Posted Jan 24, 2013

RCA Corporation has launched a new dual-tuner 8″ device called the Mobile TV Tablet known as Model DDA850R.  The RCA Mobile TV Tablet includes a standard over-the-air DTV tuner, a Mobile TV tuner that is compatible with Dyle mobile TV.  Dyle mobile TV is a service that lets consumers watch live and local TV when they are on the go.  The RCA Mobile TV Tablet has WiFi, 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,? stated RCA VP of Marketing for Digital Stream Chris Lee. ?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.?
