Logitech Tells Gigabyte To Halt Google TV Set Top Box Production

Computer peripherals maker Logitech has ordered Gigabyte Technology to suspend the production of the Google TV powered Revue set-top-boxes.

T3 reports that production of the set top boxes has ceased until March 2011. The reason given was that Google is reportedly working on a new software update for the service.

The system has been dogged by criticism for containing a number of bugs and Google has opted to delay making the system more available so that it can iron out the problems.

It has also been predicted that the Google may intergrate Android 3.0 Honeycomb into the system.

The news comes just a few days after Google asked partnering manufacturers to hold from launching TV sets intergrated with the Google TV system at next month’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

Google currently has teamed up with LG, Toshiba, Sharp, Logitech, Samsung and Sony to produce television sets and hardware containing its web steaming technology.
