Topstar and Telegent have worked together to unveil a new netbook and all-in-one PC at Computex with a feature not previously seen in either class. The two firms have offered new designs that integrate an embedded hybridfree-to-air TV tuner into the designs.
The companies say that the two machines will be in mass production later this year and are targeted at overseas markets. Considering the two companies are foreign, I would assume overseas means the US. The all-in-one PC has an 18-inch screen and is optimized to deliver TV content.
The Hybrid TV feature supports a DVB-T tuner along with worldwide analog broadcast TV standards. That means that the tuner will work after the digital transition this month. The designs use the Telegent TLG2300 tuner offering TV and FM radio in one package.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
