Boston Innovative Products has introduced its iMep line of iPod boomboxes. All three models offer the same features, including an integrated Dock Connector, 7-inch LCD screen, MP3-CD playback, integrated NTSC TV tuner, AM/FM tuner, RCA inputs, USB port and SD/MMC/MS memory card slot. The first device, the black MP-701-388, sports a front-mounted screen and uses a light-absorbing coating to reduce glare. The other two, the MP-702-388R and 388B feature a flip-up screen and come in red and black, respectively. All three models are priced at $300.

Uh, aren’t ALL devices capable of receiving a broadcast TV signal required to have an ATSC tuner these days?

Only for TV’s 25 inches or bigger. Next year, the rule applies to 13” or larger.

Either way, NTSC only means that the useful life of this unit as a TV is over in 2009 when the switch completes.

OOPS, that was changed since I last read the mandate. You are correct, ALL devices now must contain the ATSC tuner as of March of this year.
