South Korea's LG Electronics Tuesday unveiled a new line of portable DVD players and cell phones with high-definition, digital TV capabilities aimed at tapping the United States mobile TV market.

The new devices, set to be released next year, will allow users to watch digital TV programs in vehicles running as fast as 290 km per hour, with the portable DVD player being the world's first commercial product with such features, LG said in a press release.

The release added the new products will be first showcased at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas from Jan. 7 to Jan.10.

LG said that it plans to release the mobile DVD player in the first half of next year and commercialize the new cell phone device as soon as possible in order to lock-in itself as a market leader in the United States mobile TV industry.

"These products will let LG lead the United States mobile TV market through advanced technology and product differentiation," Baek Woo-hyun, Chief Technical Officer (CTO) of LG Electronics, said in a statement.
