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 hybrid free-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.
