One thing that makes the D-Link Pebble stand apart from the tens hundreds of other digital media devices we’ve seen is its unique design. It’s shaped like, well, a pebble and its small, black and compact. No surprise that this is coming from D-Link, after all, they’re the ones behind the unique design of the Boxee Box.
On the technical side, nothing that will change your opinion of the space. It will can connect to a home network, either via Ethernet or 802.11n WiFi. From there, it can play any video or audio you want, or display pictures that are stored on networked computers or network attached storage.
Via the Pebble’s USB 2.0 ports, you can play content off of USB thumb drives or external hard drives attached to the device via USB. D-Link also has promised a SD card slot for further media-playing options. No word on what resolutions it will play, but D-Link promises that it can playback “high resolution quality” video. For video-out, it does have a HDMI 1.3 port.
D-Link will be aiming for the entry-level of the market and will only be charging $120 for the device. Excited? You can expect to start seeing the D-Link Pebble for sale online and in retail store sometime in the first half of 2010.
