Media Players

Syabas Popbox

It has been the topic of discussion among those who like complete freedom and control over their living room. Who will win the battle, the Boxee Box or the Syabas Popbox? We think the advantage is going to go, at least initially to the Syabas popbox as they have already started shipping their units via Amazon. That and the fact that it will feature Real3D support will probably be things to give this one an advantage right out of the gate. [CrunchGear]

Release date and pricing is still unknown at this time. [WirelessGoodness]

XStreamHD Device

We are getting pretty excited over here about the development of this new XStreamHD Device. From what we gather, it will work on the principal of pre-fetched entertainment meaning you will be able to view movies without having to download or stream the content. During the nighttime, the data for up to 40 movies is sent to your box so you can view them at your leisure. The best part of this is that all of the movies will be coming to you in Bluray quality. There will be a $10 monthly charge however. [DVICE]
