    We got the high-level from Samsung at the press event,but now we've got the skinny on those DirecTV set-top boxes that were briefly mentioned. Turns out that the devil's in the details as Samsung announced a DirecTV receiver with an integrated 10.2-inch screen. Surprise! These little guys are dubbed the "DIRECTV Fliptops" and they're exclusive to Sammy. Integrated 10-watt speaker pop out the audio for any of 250-odd channels you can see on the three-day Electronic Programming Guide. Watch for the little flippers in March for $499 list.

    Why would anyone want to buy a DirecTV only device, when they could buy a SlingBox or a Sony LocationFree TV with a Tablet PC or Laptop. IMHO, this is a total waste of money and development time.

    Primarily it's because he chose to post it here. If you have a problem with it report it to a moderator, don't try to act like one.

    In a box.
    Is this a small "portable" TV that needs a costant coax connection or does it "share" previously recorded content?
