Flip Video remote a sign of in-home media hub?
A new FCC filing reveals a new RF remote control with Flip Video branding but produced by Foxconn is on its way. Flip Video, known for its small, simple HD cameras such as the Flip Ultra HD, is unlikely to need a remote the size of the device itself for its cameras, so this sighting may indicate a new product for the company, such as a living room or home theater device.
Flip Video is a brand of Pure Digital, which itself was bought out by Cisco. Cisco has been known for attempting to build a media hub for the home, though it has had little success with the Linksys brand and might use a Flip-branded device in its place.
The remote itself is simple, with only a few buttons and what appears to be a directional pad for navigation of what would presumably be an on-screen menu. [via Engadget]
