RCA Unveiles DTV-Compatible Portable TVs

Remember RCA? You didn’t? You are probably too young to remember.

But the popular electronics brand back in the day is being resurrected by current trademark owner Technicolor SA along with Digital Stream Technology Inc by unveiling a new line of portable TVs that are compatible with standard digital TV and Mobile DTV formats.

Note that these are actually TVs, not portable media players. They only play local broadcasts and unlikely to play downloaded content. The good side, however, is that these are more affordable.

The most inexpensive model, the DMT335R (on the upper left) has a suggested retail price of US$119 and features a 3.5-inch LED-backlit LCD with 320 x 240 resolution, hybrid DTV tuner, and a battery life of up to four hours. Meanwhile, the DMT336R (on the right) would cost $159, has an FM radio tuner and built-in rechargeable li-poly battery for a four-hour battery life. Finally, the DMT270R (on the lower left) would cost $179, has a 7-inch LCD screen with 800 x 480 resolution, as well as all the bells and whistles of the other models (except for the FM tuner).
