Toshiba REGZA SD-P96DT & SD-P76S keep the portable DVD player lights burning

Nov 24, 2010

Toshiba has outed a new pair of portable DVD players, the 9-inch REGZA SD-P96DT and 7-inch REGZA SD-P76S, though they've at least slotted a TV tuner into the larger model to give it at least a vague air of modernism. The SD-P96DT runs at 800 x 480 resolution and has both 1-Seg digital and analog tuners, while the SD-P76S makes do with a 480 x 234 display and no tuners at all.

Still, you can get the smaller model in a variety of colors - white, pink, blue and green - though you only get half the battery life: 3hrs, versus the 6hrs of the SD-P96DT. Each has an SD/SDHC memory card slot, and can play DivX video, MP3/WMA music files and JPEG images from either a card or a DVD.

Toshiba will throw in a 12V adapter for in-car use, an A/V output cable and a remote control, while the larger version gets external antennas for the tuners. No word on pricing at this stage, but the REGZA SD-P96DT is expected to drop in Japan in early December, while the REGZA SD-P76S will follow on midway through the month.
