Logitech unveiling Google TV product on Oct. 6

The Logitech Revue will get an October 6 coming out party in Manhattan, beating Sony's competing Google TV product launch by almost a week.

It looks as if Logitech will beat Sony across the Google TV finish line.

Sony recently trumpeted an October 12 event in New York City, at which the company will be revealing its Google TV-powered Internet TV. But now Logitech has scheduled its own Google TV event in Manhattan event six days earlier.

The invitation (see photo) promises that "Google TV will be a new experience that combines TV, the entire Web, and apps--as well as a way to search across them all." The press conference will be led by Logitech's Executive VP of Products, Junien Labrousse. In other words, we should finally be getting all of the juicy details on the Logitech Revue--price, release date, specs--which was first unveiled at last May's Google I/O event .

Interestingly, the invite makes reference to Logitech's "line of products for Google TV," which indicates that the Revue may come in more than one version, or that Logitech has additional Google TV products up its sleeve.

Either way, this is certainly shaping up to be the biggest season for Internet TV products to date. Yet another reason you might want to wait --if only for a few weeks--before taking the plunge on a new Roku or Apple TV.

CNET will, of course, be on hand to cover the Logitech event live.

In the meantime: Any guesses as to what Logitech will reveal on October 6? Share your thoughts below.
