Logitech Revue’s new packaging claims Android 3.1 Honeycomb and Android Market

New packaging for the Logitech Revue has leaked and it now sports a sticker claiming that the Google TV set-top box now comes with Android 3.1 Honeycomb and Android Market. This along with the recently leaked screenshots of the new interface suggests that the long promised Google TV update should be just around the corner.

However, following this leak, Logitech clarified that the new packaging is not meant to hit store shelves until the update is released, adding that if any retail stores are selling these newly packaged boxes that they are doing so prematurely. Furthermore, Logitech revealed that the product remains unchanged and that the new packaging is merely a sticker added to existing boxes.

Google announced back at I/O 2011 that Google TV would be getting a major update that would bring Android 3.1 Honeycomb along with Android Market, making apps available to Google TV as well as allowing developers to create apps specifically for the TV interface. The update was set to hit this summer, but that has come and gone. Google has since released the add-on SDK for developers but has yet to roll out the update.
