The United States might soon get to see the first of LG’s new innovative technology doing the rounds in the form of a Mobile DTV device. Christened DP570MH, the new LG Mobile DTV device has the capability to play movies on its 7-inch, 480×234 screen.

It may be recalled that LG had very recently let out a preview of the device in the form of a teaser. The company has now come out with more details. As per the info we came across, the DP570MH acts and performs much akin to a portable DVD player. Movies, which come alive on the 480×234 display, make the device a shopper’s dream. It LG has incorporated a tuner for the new mobile digital TV standard to pick up live TV. This is possible even when traveling at speeds, which by normal standards could prove a hindrance when it comes to picking up regular digital TV signals.

Looking for details on the pricing, we found that the company is most likely to attach a $249 price tag to the device. However, we are yet to know on when the launch would happen.

LG’s new DP570MH Mobile DTV device can also load JPEG photos and WMA audio when an USB port is plugged in. From what we understand, LG’s new device would initially only be able to play live broadcasts for about 2.5 hours when on battery power. If you are playing a DVD, the battery life might go on up to 4.5 hours. In case that worries you, the company is also providing along with the device a power adapter plus a car-friendly charger so that you can recharge the device while on the go.
