Roughly the same size as a lighter (and with more than a passing resemblance to memory keys from a few years back), the U880 is – incredibly – a full featured TV Card. Check out the photos.

The 9 x 2.6 x 1.1cm “Stick” has a USB2.0 interface, is NTSC, PAL and SECAM compatible, timer records in MPEG1/2 and 4, can timeshift, captures single frames and works without any external power adaptor. For image enthusiasts, picture brightness, hue, saturation, contrast and sharpness can be customised for each TV channel.

Of course, you won’t have all the usual video and audio inputs/outputs that you would expect on a PCI or full size external TV card, but that’s hardly the point. What Compro has created is basically a television that you can fit into a wallet, which has got to be popular amongst the road warriors.
