Sony Dash B7 and B70 joined by N200 in US

Sony as part of its home media push Wednesday unveiled a rearchitected Dash and brought the N200 streaming media player to the US. The Dash HID-B7 and HID-B70 are now PC-free, having their own setup processes, and have a simple web browser for a quick information check. The B70 adds a built-in lithium-ion battery to let it serve as a traveling clock radio.

Both of the Chumby-based devices continue to carry seven-inch touchscreens and support Flickr, Photobucket, and Sony Personal Space for photos; Pandora and Shoutcast provide Internet radio, and various apps are downloadable after the fact for Facebook, Twitter, news, and other content. Either Dash gets online through Wi-Fi.

The B7 and B70 together will ship in October at prices of $130 for the black-only B7 and $170 for the blue, brown, and orange B70 editions.

The N200 is identical to its European sibling and has access to the full Sony music and movie services along with local network sharing over DLNA. It upgrades its ancestor with 3D and the option of watching live events.

N200 devices reach the US in October for $100 and will have free Android and iOS remote control apps.
