What happens when you cross a remote control and an Android tablet? We might just have the answer in the form of the 6-inch Motorola Corvair. The recently-spied Android 2.3 tablet is currently in testing (and seen here in its packaging) and is tagged as a “Dedicated controller for the connect[ed]…” with who or what the controller is connected to remaining a mystery. The likely plan is for the Corvair to act as a remote control for your TV set or home automation system, which means we will probably see it offered as a bundled device with your cable plan. The tablet will use the same (or similar) built-in IR technology found in the recently announced XOOM 2.
