Digitimes is reporting that Logitech has decided to halt production of new Logitech Revue Google TV boxes until the end of next month. Gigabyte, the manufacturer of the devices, allegedly received word that no more units should be produced until Google completes an expected software update. Analysts had originally predicted that Logitech would ship 500,000 Google TV units by the end of 2010, it is unclear if this stop in production will significantly affect their numbers.
Google TV has been plagued by slow performance, and blocked online network content since it shipped last month. Logitech my feel it makes more sense to continue building Google TV devices when the new software can be pre-loaded, as opposed to updating them after the fact. The update is expected to contain support for a version of the Android Market for Google TV.
