Evesham wants you to watch a little TV

Small and light enough, but do we really need one?

Most of the major TV makers seem determined to create flat screens of Godzillan proportions, but Evesham has apparently decided to zig where others zag with its latest offering. The U.K. company's TV-930 doesn't have the smallest LCD--9.2 inches--but it weighs less than 1kg (around 2 pounds). It also manages to integrate speakers into its modest frame, which Pocket-lint says can be connected to a DVD player, camera or game console.

The lightweight portability could make some sense if one needed to move the TV around the house regularly. If not, we can't understand why someone would want to pay 120 pounds (about $237) for this set, especially now that laptop TV tuners are available for much less. We do admit, however, that it's better than going blind trying to watch a 1.5-inch wristwatch TV.
