Insignia drops first portable HDTV on US shelves

Insignia Portable HDTV

Best Buy's in-house brand Insignia today shipped out the NS-7HTV, the first known portable TV in North America with an ATSC tuner for picking up over-the-air HD broadcasts. While its resolution is limited to 480x234, the 7-inch screen manages the native 16:9 aspect ratio of HDTV content. Viewers can also tune into analog NTSC shows before the 2009 cutoff period and use the screen as a portable display for game consoles and DVD players through either RCA or RF jacks.

Intended as a TV for vacations rather than a completely mobile set, the 7HTV is bundled with a car adapter for viewing in mid-trip as well as an AC adapter for the final destination. A remote is similarly included at the $200 asking price. Best Buy already claims to have the TV in stock. [via Engadget]

    Not HD

    This isn't an HD set. It's a digital, widescreen TV.
