RoverTv Mobile Media Player To Go

The RoverTv portable media player is by far one of the sexiest devices I’ve seen. It merely weighs 4.5 ounces and roughly the size of a deck of cards, making it extremely pocket-able. Cool features like record directly from TV, DVD, CD, FM or computer (supports Mac and PCs), RoverTv accommodates MP3, MP4, WAV files and more. Built-in software allows for easy transfer of video and music content to and from the device. There’s also a built-in FM radio receiver to listen and record FM radio. It’s ashame there’s no WiFi.
RoverTv took a different approach to storage by eliminating a hard drive all together. The company’s justification for going with a standard SD memory card is to allow you with an unlimited amount of memory, retaining a light and small form-factor, while making it a more durable product. The included 2 GB card allows for 4 hours of high quality video numerous JPEG/BMG/Gif photos, or 2800 songs. The rechargeable, integrated lithium ion battery lasts for a minimum of six hours of video viewing (two full-length movies and a couple of sitcoms).


The 4-inch color screen with 480 x 272 resolution cost $349 while the 3.5-inch runs for $299. RoverTv is available through Doghouse Electronics at
