MSI shows off handheld Freeview box

Personal video players

Ideal for watching on the big screen or taking with you if you get called away, Taiwan’s MSI has announced a portable media player that incorporates its own Freeview digital TV receiver – a world first it claims.

The D310 has a 4.2-inch display, built-in speaker and a built-in antenna that’s ready to pick up DVB-T signals, teletext and electronic programme guide data. It measures 12.9 x 8.2 x 1.6cm and weighs 180g, which includes the non-removable 2300mAh battery, which MSI reckons will support three hours’ TV viewing or five hours’ operation as an MP3 player.

It’ll also play MPEG 4 videos and display photos in JPEG format too, but with only 1MB of built-in memory, you’ll have to play it via MMC or SD card. With a remote control and a pair of earphones, expect to see it on the shelves in the next couple of months for around £154.
