    When are the larger screen portable DVD players coming out in the US? Sharp has a 8.7" one that came out in June in Japan but there's no mention of a US release.
    I currently have the Panasonic LV75 but 7" is just too small! I was looking to get one of the 8" players but they are so big and bulky.
    The new Sharp 8.7" supposedly weighs less than a pound, really small, and more than a million pixels, and has a TV tuner. Damnit, I want this!! Anyone know when it's coming out in the states (or other new generation players like this one)?

    I saw a 9" Panasonic listed on OneCall and Crutchfield web sites. It's DVD-Audio capable. No mention of the tuner though.

    Wow, the new Panasonic 9" looks cool. When did this come out? I wasn't even aware of it. It's a bit heavy (2.2 lbs compared to Sharp's 8.7" which is less than 1 poud) but it's still good. Any reviews of this so far? Does anyone know the cheapest place I can get this?
