FCC Unveils Mystery Roku XD S Device

Remember earlier this month we reported that the FCC brought to light a couple new Roku XD & XD Player products that are in the pipeline — with one being manufactured by NETGEAR? Well, Wireless Goodness has uncovered a third Roku device called the XD S which provides 802.11n Wi-Fi, Ethernet, USB, component/composite/HDMI video, and optical audio. If I was betting man, I’d say the XD S (as in “Small” or “Slim”) is being positioned to go head-to-head with Apple’s compact, second generation Apple TV device. I guess we’ll have to wait ’til CES 2011 to find out what’s up.
