Here’s a set-top for the Japanese market that’s sure to make US consumers a little jealous. Long-time Motorola customer KDDI will launch the VIP2060 on June 2nd as part of the provider’s “au Hikari” service. The HD DVR set-top sports 500GB of storage, four tuners, and the ability to deliver IPTV signals as well as terrestrial and satellite broadcasts. The Motorola VIP2060 supports 1Gpbs fiber connections, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 encoding, and KDDI’s service allowing subscribers to transfer content between set-tops and mobile devices. Talk about fixed-mobile convergence.
