It's part of some new media hub service.
Technicolor! Chances are, the name conjures up images of old movies from before you were born. Back in the Olden Days, people didn't have fancy terms like 1080p. They had to make due with VistaVision, Technicolor and whatever other colorizing method was in vogue at the time. It was a dark time, but we're well past all that now.
Don't Miss: The Best HDR TVs
Except we aren't. Because Technicolor is still freaking everywhere. Including CES 2011, where they'll be unveiling a portfolio of cool new goodies to ring in the new decade. One is a media navigation portal that "unifies all TV, online and personal content" in a single screen interface with social media integration. It can be accessed on your computer, phone, iPad, etc.
But it won't stop at software for Technicolor. They have the tablet bug as bad as anyone, and plan to reveal their Android OS media slate at CES 2011. It is "designed to manage all digital home entertainment". Which sounds a lot like the purpose of that media portal.
This tablet has already made its way through FCC certification. It has the unit name TVA200 and packs WiFi n. The display is 7" with an 800x480 resolution. The processor is a healthy 800 MHz Cortex A8. It'll have SD card support, at least one USB slot, a camera and a microphone.
Technicolor seems to be making a home entertainment tablet, something built for couch use rather than extended wandering action. The design looks a little cheap from those FCC shots, more like a toy than a real tablet. We'll see if it can impress in person at CES 2011.
