LAS VEGAS (AP) - Consumers will have a wide array of gadgets to choose from this year that receive Mobile DTV, a new type of TV signal designed for portable TV sets and cell phones.

Audiovox Corp. is building receivers for those signals into its 7-inch and 9-inch RCA portable TV sets this year.

Valups, a Korean company, is making an antenna that plugs into the iPad’s connection port, turning it into a 9.7-inch inch portable TV.

Another Korean company, Cydle, makes an external battery for the iPhone that doubles as a Mobile DTV receiver.

There are also phones that can receive the signals without any add-ons, but no wireless carrier has committed to selling them.
