Logitech Rebukes Claims About Google TV Delays

Computer peripheral maker Logitech has denied that Google forced it to delay the production of its Revue set-top-boxes so that it could update the Google TV software.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the company has denied that Google asked it to delay the production and claimed that the recent updates made to the device have garnered positive reviews.

“Suggestions that production of the Logitech Revue companion box might need to be halted to address software issues are unfounded. As those familiar with the product know, it is not necessary for Logitech to make changes to the companion box to accommodate future enhancements to Google TV,” a spokeswoman told WSJ.

The company also added that it was busy in meeting the inventory needs of its partner retailers on top of the holiday and post-holiday demands of its customers.

Earlier, The New York Times had cited some sources who claimed that the search engine giant had asked TV makers and other Google TV hardware partners to stop production until it releases a software update to iron out some issues.
