Vizio Enters Mobile TV Market, Introduces Three Products

Vizio Mobile TV

Mobile TV is finally coming to the United States and Vizio is determined to dominate this new market by introducing not one, but three new handheld LED devices.  These three new Razor LED models are measured less than one inch of thickness and can operate on both NTSC and ATSC mobile/ handheld platforms.

The Vizio VMB070 (pictured) has a seven-inch LED backlit screen with 800 x 480 resolution and 250 nits of brightness power.  Its sleek design contains no obvious buttons, but the touch-sensitive controls light up when it senses the user’s hand approaching.  It also has a flush antenna that can be propped up for better reception, an auxiliary audio and video inputs for use with a DVD player, and a headphone jack for a more private listening.  Battery life can last for up to three hours.

Meanwhile, the nine-inch Vizio VMB090 and 10.2-inch VMB100 can also receive broadcast signals through a newly-developed ATSC-MH format.  Both of its LED LCD panels have a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels and a brightness level of 350 nits.  Like the VMB070, they have touch-sensitive controls that go well with the sleek design.  They also have an extendable internal antenna, HDMI 1.4 jack apart from the video and stereo audio inputs, a USB 2.0 port, and a headphone jack.

The Vizio mobile TV devices will be available within this year, with the 7-inch version costing US$149, the 9-inch version at $199, and the 10-inch version will go for $229.
