More TV Phones

First Samsung, then Sony, and now Nokia. Nokia has announced that one of their latest phones will include a TV tuner. While it sounds cool from a gadget perspective, I still wonder about the size of the market. There used to be portable TVs, but that market dried up pretty quickly when people realized they weren’t that interested. At the same time, you have to wonder how such offerings will impact video content that people are trying to sell over the phone. Will free TV compete with fee-based downloads?
