Verizon announced earlier this week that it’s trialing new eco-friendly Motorola set-tops requiring less power and packaged with recycled and recyclable materials. What Verizon didn’t mention in the early announcement is that these same set-tops come with double the hard-drive size of current FiOS boxes. The new Motorola QIP7232 set-top model includes 320 GB of storage space in addition to a faster processor, more memory for future widgets and apps, and 20% greater energy efficiency. It’s also smaller and lighter weight than earlier models.
More specs below. Expect these set-tops to show up soon in select FiOS households.
Key hardware features:
- Energy Star Tier 1 compliant
- 320 GB hard drive
- Upgraded memory: 512 MB DRAM, 64 MB Flash
- Three-prong power supply
- Recycled plastic front panel 20% post-consumer waste
