Samsung Announces World's First GSM TV Phone (Phone Scoop)
Phonescoop says that Samsung has released a new GSM phone complete with a TV tuner included. Sounds like something of a gimmick. I’m reminded of the hype surrounding handheld TVs many years ago. A bunch of people bought them and showed them off to their friends, and then realized they didn’t want to watch TV on such a tiny screen. However, it will be interesting to see if this ends up “competing” in some ways with video content sent to the phone – especially since that’s supposed to be a “driver” for 3G adoption. Now, who’s going to build the TiVo for this mobile phone?
