Sony XDV-100

Aiming to please commuters who may miss their favorite shows, Sony today launched its XDV-100 portable. The small device is just large enough to hold a 2.8-inch screen and tunes Japan's 1Seg digital TV broadcasts to let the viewer catch shows anywhere they can find good reception. The portable also sports an AM/FM tuner for radio and a TV programming guide to keep track of current and upcoming shows.

The handheld is due for release in its home country on April 10th at a price equal to $340. An American version will have to wait for a format similar to 1Seg before a possible launch.
