Meet the first Android tablet with a TV tuner built in!
Electronics manufacturer RCA is bringing the first ever tablet with a built-in TV tuner to the masses this spring, with the RCA Mobile TV Tablet. Who needs internet video streaming when you’ve got the real thing?
Toting both a standard over-the-air digital TV tuner, alongside a mobile TV tuner the 8-inch, Android powered tablet will be shown off at CES in Las Vegas next week. With a telescopic, pull-out antenna, the tablet could be a great gadget to keep up with your television shows on the move where there’s no Wi-Fi or poor data speeds, so long as you don’t prod yourself in the eye with it.
The tablet sports a 1024×768 resolution touchscreen, along with Wi-Fi, dual cameras and GPS functionality built-in. It’s all powered by a Cortex A5 1GHz processor that’s more than capable of pushing broadcasts to you, alongside 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage space, and HDMI connectivity to get programmes on the big screen.
