Mit dem Fire TV hat Amazon die TV-Set-Top-Box auf den Markt gebracht, um die sich in letzter Zeit vermehrt Gerüchte rankten.
Amazon officially announced a TV streaming box called Amazon Fire TV at its press event in New York Wednesday morning. The device is a set-top box with a dedicated remote control that is powered by a quad-core CPU and a dedicated GPU, which results in it being three times as powerful as competitors like Apple TV and Roku. Fire TV goes on sale immediately for $99.
The device comes with a dedicated remote control that enables voice input through a microphone button. The box itself is connected through 802.11 a/b/g/n dual-band Wi-Fi. There is also an Ethernet port, optical audio out, obviously HDMI and a single USB 2.0 port.
