Xoro HSD 7500 offers portable DVD and Freeview viewing


Xoro have announced the HSD 7500, a portable/handheld Freeview TV and DVD player with a 7 inch LCD widescreen, resolution 480×234.

Its Freeview tuner is detachable, has auto-scan, EPG and Teletext. The DVD player is a slot-loading affair (smmooth) and the whole unit looks quite attractive. Xoro claim that the unit is unique because it has Freeview and DVD in one unit.

It has a built-in harness that allows it to be attached to the back of a car seat headrest. It can be powered from the supplied lithium battery, AC mains or car adapter.

It also has a built in card reader, so you could probably use it to display photos stored on a digital camera card, and a USB port.

It has both video in and out, so could be used as a Freeview tuner for your home TV, and display video from other sources like a camera. There’s a supplied internal aerial, too, which could provide mixed results, and a remote control unit.

I think it’s available now, or at least very soon, retailing at around £200.
