Japanese Pixela announces a portable TV that can receive Japanese terrestrial digital TV, Audio and FM radio.

The device has the shape of a large candy-stick mobile phone (136.5mm×55mm×25.5mm). It even receives 5.1 channel audio for surround, but who cares, if it is not also a mobile phone. Users do not want to carry around a mobile phone and this thing to watch TV. They watch TV on the mobile phone. There are mobile phones (e.g: FOMA P901iTV) that feature that. Maybe Pixela just wants to demo their technology to find a mobile phone maker to integrate their stuff.
Japanese broadcasters will start mobile digital broadcasting in April 2006. Many devices are aimed to be released till then.Maybe Pixela just wants to demo their technology to find a mobile phone maker to integrate their stuff.
