IFA 2005: Philips launches Windows Media Center

Share

Further proof, if it were needed, that this year’s consumer electronics show in Berlin is all about convergence and HD. Consumer electronics giant Philips has announced it is launching an HD-compatible Windows Media Center in October as part of its ‘Connected Planet’ range. Called the MCP9350i, this all-in-one entertainment solution comes with 250GB hard drive and features wi-fi (802.11b/g connectivity) and Intel Pentium 4 3Ghz processor. Importantly, it’s a silver and black coloured set-top box which looks like it should sit neatly under the TV. The only downside is the price. Expected to go on the market for 1499 Euros, it seems a little on the pricey side at the moment. However prices are expected to fall.

  • I’ve seen this in John Lewis and it looks great. HD demo was impressive and it’s better than the other media centers I’ve seen!
