Syabas technology has announced that the new HD Media Player from their stables, the PopBox, shall be making its way to the stores in just a few weeks from now. In all likelihood, the PopBox HD Media player should be available on Amazon beginning July 23. We are not sure if a pre-order is going to be made available. Also, absolutely no word on the pricing as yet.
So what are you going to get on PopBox? Well, while there are several things to get impressed, we must make it clear that the new PopBox does not contain support for Netflix. Netflix online streaming is becoming an increasingly standard feature on media players with it being offered on devices like the Popcorn Hour, Roku, Western Digital among others.
Nevertheless, PopBox is expected to be preloaded with plenty of games. Also, the HD media player will be integrated with Picasa, Youtube, Twitter, Shoutcast, Revision3 and Clicker. PopBox supports RealD 3D content and contains HDMI and component video outputs. So as you see, do not discard this choice just because it lacks Netflix.
