To see a particular device arrive on the FCC is always a good thing – this means that said device is more or less ready to be unleashed to the masses, and is only a matter of time. Of course, there are some rare moments when an FCC-approved device fails to materialize on store shelves for reasons known only to the manufacturer/distributor, but I suppose that will not be the case with the Chumby NeTV. Having passed all the requirements and tests at the FCC, this particular device is set to arrive at developers’ hands later this month.
There is no retail date available just yet, but we do know that this will be a Flash-based device that has Wi-Fi connectivity thrown into the mix. Are your eyeballs ready for a different kind of web-connected HDTV experience in the living room?
Imagine streaming all sorts of online content to your Android-powered handset, or even to another flat panel display when you’re in a different room. Are you looking forward to pick up the Chumby NeTV?
