Sanyo To Release Waterproof, Portable TV
Sanyo will be releasing a waterproof, portable TV, model LVT-WD40, in Japan on November 21. The widescreen-format portable features 480x272 pixel resolution and EPG display via a built-in antennae, which from the Japanese-to-English translation I was able to discern is not waterproof. I'm not sure how that works. The display is waterproof, but the antennae pulling in the video content isn't. I'm hoping the translation is off on this one. The portable uses a lithium ion battery for power with a life at standard screen brightness of about 6 hours. While you're charging it, you can also use an AC adapter as your power source. We don't recommend using the adapter in the shower however. All in all, this portable which will retail in Japan for 50000 yen or $450 US seems a little flawed, not to mention dangerous.
