    Xiaomi Box takes on Apple TV and Google TV - SlashGear (click for full article)

    Chris Davies, Nov 14th 2012

    "Xiaomi may be better known for its Chinese smartphones, but the company has a new set-top box that it hopes will take some of the shine off of the Apple TV and various Google TV adapters. The unimaginatively titled Xiaomi Box runs the MIUI version of Android and promises wireless streaming from your Android phone or tablet, iPhone, iPad, PC, or Mac, as well as movie and TV show rentals and purchases from a range of Chinese stores.


    Out of the box there's supposedly support for AirPlay, DLNA, and Miracast, as well as Android apps, while an open API allows developers and content providers to cook up services and features specifically for the STB. A broad range of media types are supported, including Full HD video (RM / RMVB, MKV, TS, FLV, AVI, VOB, MOV, WMV, MP4), together with various audio and picture types."

    Sounds nice - except the 800MHz processor seems kind of slow. I wonder if this will be eventually available in USA.

    I can't see any chance for an official US release.
