Google TV exists among the hands of Beta testers, It seems that few of the beta testers for Google TV couldn’t keep all that goodness to themselves and they shared video of the near-finished interface and hardware.

Logitech Revue Google TV

Logitech Revue is a small piece of hardware that attaches to your existing set-top-box (STB) and provides a intuitive interface controllable via a wireless keyboard/Android phone.

As far as the Google TV UI is concerned, the interface looks great, all those nested menu items starting on the left, search bar able accessible at any time. since the early preview, some visual improvements have been made to the bookmarks layout and thumbnails.

The “What’s On TV” category looks handy,

Navigation is controlled via the keyboard pictured above, which has a built-in trackpad and d-pad, or via any Harmony controller, including the Harmony Connect app.

The Logitech hardware looks solid; I like the two USB ports plus HDMI in. That means sharing what you’ve got around the house, be it on your camcorder or a five-year-old USB drive.
