Bluedot Mobile TV Viewer

Bluedot today used the close of 2006 to reveal its BTV-400K media player. The company has focused the 4-inch widescreen handheld solely on tuning Japan's 1Seg digital mobile TV broadcasts; its single-purposed nature simplifies the controls and slims the device down, according to Bluedot, which measures the system at only 11mm (0.43 inches) thick. Support for an electronic program guide allows the BTV-400K's owner to see programming in advance and switch channels accordingly. Battery life is rated at three hours and can recharge just as quickly through either an AC outlet or a computer's USB port. The company expects an official launch in early February for $254.
