Boxee Box Almost Here, Pre-Order Now


Boxee Box preorderI was just now checking my inbox, and I noticed a email from Team Boxee.  Instantly I got excited, I almost forgot all about the long awaited Boxee Box, especially with the release of Google TV.  I almost pulled the trigger last week and bought the Logitech settop Google TV unit, but I didn’t.  Main reason right now, the price.  $300 is a lot just to have Google on my HDTV.

Getting back to the Boxee email, it was a reminder that the D-Link produced Boxee Box was launching on November 10th.  They wanted a RSVP to the Boxee launch party next week.  The email also had a link to the Boxee Box pre-order page.  Boy, did I click on that link fast!!  It took me to a pre-order page, and I quickly noticed the $199 price tag.

After scanning the Amazon product page, I checked out the basic specs and features.  It does look promising.  Its a bit of a ackward design, but with the obvious HDMI port, you also get 2 USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet port, and wireless 802.11n/g/b built-in!  It looks like it can handle all the major video and media formats including TS, MP4, AVI, FLV and MKV.

As I mentioned, its up for pre-order worldwide as of today.  If you pre-order now it will arrive on November 10th, otherwise it will be in-store everywhere on November 17th.  Head over to Boxee’s pre-order page to find a retailer in your country.

What do you think, would you get the Boxee Box or do you want GoogleTV instead?  Drop a comment and let me know what you think.
