Netgear NeoTV Prime reaches FCC, remote control detailed

updated 05:01 pm EST, Sun December 2, 2012

Streaming app buttons along base, touchpad controls

Netgear's set-top box, the NeoTV Prime, has reached the FCC. Testing documents by the FCC reveals not only the Google TV system's Wi-Fi component, as seen in previous iterations, but also Bluetooth connectivity. There are also a number of photographs of the remote control's double-sided layout. Where the front performs normal remote control functions, the rear houses a QWERTY keyboard.

Dedicated buttons for various big-name streaming suppliers, such as Netflix, YouTube, Amazon, Vudu, and HBO Go are located towards the base of the handset, while a touchpad near the top is meant for navigation. As spotted by GTV Hacker, the accompanying Wi-Fi module can connect to 802.11n networks, and has Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity, though it does not support ad-hoc Wi-fi networks.

Despite the remote being revealed, the main system itself is not shown in the filings. It is likely that the NeoTV Prime box itself will make a more formal appearance at CES.
