Google TV Software Update Ready; New Hardware Will Have to Wait - Ina Fried - Media - AllThingsD

You can still pick up a Logitech Revue for $99.99, if you don’t want to wait until next year

The new version of Google TV is based on the Honeycomb version of Android, and can run some existing programs as well as a number of new apps specifically designed to work with the product. However, most Android apps won’t work, as they require features such as telephony or a touchscreen.

Queiroz said that of the hundreds of thousands of Android apps, there should be around 1,800 apps that will work with Google TV initially, and even most of those won’t be optimized for the TV. Google has been working with about 50 developers on the first TV-optimized apps, he said.
