The interesting part of the FCC Approval is that we do get the external and internal pictures, so we can get a better look at the hardware.
First let’s have a look at Webtube HD Casing.
As we already knew, this media player is designed and manufactured by InnoDigital Co. Ltd. The news is that it will be distributed by Yonsei Corporation Ltd, a rather recent Japanese Company apparently only setup to promote Webtube HD. (Japanese name: ブラウザBOX)

The main thing we do not know is the board SoC. This picture has probably been blurred on purpose, but It seen to be a Samsung Chip to me.
If this is correct, we are looking for a chipset from Samsung that can support H.264 decode and output 720p with probably some 3D support for Android. So I guess Webtube HD is based on Samsung SOPC100 (Custom Asic similar to S5PC100?), a processor with an ARM Cortex A8 core running at 883 Mhz like People of Lava’s Android TV.
