Paul Lilly

Chumby on Wednesday announced the release of the Chumby 8, the latest version of the uber popular Internet appliance. The Chumby 8 launches on April 5 and is available via pre-order now for $200. It comes with a sleeker design, 8-inch LCD touchscreen, over 1,500 apps, and a handful of enhanced features.

Some key upgrades new to the Chumby line include:

  • Two USB ports
  • CF and SD card slots
  • A new Web browser so you can access links within apps
  • Task scheduler
  • Flash Lite 4 update to support AS3 (coming soon)

The Chumby 8 certainly looks different than any previous Chumby device, resembling a digital photo frame this time around. If that appeals to your sense to style, you can place your pre-order here .
