TV on the go, and nothing else

Japan has new ultra-portable under 5 inches long

Akihabara News

In this age of convergence and the uber-device, you'd think everyone was clamoring for the digital Swiss Army knife that has become such a cliche. But some of us are purists when it comes to electronic entertainment--especially when it comes to television. Not that we watch tons of TV, of course; we at Crave are strictly PBS types (cough).

For those who can't live without the same Seinfeld reruns they've already seen hundreds of times, Japan-based BlueDot has a mini-TV that's under 5 inches long and less than half an inch thick, with a 4-inch screen. Electronista says the BTV-400 won't weigh down your pocket either, at just over 4 ounces, for about $247. It even has an electronic programming guide--the only problem is that it'll be in Japanese, at least for the time being, unless it gets exported.

The most remarkable feature of all? It's just a TV. Nothing else.
