Boxee logo After a very long wait after the official announcement all the way back in December of last year The Boxee Box by D-Link is finally available for pre-order on Amazon.com for $199.99.

Just in case you were living deep in the forest for the last few months and missed the announcement here’s the skinny on The Boxee Box:

  • It runs the free open-source software that was in the epicenter of the heated debates with Hulu in the winter of 2010.
  • It brings all your favorite TV shows & movies from the Internet or your hard drive onto your TV – no PC needed. You’ll never run out of things to watch (and listen to) as Boxee gives people movies, TV shows, music and photos, as well as streaming content from websites like Netflix, MLB.TV, Comedy Central, Pandora, Last.fm, and flickr.
  • With the Boxee Box you never need to “surf the Web” on your TV, instead you just use your remote control to pick and choose the best digital entertainment. No keyboard required.
  • The Boxee Box plays any non-DRM media. If you can create it, Boxee will play it.
  • Connecting the Boxee Box to your HDTV is as easy as hooking up a DVD player.
  • The backside of the remote features a full keyboard to make it easier to interact with your TV — say goodbye to hunting and pecking for letters on-screen!
  • Boxee makes it easy for friends to share their favorite movies, TV Shows, and songs with each other, on Boxee or on social networks like Facebook and Twitter.
  • It has a very weird shape (see the photos below).
  • And YES, you can tweet from it. :*)
