The Sony Dash seems like one of the most overlooked gadgets to come out of CES. It’s a portable internet device that’s capable of a lot of things. It’s based on the Chumby OS which means that over a thousand applications are able to be installed on it.
Netflix is the newest application to reach the device, which should help to increase interest a bit. It’s integrated much like it is on other devices. You can’t search Netflix directly, but you can browse your queue and Netflix suggested movies.
The Dash itself only runs $199, which makes purchasing it as a standalone Netflix player a very reasonable scenario. The screen is 7” and only 800 x 480, but at that size the resolution would be less noticeable.
