He attributes the delay to wanting to provide 1080p HD video playback from the web and local network shares, hardware acceleration support via Flash 10.1, and new to the mix... a TV web browser (most likely in an effort to compete with Google TV). Target price: "just under $200.""</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1276758517.usr11334.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>If you were hoping to have your hands on&nbsp;the Boxee Box which was promised Q2 2010, then you'll have to wait a little bit longer.&nbsp; Boxee admitted on their blog that the <em>'time-frame proved overly ambitious' </em>and that they will now be releasing it in November.&nbsp; A good guess is that one of the reasons for delay was the wait for the latest version of flash to be released, but with Google rumoured to be releasing their new TV box around the same time, that delay could hurt.</p>
