by: Alvin YbañezSeptember 16, 2013

That’s exactly what we all thought happened with Motorola’s Corvair 6-inch tablet/universal TV remote control, first leaked way back in November 2011.

The Corvair went undercover for nine whole months, but, just when everyone forgot about it, the gizmo made an illustrious appearance under a different name.
