netgear fccFolks over at the FCC have gone through and scrutinized the Netgear NeoTV Prime, which means said device is being lined to be released in a short while later. Also known by its model number as GTV100, GTV Hacker, who sifted through a pair of curious FCC testing documents, found out that the remote comes with a QWERTY keyboard, in addition to having a touchpad thrown into the mix in addition to the standard bunch of control buttons that have been augmented with several app shortcuts for Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, Vudu, HBO Go and Crackle.

Keep your fingers crossed that Amazon and HBO Go buttons will also be part of the mash up, which could eventually indicate that dedicated apps are well on their way, instead of relying on the current set of website shortcuts. The wireless module itself is not as revealing, where we do know that the name, 802.11n, Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity and a far than impressive set of ad-hoc wireless network support is available. It would be interesting to see how the Netgear NeoTV Prime fits into the rest of the set top box market.
