Uh oh. Looks like it'll be a while before you can get your hands on a D-Link Boxee Box. Apparently the device's availability date has been changed to November:
Earlier this week we got confirmation that the Boxee Box by D-Link will ship this November in US and Canada. We realise many of you have waited months to purchase the Boxee Box, and we know how frustrating this is. Believe us when we say that both Boxee & D-Link want to start selling Boxee Boxes yesterday.
The original plan was to have the Box out by the end of Q2 (i.e. just about now), but that time-frame proved overly ambitious.
Our vision is to make the Boxee experience on a set top box as good as (and where we can, better than) the one you already know on a PC. The goal is to play HD videos from the web or a local network in 1080p and use hardware acceleration whenever possible. And to provide a TV browser experience that can handle almost everything you throw at it, including Flash 10.1. Not to mention making all this happen for an affordable price and on a quiet device that will not feel obsolete 12 months after you buy it.
We are looking forward to the November launch with D-Link and believe it will deliver a user experience that sets the standard for accessing stuff from the Internet and from your home network on your TV.
In the meantime, it feels good to have a date set for the release of the Boxee Box, and we can't wait to get it to you.
