Toshiba charges up battery equipped LED TV
Aimed at nations with iffy power grids
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. ®
It's not made by Apple
Of course they will be user-replaceable
Also useful in the UK
but I wont give it the usual rant aoub our infrastructure.
Hopefully the batteries will be user-changeable when they need replacement, and not overly expensive.
