Amazon's media streaming set-top box is set for 'imminent' release
According to multiple new reports, Amazon's highly anticipated media streaming set-top box is set for imminent release, likely within a few weeks.

Reportedly, the retail giant has already begun distributing pre-production hardware to developers to begin working on native applications.



The set-top box will come bundled with the Prime streaming library, say the reports, although it is unclear whether that means buyers will get a full Prime membership which also includes free 2-day shipping on million of items.

Staples and Best Buy have already signed on to carry the set-top starting in early April, but the price has not been revealed.

The device will use the Amazon "Fire" version of Android, meaning there will be an Amazon app store, not the standard Google Play store.

    Better not be more than ~ $70. With Roku, and all the other -- and more mature -- streaming players, they need some real value adds to be even worth considering.
