Popbox gets July 23 ship date, initial app lineup

Popbox finally launching this month

Syabas has established a concrete ship date for the Popbox. The media hub should ship on July 23.

Pre-orders had already begun in May.

Popcorn Hour sequel handles 1080p

Syabas preluded CES today with its most ambitious media hub to date. The Popbox replaces the Popcorn Hour as the flagship media hub and revolves around a major, much more polished interface overhaul designed by Moxie's inventor and former Microsoft executive Dewey Reid. In addition to showing visual thumbnails of virtually everything and universal search, the interface has applets known as Infopops that show weather, Twitter feeds and other data whenever the viewer pauses what's playing. As with the previously available Popapps, new Infopops can be added over time.
