By on August 2nd, 2011

This piece of news will interest only the small bunch of Logitech Revue owners out there. Google announced at Google I/O this year that Google TV will also get Honeycomb update sometime this year.

Well, a beta build of Android 3.1 Honeycomb for the Logitech Revue has leaked online. While this may get a lot of Revue owners excited, the problem is that most of the stuffs don’t work in this beta build.

Here is a small list of what works, and what does not :

What works:

  • Overall improvement in performance
  • New UI is clean and compliments features very well
  • Live Wallpapers
  • Android Market
  • TV/Movie listings display what looks like DVD covers when available
  • ADBD

What does not works:

  • Sound issues while watching TV
  • No Netflix
  • No root access
  • It’s not possible to downgrade to 2.1 at the moment
  • No Google Apps
  • The Intel Atom CPU inside the Revue is incompatible with 99.99% of the apps on the Market

Revue users who are interested in flashing this update, can find the required steps here. But before that, I guess they need to find the Revue and wipe off the dust that it has collected!
