Boasting a decent lineup of channels and the ability to access both live and time-shifted programming, the 3.5” Flo TV is certain to generate a great deal of interest.  The Flo TV mobile device measures 4.4 inches by 3 inches and is a mere half inch thick.  It uses a capacitive touch screen for channel surfing.  Disappointingly, the Flo TV does feature a 4:3 aspect ratio.

Springing for the $250 device, as well as a subscription to the service that runs around $10 a month, will get you television viewing anywhere you go.  That is, unless you foolishly live or travel outside of the coverage area.  Luckily this will only affect those customers that don’t live in Southern California, New England, or within 30 miles of a major city.

The unfortunate lack of nationwide coverage puts a bit of a damper on the idea of taking this on roadtrips.  A 5 hour battery life while watching the instant-on streaming television may be enough to sway consumers, especially those that live where coverage is good.  The lineup includes a fairly wide variety of programming for a mobile device, including the standard assortment of 24 hour news channels as well as Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Fox Mobile and NBC 2 Go.
