The D-Link Boxee Box will be available in the Middle East & Africa starting in January 2011. The little black box allows users to watch available movies and TV programmes from the Internet, stream videos from nearly any website, exchange recommendations with friends using social media sites like Facebook, organize and enjoy personal music, photos and videos, and browse the Internet, all from a simple to use remote.
As part of the Middle Eastern & African availability, D-Link announced that the Intel Atom CE4100, Intel’s system-on-a-chip designed for TV and Internet integration, will power the Boxee Box. The powerful Intel-based hardware allows Boxee’s open software platform to deliver up to full 1080p HD over a wired or Wireless N network. With hundreds of apps already available and an intuitive interface, the Boxee Box by D-Link gives users unparalleled access to on-demand entertainment and newfound control over their TV.
