long-awaited Linux based media player device ready to ship

Filed under

The Popcorn Hour C-200, the latest 'Networked Media Tank' device from Syabas (the makers of the popular A-100 and A-110) is finally ready. Online orders directly from Popcorn Hour can be placed starting from tomorrow (27th August 2009 12:00AM PST) and shipping is supposed to start on September 3rd.

The C-200 main enhancements compared to the A-110 are the full support for Blu-ray discs, as it incorporates a slot where a standard 5.25" PC Blu-ray drive can be inserted which makes the C-200 a fully featured BD+ Blu-ray player, the new much faster processor which will allow for better-looking and faster to navigate GUIs, and the back-lit LCD display on the front of the unit, which means the player can be used for music playback without switching on the TV.
