The product, announced at the Reuters Global Media Summit, will be showcased at the Consumer Electronics show right after Motorola Inc spins off Motorola Mobility, which includes its set-top box and cellphone business, from the rest of the company on January 4.

Daniel Moloney, president of Motorola Mobility, sees the offering as a first step in his efforts to combine set-top box and cellphone technology to eventually allow consumers to view any content anywhere on different devices in the next five years.

"It's one consumer proposition that will come sooner rather than later," Moloney told the Reuters Global Media Summit on Wednesday.
