Sinclair sought for many years to create a truly pocketable television. Although he made significant advances towards this goal in the 1960s and 1970s, it was not until 1984 that the technology (and his own resources) had developed sufficiently for him to succeed.

Sinclair's Microvision and TV80 (aka FTV) sold modestly well, shifting several tens of thousands of units. Because of this, Sinclair pocket TVs are not too difficult to find today.
