Qualcomm's PTV player seen in live shot

Qualcomm PTV caught in photo

Qualcomm's PTV media player gained substance today through a leak that appears to show a real prototype of the device. Although less elaborate than the concept drawing, it reflects the basic all-touchscreen design and the existence of a stand to keep the player upright for watching the player's signature FLO TV digital over-the-air video. A 3.5mm headphone jack and speakers are also visible in the BGR shot.

Earlier details of the device have it getting a 4-inch capacitive (finger-sensitive) touchscreen, 4GB of storage and support for locally stored music and videos. The PTV may debut at CES, but its business model is unknown. FLO TV is only available on cellphones so far as a subscription service through AT&T or Verizon, which may not necessarily work for a stand-alone player.
