Syabas Popbox now available for purchase
When we got a look at the Syabas Popbox back at CES, the company said the 1080p-streaming set top box would start shipping by the end of March. Well, they missed that goal by about four months, but you can now purchase the Popbox for $129 from sites like Amazon. The Popbox is like a smaller Popcorn Hour that supports 100Mbps 1080p streaming, and has what essentially amount to an App Store, letting you choose different sites and services to integrate into your device. You know, things like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and the like. They call them “Popapps.” One glaring omission? Netflix. Hopefully that one comes back sooner rather than later though. We’ve got a video of the Popbox for you after the break, but just ignore the Netflix integration that was present when we recorded, okay?
Now, where’s that Boxee Box?
