RIM rumored to be planning Apple TV competitor

Research In Motion is reportedly going into the home entertainment business with a rumored set-top box in the works intended to rival Apple TV. Nerdberry is reporting that RIM is developing a BlackBerry OS-based media box similar to Apple's set-top box that will be dubbed as the "BlackBerry Cyclone." Expected features include HDMI, Wi-Fi connectivity, and access to Netflix, YouTube and more unspecified channels. Not much else is known at the moment except that we should be seeing this device this fall - if it is really going to happen.
