Way back in January at CES Boxee announced that Iomega where going to be bringing out a Boxee box and finally tomorrow its going to be available on Amazon.  There are two version available, there is the £219 Iomega TV without storage which is essentially the same as the D-Link box and there is the £299.99 box with 2TB of storage.  I am not sure if the market needs another box but the addition of local storage is an advantage over the D-Link box.  Not so good news for US readers, according to gigaom.com the Iomega are not planning to launch the box in the US:

“Currently, there are no plans to launch Iomega TV with Boxee in North America,” Iomega’s Senior Director of Worldwide Communications and Public Relations, Chris Romoser
