Sony 4-inch BRAVIA LCD
Electronics giant Sony on Tuesday unveiled its newest BRAVIA TV for the Japanese market, the 4-inch XDV-W600. The portable TV can be taken to the bath thanks to its IPX7 and IPX6 waterproof rating, enabling it to withstand water depths up to 3.3 feet for up to 30 minutes. While in the bath or elsewhere, users can view content from its built-in 1Seg TV tuner or about 10 hours of content recorded onto its 2GB of internal memory as well as listen to FM radio programming.
Battery life, both from an internal battery and AA cells, is rated at 23 hours by Sony. The display is capable of 480x272-pixel resolution and supports 16.7 million colors.
The Sony BRAVIA XDV-W600 will be available in Japan on October 30, priced at an equivalent of about $368. [via Akihabara News]
