DirecTV Sat-Go Portable Receiver Seen on...TV

Here's early video of a Sat-Go, DirecTV's portable satellite receiver, as presented alongside an innocuous collection of grads' and dads' gadget gifts on NBC.


See it? Just fast-forward past the Carbon Fiber Zero Halliburton case, and a snowboarding jacket from Burton's Audex line. (In June? Nice timepeg, guy.)


Does it have to be THAT huge? How really 'portable' is this thing? Reminds me of days of yore with the 'laptops' that folded out of briefcases and weighted a metric ton! Course, it's still more portable than your home theater setup, but I don't think that thing is ready for prime time yet.... I'll take my Verizon V-Cast Mobile TV anyday over this...
