MSI D310 portable Freeview player finally hits the UK

Personal video players

Back in April, we mentioned that the MSI D310 portable media player with integrated Freeview (the first to do so) would hit the shelves in "a couple of months" – in good time for the World Cup. Well, they missed that, but now it’s here – in good time for Christmas and cheaper than we expected.

The D310 is both small and light, weighing just 180g, so ideal to stick in your bag for a long journey or commute. It’s got a 4.2-inch colour TFT screen with an integrated Freeview receiver, so you can watch all the digital TV channels, reception permitting. There’s also an EPG, auto scanning, digital Teletext, a remote and AV out to a larger TV. It also supports music and video playback plus photos viewing. The downside is a lack of memory – so you’ll need to store on SD/MMC cards.

It’s got a rechargeable battery, with a charge offering 3 hours of digital TV. Available now, you can pick it up for a reasonable £119.
