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.
