Judging from the influx of updates that Google TV has received in the recent period, it’s clear that Google still has some faith on the platform, despite it not taking off as quickly as intended.

On the hardware side of things, we’ve seen Vizio doing its part in making Google TV more attractive by introducing the $99 Co Star, while Sony is putting a $100 premium on its NSZ-GS7 Internet player. Set to join the two soon is Netgear’s NeoTV Prime, which has recently been spotted at FCC.

The FCC filing for the Netgear NeoTV Prime reveals that the Google TV player will come with WiFi 802.11n and Bluetooth 3.0. We also get a first look of the bulky remote controller, but not of the actual device.

Luckily, the folks at Engadget have gotten their hands on pictures of the box alongside the accompanying accessories. Note that the final design may differ from what you see on the photos. Details are still light at the moment, so pics are all we have to enjoy for now. The NeoTV Prime and Asus Qube might make an appearance at the upcoming CES 2013.
