Panasonic Shows Portable TV With Wi-Fi, DLNA, Web Radio Support

Panasonic Japan today announced the SV-ME870 [JP], a portable, digital 7-inch VIERA TV. There are quite a few of these devices available in Japan, but this one is probably the “mobile TV” with the most features on board at this point.

Here are the main specs:

  • 7-inch LCD screen with 800×480 resolution
  • waterproof (protected against water immersion for 30 minutes at a depth of 1 meter)
  • 4GB internal memory (for recording TV shows)
  • Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11b/g
  • DLNA support
  • digital (web) radio support
  • YouTube connectivity
  • MP3/AAC/WMA and JPEG support
  • SD/SDHC/SDXC card slot, USB 2.0 port
  • 300mW×2ch stereo speakers
  • weight: 494g

Panasonic is planning to sell the SV-ME870 for around $500 but hasn’t set a release date yet. It looks like a cool device, but don’t expect it to be sold outside Japan anytime soon.
