Sony, Ericsson aim for TV on mobiles by 2008

Recommended Posts

Pranjal

 

While Sony's been dealing with exploding batteries, PS3 craziness and now a recall for some Cyber-shot cams, the Japanese behemoth's handset division is trying to expand into the mobile television sector by partnering with Ericsson. Already the two form a significant presence in cellphones with the Sony Ericsson brand, and they hope to continue that with television as well. Per Nordlof, Ericsson's director of Product Strategy, said at a press conference in Stockholm on Thursday that a third of the world's mobile phone users will be watching TV on their handsets on a regular basis by 2008 -- something the folks at Qualcomm and others are thinking, too, with MediaFLO and the like. According to The Associated Press, the corporate duo is also working on a way to send clips from your living room's TV directly to a handset. Of course, if you don't want to wait until 2008, you could just buy a Slingbox or a Sony LVTV Box right now for the same effect.

Sorry for the bump, but I couldn't help but reply. Me being a mobile freak and all blush.gif ... There's already TV on mobiles, Via a technology called EDGE. it's basically another type of connection like GPRS, 3G and Wifi. It's fast enough to stream TV

Never believe a moron who can sell you the idea that real time TV/on demand TV can be sent thru EDGE or for that matter any other technology on mobile - atleast as of now ! It might be possible with 3G(UMTS)/Wi-Max, but its extremely futuristic, as real time video is an extremely vast amount of data and supporting the entire thing on the mobile air interface is something that is very difficult although not impossible....what might be possible thru EDGE is non-real time or non-on demand videos !

They do stream real time Tv here via edge. With a bit of a delay yes. But it's the same as streaming TV over the internet without having a tv tuner card or anything
