Hannspree Mobi DVD Television

I have been obsessed with miniature televisions ever since I was little and saw a tv show about Lisa Marie Presley's dollhouse that had a teeny tiny but working tv in the living room. My first one was actually gigantic, but had a 2.5" black and white screen, in addition to a radio and cassette recorder. Actually, that tv came with me to college and still works, kept at my parents' house for emergencies when a battery-operated tv/radio might be necessary. It only needs like 48 D batteries to power up for 10 minutes. I did upgrade over the years, eventually to a 3" color LCD Sony Watchman that cost more than the biggest tv in the house. More recently, when portable DVD players were coming on to the market, I searched high and low for one that had a tv tuner built-in, but never found one that actually qualified as portable.

Hannspree, makers of the televisions shaped like animals or soccer balls, have finally made an affordable, portable LCD DVD TV which comes with a car-mountable antenna for travel, but also looks much nicer than the bulky kits for cars so you can use it at home as well. It has a 7" screen and the DVD player supports all manner of optical media (home recorded DVD-Rs, video and audio CDs, even CDs of mp3s). It comes with a cigarette lighter adapter, regular power adapter, rechargeable lithium-ion battery which provides 3.5 hours of playback, and a carrying case that can be converted into a car mount. And it weighs under 2 lbs. It's available now for $300 from Hannspree.
