Nothing makes an interminable plane ride longer than a bad inflight movie. A palm-size solution is now available in the form of Panasonic’s new DVD L10 digital video player, better known as the PalmTheater. Flyers can bring slender movie discs aboard and watch them on the 5.8-inch color LCD monitor, listening to the virtual surround sound through built-in stereo speakers or headphones.

The rechargeable battery pack lasts two hours, and the unit weighs two pounds without the battery. Its full dimensions are about six and a half inches square by about two inches wide.

The PalmTheater retails for $1,399.95 and is available at major electronics stores. For more information, contact Panasonic at (888) 726-2383 or visit the company’s Web site (
