Whilst I’m not 100% sure about the design of the Box itself, I’m pretty enthused about the remote design (particularly the keyboard on the reverse) and the fact they’re selling this outside the US, something that still hasn’t happened with the Roku.

You can pre-order from Amazon US ($199), Amazon UK (199.99GBP) and other resellers worldwide.

Would I go with a Boxee Box over an Apple TV right now? Given the amount of Apple kit and Apple-format media in the house, probably not, but I’ll definitely be giving Boxee another look on the desktop.
