Boxee's first official hardware to premiere December 7
Boxee, the freeware multimedia management software based on the XBMC framework will soon be getting its own set top box.
Boxee's Avner Ronen today announced that the startup has signed its first partnership with a consumer electronics hardware company, and that the mockups of the upcoming set-top box will be shown off on December 7.
"This will be the first connected device running Boxee, but the idea is to provide consumers with a way to get Boxee in their living rooms, no matter whether it's on a Connected TV, game console, set-top box, BluRay player, computer, etc," Ronen said today. "Our goal is to be on every Connected device in the living room."
Last week, we saw the first shots of the upcoming Myka ION "nettop box," which is already running both Boxee and XBMC. We've sent out inquiries to find out if the two products are related in any way.
