It’s here–finally. The Boxee Box, manufactured by D-link, is on its way into your home (should you want to fork over the money for it). It’s more expensive than its main competitors, the Apple TV and Google TV, but it still brings your favorite television shows and movies from the internet or your hard drive onto your television, without the computer as a mediator.
We played with this thing at CES, and it was fab back then. The Boxee Box comes with HDMI, optical and RCA stereo audio, WiFi (802.11n), Ethernet, two USB ports, an SD card slot and an RF remote that flips over to reveal a QWERTY keyboard. You can pre-order the device on Amazon for 9.99.
