CES 2009 – Samsung readies next–gen set-top box

Set top boxes don't exactly inspire excitement in even the most hardened of gadget freaks. But Samsung's going to be doing its darnedest to change all

Part of Samsung's Digital Living Network Alliance, which is set to be unveiled over in Vegas, the box will grab MP3s, video and pictures from your PC, phone or compatible PMP, so you can check them out on your TV.

On top of that, word is that any content you've got stored on your box will be accessible from your phone or PMP, as long as it plays nice with the box itself. Sadly, no more details are up for grabs at the moment, but we'll be making a beeline for the Samsung stand as soon as we get to CES, so keep it locked for more news as we get it.
