G-force's tiny 1Seg video recorder


Japan is currently flooding with 1seg mobile digital TV tuners after rolling out the service some 6 months ago. Most external tuners ship as USB sticks for watching TV on the go from your laptop. The G-force G-WWT-1201B 1seg tuner, however, is meant to be connected your portable DVD player or any other display with composite input. What's a bit novel here, is that this tuner also boasts 512MB of flash for recording 2 to 3 hours of highly compressed video. Just about right since you'll only get about 3 hours off rechargeables anyway. Expected to hit Japan tomorrow for ¥26,040 (about $220).
