Amazon's Streaming Device Could Be a Dongle  Print E-mail

According to a report from TechCrunch, Amazon's upcoming streaming video device will come in the form of a dongle rather than a traditional set-top box like the Apple TV. Instead, the rumored stick will resemble Google's Chromecast and Roku's HDMI streaming stick.

Previous reports indicated that the streaming device would likely use a modified version of Google's Android OS and allow users to play video and music from a variety of sources including Amazon's Prime Instant Video and MP3 library. The rumored dongle is being designed by Lab126 and TechCrunch's sources also claim that the stick will be able to stream full PC games.

Amazon has yet to officially announce the potential device, but earlier rumors hinted at a March release. Likewise, images of an alleged Amazon console controller leaked last week, and it's possible that these items are related, bringing the company's streaming video and gaming plans together. Stay tuned to High-Def Digest for more details as they become available.
