Motorola Corvair box

Last week saw Motorola unveil a fresh pair of Android-powered tablets: the 10.1-inch XOOM 2 and 8.2-inch XOOM 2 Media Edition. Now another Moto-made tablet-style device has leaked out, but this one's a tad more unique than the new XOOMs. Codenamed Corvair, this little guy is a 6-inch slate running Android 2.3 that's described as a "dedicated controller" on its box and looks to be capable of controlling your cable box. However, the front of the Corvair's box shows it streaming the contents of its display to a TV, so it may also be able to show media of its own if there's nothing good on TV. Spec details are still light, but so far we know that the Corvair is packing a 6-inch screen, IR and RF4CE (an RF controller protocol), 4,000mAh battery, what will likely be a highly customized version of Gingerbread, and a design that's "optimized for low cost."

Although there's still quite a bit we don't know about the Corvair, it's definitely got my attention, especially if it's actually able to control a cable box and then stream content to a big screen if there's no worthwhile programming to be found. The device is purportedly in testing with cable companies right now, so here's to hoping that they don't feel the need to muck with it much before its launch. Any of you cable subscribers out there think you might be interested in a product like the Corvair?
