Microvision

On January 10, 1977, Sinclair Radionics Ltd. announced its production of a television set that measured 4x6x1.625 inches, including a 2-inch screen, and weighed 28 ounces. The Microvision used the smallest cathode ray tube built into a commercially available product, and was the first-ever multi-standard receiver, which meant that it could be used in nearly every foreign country as long as the country used one of the three major TV standards.

On February 19, 1981, Sinclair unveiled the Microvision 2700, which went on sale in 1982 with a list price of about $125.
