The best TV is the one you can carry with you anywhere. Panasonic Japan has just announced the launch of two new Viera TVs designed to fit comfortably in the lap. Both have 10.1" screens and bring up a resolution of 1024x600. Electronista reports that both devices pack their own digital TV tuners.

The DMP-BV200 also sports an internal Blu-ray player, while the DMP-HV100 is the low-cost, entry-level model. Both TVs can play files from SDHC cards and from USB connected devices. These TVs support AVCHD, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, AVCHD and ISDBT. The BV200 can additionally handle DiVX, JPEGs, and MP3s.

Both televisions have 500mW speakers with a headphone jack. The BV200 has HDMI-out and lasts 3.5 hours on a charge. The HV100 lasts only 2 hours and 45 minutes. The BV200 is expected to cost around $1000, while the HV100 will set you back around $720. These players launch in Japan on April 23, and may be rolling out elsewhere soon after.
