Some folks don't mind watching TV or video on their smartphone when they are not at home and have time to kill. Other people don't want to watch video content unless the screen is larger and can be easily viewed. Vizio is one of the most popular TV makers in the US and the company has announced its new portable TV is now shipping.
The TV set was first unveiled back during CES in January and is just now available to buy. The TV is called the VMB070 and it has a 7-inch edge lit LED backlit screen. The screen has a resolution of 800 x 480 and the set is under an inch thick. The TV measures 7.48" x 4.94" x 0.90" and it weighs a pound without its stand.
Other features include a fold down antenna, 500:1 contrast ratio, and the screen is rated for 250 nits brightness. The set can be used as a digital photo frame with images displayed from a directly connected USB drive. The set also has a RF connector for watching cable and an internal rechargeable battery good for 3.5 hours of use. The set can be purchased now for $159.99.
