I haven't seen any. Portable radios that could tune the audio portion
of VHF TV stations used to be a good standby source of information
during natural disasters, too, and those will no longer work.
Aside from cost issues, digital portable TVs represent an interesting
marketing problem. The public has been conditioned to think that
digital TV means HDTV. But supporting 1080i on a 10" diagonal display
would make no sense whatsoever.
