Watch, Surf, and Play with the RCA Mobile TV Tablet, Delivering Live TV Channels and Go-Anywhere Convenience
LAS VEGAS & NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--
The worlds of TV viewing and handheld computing come together in the new
RCA Mobile TV Tablet (Model DDA850R) introduced next week at the
International CES as the electronics industry's first dual-tuner mobile
TV. This device will include a standard over-the-air DTV tuner, along
with a mobile TV tuner that is compatible with Dyle™ mobile TV, a
service that enables consumers to watch live, local TV while they are on
the go. The RCA Mobile TV Tablet is the first tablet device to feature
an integrated mobile TV tuner with Dyle mobile TV, offering viewers
on-the-go access to 130 mobile TV stations throughout the country. With
a stunning 8-inch screen, the RCA Mobile TV Tablet is both a portable TV
set and a fully functional high-definition Android touchscreen tablet
with Wi-Fi, dual cameras, and GPS functionality.

"The addition of both stationary and mobile TV capability in a tablet
receiver means that viewers will never be out of touch with the latest
news, weather, sports, and favorite channels. Our new RCA Mobile TV
Tablet includes a telescoping antenna to receive regular digital TV
channels when you're not moving, and mobile TV when life keeps you busy
and on the move. Mobile TV from Dyle is ideal for keeping up with local
broadcasts when on-the-go," Chris Lee (News - Alert), Vice President of Marketing for
Digital Stream. "Research consistently shows that consumers who try
mobile TV not only watch television with greater frequency, but they
also enjoy catching up on the latest information wherever they go.
Reaction to our first generation of standalone Mobile DTV receivers has
been very positive, and we look forward to more widespread and more
advanced services made possible by the addition of this Mobile TV Tablet
to the RCA product portfolio."
"The rapid advancement of mobile TV technology is giving consumers
unparalleled flexibility in how they watch TV and our integration with
DST offers yet another way to view TV while they're on-the-go," said
Salil Dalvi and Erik Moreno, co-general mangers of Mobile Content
Venture (MCV). "This is another great example of executing against our
broader go-to-market strategy and commitment to delivering great,
user-friendly technology to users everywhere."
As the first tablet enabled with both an ATSC Mobile DTV tuner and
Dyle mobile TV, the RCA Mobile TV Tablet is ideal for virtually any
viewing environment - from the kitchen countertop to the back seat of a
car. Dyle is now on-the-air in more than 35 markets, delivering popular
network TV shows and local news. The RCA Mobile TV Tablet also receives
mobile digital TV channels from broadcasters not affiliated with Dyle.
Other TV functions built into the device creating a one of a kind
viewing experience include real-time signal strength display, on-screen
program information display and digital closed captioning. Additionally,
features like language settings, auto channel scan and a favorite
channel setting enable the consumer to take the RCA Mobile TV Tablet and
personalize the device to fit their needs.

Android tablet featuring a Cortex A5 1GHz processor, 1GB of RAM (News - Alert), and 8GB

for reception of standard and mobile TV broadcasts (with built-in
telescoping antenna), the RCA Mobile TV Tablet includes cameras on the
front and rear of the tablet, twin speakers, integrated GPS, and USB,
MicroUSB, MicroSD, and HDMI connectivity. Weighing only 1.4 pounds, the
DMT580D also includes built-in Wi-Fi, a Google search browser, and
