Watch, Surf, and Play with the RCA Mobile TV Tablet, Delivering Live TV Channels and Go-Anywhere Convenience

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, 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 managers 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.

Fully-Functional Tablet PC

In addition to its unique dual-tuner design 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 compatibility with the Google Play app store. The RCA 8-inch Mobile TV Tablet has a battery life up to four hours in mobile TV mode, or up to 10 hours when web browsing.
