Motorola Corvair TV Controller Tablet Appears in Verizon Survey
Motorola hasn’t been putting out as many products as they used to, ever since they were incorporated by Google, but here’s an interesting product uncovered in a recent Verizon survey. I’m talking about the Motorola Corvair TV controller tablet, that was dubbed as “FiOS Companion” in the survey mentioned above.
Last I heard about this device, it was supposed to be a 6 inch Android tablet known as Corvair. This model was apparently designed for controlling cable TV set top boxes. The rendering matches the pictures leaked before and shows a Verizon branded UI on a WiFi tablet with standard Android apps. The focus here is a bunch of universal remote features, plus the ability to stream a group of TV channels. I guess that this product will be sold as some kind of part of a bundle, with TV/carrier services or something.
No idea on what hardware specs this model offers, but they should be pretty modest, since the device is more of a companion than a standalone slate. As you can see written on the box of the Motorola Corvair, this device runs Android 2.3, has a 4000 mAh battery and infrared connectivity.
