Motorola's latest toy has been leaked out, with it being a 6-inch Android 2.3 device codenamed "Corvair" that's designed for use in your living room. It's reportedly being tested with cable companies at the moment, but it's unsure how it's designed to be used.

The box itself calls it a "dedicated controller," but it also seems to show Corvair wirelessly displaying what is on the TV, which means it should be capable of streaming content to the tablet itself, whilst serving as a remote control. Specs-wise, theres not much known apart from the 6-inch screen size and Android 2.3. The box does state the design is "optimized for low cost," so there wouldn't be any super high-end specs inside, at all.

Also included is an IR control and RF4CE, a ZigBee-based RF control protocol, as well as a high-capacity 4,000mAh battery. The battery is a great feature, because if the Corvair is going to live on your coffee table or living room, you'll want it to last a fairly long time.
