This 20 inch set includes a handle for carrying and a kickstand so you can set it anywhere.

Your TV may be planted firmly in your living room, but what about when you're in your kitchen, bedroom, bathroom or even outside and you want to watch television? You might take a laptop for some Netflix or turn your TV so you can see it at an angle, but Sharp has a different idea.

The new Freestyle Aquos is a portable 20 inch television that's made to move all over your house. It has a built-in handle and a kickstand so you can stand it up wherever you need. Not a bad setup for staying entertained while doing the dishes.

Sharp's Freestyle comes packed with a wireless DTV tuner, Wi-Fi connectivity and DNLA compliance so you can even stream media from your home PC.

The set comes in at around $1,220 when it releases in Japan this June. There's no word on whether we'll see it stateside.
