Taiwan's MSI has announced a portable media player that incorporates its own Freeview digital TV receiver - a world first, the company claims. The D310 has a 4.2in display. The antenna's built in and ready to pick up DVB-T signals, teletext and electronic programme guide data.

The unit measures 12.9 x 8.2 x 1.6cm and weighs 180g, including the non-removable 2300mAh battery - sufficient, MSI claims, for three hours' TV viewing or five hours' operation as an MP3 player. It'll play MPEG 4 videos and display JPEG photos too, but for all this recorded content you'll need an MMC or SD card to extend the 1MB of built-in Flash memory.

MSI plans to bundle a remote control and a pair of earphones with the D310, though it has a built-in speaker. It also has an AV port to allow you to hook it up to a TV.

The D310 is due to ship in Europe next month for around €222 ($274/£154). ®
