With the transition to DTV not yet a year old, you probably haven't invested in a new portable DTV that pulls in over-the-air digital signals. Good news! You can now win one--a new 9-inch Philips PVD900/37 portable DTV--in our Crave giveaway of the week.
While the wide-screen PVD900 doesn't have HD resolution--it offers 600x220-pixel resolution--you can view HD stations. Its other features include a built-in QAM tuner for receiving unscrambled digital cable stations (yes, you can hook this up to a cable connection in your home) and up to 3 hours of battery life from a single charge. If you're hoping that this works in a moving vehicle, sorry, these guys aren't designed for that; however, you can tailgate with the PVD900 in a parking lot.
Normally, Philips PVD900 would cost about $150, but you have the chance to get it gratis.
