Toshiba charges up battery equipped LED TV

Aimed at nations with iffy power grids

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Toshiba has taken the wraps off what it claims is the world's first telly - a 32-incher - with a built-in battery.

The goal isn't portability - who's going to want to use a 40in, LED-backlit LCD TV outdoors? - but uninterrupted viewing. The Power TV, as it's called, is aimed at the Indian market where power blackouts are sufficiently common, presumably, that Toshiba sees a market for a telly that will continue to show a picture when the lights go out.

The Power TVs also boast an integrated signal booster that allows viewing in areas with weak signal strengths.

The Power TV family will launch with two battery fitted TVs: the 24in and 32in PC 1. ®
