Waterproof 1Seg TV player

The home division of Sanyo is nearing the release of a unique portable TV, the LVT-WD40. While it joins the increasing number of TVs that use the digital, Japanese-only 1Seg format, it is one of the few if only sets that is waterproof, although this is meant to guard against splashing in kitchens and bathrooms rather than allow submersion. Part of this is attributable to the external antenna, which does not conform to water-resistant standards.

The player is otherwise fairly conventional: it has a lithium-ion battery, an electronic program guide, and a four-inch screen capable of resolutions up to 480x272. It should be out on November 21st for 50,000 yen ($450). [via Impress Watch]
