The handbag TV needs no introduction

Hannspree does it again.

We've speculated before about LCDs possibly needing to find their way into different products as next-generation TVs loom with newer screen technologies, but this isn't exactly what we were thinking. Then again, if any company was going to make a purse TV, it would be Hannspree .

This is the company, you may recall, that's made a living out of creating TVs in the form of toys, basketballs, giant fruit , and countless other objects. So this handbag LCD doesn't seem especially weird in that context, with a 9.6-inch display, a handle that actually works, and even a genuine leather case. "Sophisticated style that will appeal to any woman that demands tasteful and unique decoration," as Shiny Shiny notes, sneeringly. And for you macho types, remember, in Europe men carry handbags all the time.
