RCA to set to debut an Android tablet at CES that is unlike any other before it. It’s called the RCA Mobile TV Tablet and it will allow you to watch over-the-air broadcasts all over the United States. The tablet comes with a built-in DTV tuner and a mobile TV tuner that provides channels in areas supported by the Dyle mobile TV service.

The two tuners serve different purposes. The DTV tuner is best used when you’re more or less stationary. You have to extend the antenna and move it around to get the best signal. When you’re traveling, you may have to rely on Dyle mobile TV. This service sends TV signals from towers around the United States, and can only be accessed through the Dyle Mobile TV app. You’ll be able to watch live television from networks such as Fox, CBS, ABC, Qubo, Telemundo and Univision. Some of the cities that support Dyle include Atlanta, Cleveland, Portland, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston and Chicago. Dyle TV does not consume data usage at all.

The RCA TV Tablet is regular tablet as well. It has a 8-inch 1024×768 IPS display, 1GB of RAM, a 1Ghz Cortex A5 processor, GPS, 8GB of expandable storage, HDMI and USB ports and two cameras. All this will cost you $299 at some point this spring.
