Of all the companies that we were certain would be producing tablets at CES 2013, RCA was most certainly not in that group. Nevertheless, that's one of the companies that is indeed introducing a tablet in Las Vegas this year, with the Mobile TV Tablet (Model DDA850R) breaking into the market. It's actually a pretty unique twist on the conventional tablet. It's an 8" unit that claims to be the first in the industry to offer twin tuners inside. It includes a standard over-the-air DTV tuner, along with a mobile TV tuner that is compatible with Dyle mobile TV, a service that enables consumers to watch live, local TV while they are on the go. The RCA Mobile TV Tablet is the first tablet device to feature an integrated mobile TV tuner with Dyle mobile TV, offering viewers on-the-go access to 130 mobile TV stations throughout the country.

The screen itself has a 1024x768 screen resolution (IPS panel), and other specs include 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, integrated GPS, front and rear cameras, microSD slot, HDMI support, USB, and a frame that weighs 1.4 lbs. Yes, Android is onboard, so you'll also get access to the Google Play store. Reportedly, the battery can last through four hours of TV viewing, or up to 10 hours when used as a conventional tablet. The price? $299, and it'll ship this Spring.
