Sony Shrinks Bravia to Handheld TV

Sony is taking its Bravia TV technology, which is used in sets up to an impressive 70 inches, and shrinking it down into a device with a three-inch screen.

The new mini-Bravia, the XDV-D500, works with Japan’s mobile digital TV standard so users can watch standard broadcast channels for free, PCWorld reports. It also has a cool feature that lets users record programs by clicking on the electronic program guide, like with a standard DVR.

Unfortunately, the handheld Bravia will only be available in Japan. If you happen to be there, it goes on sale in April and will cost around $350.
