And yes, it is Wi-Fi capable for all your streaming needs.

Hey, we get it. You love your Blu-ray. You've got a good collection going and a home theater that really shows off just what the format's capable of. But there's something missing -you can't enjoy the benefits of Blu-ray on your commute to work.

That's where Audiovox comes in. Over the weekend, the company unveiled the first ever in-dash Blu-ray player. The player is designed not only to help reap the benefits of the format, but to make life easier for Blu-ray fans. "This mobile solution will allow them to maintain a single video collection that works both in the vehicle and at home," says Audiovox president Tom Malone.

One of the really interesting things about the new AVDBR1 Blu-ray player is that it boasts Wi-Fi capability and, after a firmware update later this year, will be able to handle a variety of streaming services.

You'll be able to pick up the AVDBR1 in the spring of 2011 for a suggested price of $349.
