Sony HID-C10 spotted at FCC, brings Wi-Fi to TVs

Sony is planning to release a device called HID-C10, with the prefix standing for Home Information Device, according to a recent FCC filing. While details are scarce, it is known that the device will connect to TVs and has a Wi-Fi connection. As such, the device could just offer a wire-free Internet connection for Sony's web-connected HDTVs.

There is also the possibility that the HID-C10 will offer a greater range of functions, such as home automation, letting users control things like lights and thermostats. There is also the possibility that the device will ship with Sony's upcoming 3D TVs, though this hasn't been supported by any evidence. A confidentiality agreement found in the FCC pages is dated for May 31st, 2010, so the device may not be out until at least then. [via SonyInsider]
