Philips Tablet DVD Players: Details, Details, Details

Turns out the promise they showed back in November mostly holds up, as we were fairly impressed with the PET line of tablet DVD players Philips showed us. Besides looking great, they have DVD+/-RW, VCD, MP3/WMA-CD, CD and CD-RW music playback, as well as a USB port for uploading and displaying images. Best of all is the price, with the 8.5-inch 830 model running $199 and the 10.2-inch 1030 model at $279. The battery life is disappointing though, with a measly three hours for the 830 and five hours for the 1030. Both drop this quarter.
