After a very long wait, the Boxee Box has gotten an official ship date. Let's say it altogether: finally!
First announced last December, consumers were able to start pre-ordering in September - although a launch date still hadn't been announced. North American pricing is still set at $199, and it will begin shipping (to those who pre-ordered via Amazon) throughout the United States on Wednesday, November 10. It won't be in stores, however, until at least November 17. Anyone ordering from Canada, the UK, Australia and New Zealand can pre-order now, but it might arrive a bit later.
Boxee held out for a long time with this device, even making the switch to an Intel Atom CE4100 processor. Hopefully it's not too late for the Boxee Box to make a splash in the set-top box market, which has expanded quite a bit this year with several new entries from Roku, Apple and others.
Have you pre-ordered the Boxee Box already? If not, are you planning on picking up one of these or going a different route for Internet video streaming on your TV?
