FLO TV Launches its Own Digital Handheld TV

Qualcomm's FLO TV subsidiary unveiled its own FLO TV Personal Television -- a new dedicated device that will let consumers watch news, live sports, children's programming and entertainment on a dedicated device for mobile TV viewing.

The FLO TV Personal Television, which will be available for purchase this holiday season, will offer a subscription service starting at $8.99 per month with a 3 year contract. The device will be offered at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $249.99. It has a 3.5-inch diagonal screen and measures 4.4 inches by 3 inches by .5 inches and weighs just over 5 ounces.
