In a press release, Litl announced their plans to come out with a new “web-connected TV product”, which is set for an early 2011 release. Like the Webbook, the (yet unnamed) set-top box will be primary net-based with just a web browser and Flash-based apps.
The new device will attempt to solve the problem of creating a rich, easy Web-browsing experience, while sitting on the couch and watching TV.
The Litl box will run an open Linux-based OS, the same used in the Webbook, making it easier to encourage users to create web apps due to the open OS. litl will also be releasing an Adobe Flash 10.1-based Software Development Kit (SDK) at this weekend’s Flash and the City developers conference.
Some additional notes here, Engadget is reporting that the Litl set-top box will come with a smartphone-style remote control, while the box itself will have a x86 processor, HDMI and Composite video ports, as well as the option for wired Ethernet or WiFi out of the box.
