Dlink DSM-380 is official Boxee Box!

Boxee Box D-Link

Today is benefit performance of Boxee. Together with new Beta, announced in Brooklyn last night, the information about official Boxee Box was published on the Boxee website. It’ll be Dlink DSM-380! The small device (just 120mm x 120mm x 120mm) with strange design should occupy the place near your TV. There is no hardware spec yet. But I suppose that it’ll use nVidia Ion platform (maybe second generation). There are not do many port and interfaces. Just HDMI, optical S/PDIF and Composite audio, Ethernet, 2 USB ports and SD card reader. Additionally the DSM-380 is equiped with WiFi adapter and RF remote control which looks like Apple remote.

The DSM-380 should be available in the second quarter of 2010 for about $200. If so, it might be good opportunity to get advanced media player. Because the price of its nearest competitor Myka starts from $379 but it includes optical drive.

Regarding the design of DSM-380. Sure the Boxee and DLink know better how their device should look like. But personally I prefer something more practical like AppleTV or ASUS EEE Desktop, which can fit any A/V stand or be mounted behind TV.
