Today, HTC, the global leader in Microsoft Windows Mobile-based devices, announced in 3GSM World Congress the world's first DAB-IP enabled Smartphone cooperating with BT and Virgin Mobile.
Regarding the Mobile TV, HTC said, Live mobile TV is set to become a reality. BT and Virgin Mobile will be the first mobile operator in Europe to sign up to broadcast digital TV and radio service for mobile phones leveraging HTC's latest device.
The announcement of the deal coincided with the unveiling of HTC's new handset which will screen the new TV service. The Trilogy is the world's first DAB-IP enabled Smartphone which was unveiled at the 3GSM World Congress 2006.
"Our partners demand products for Direct Push Email and Mobile TV that
give them the best competitive advantage to serve their customers. The
Mobile TV will provide our customers and end user brand new service and
bring new innovation for user experience and business development", says
Peter Chou, President of HTC.
Virgin Mobile will offer the broadcast service on a limited exclusive basis
to its customers later this year giving its customers access to a wide range of
digital TV content and more than 350 DAB digital radio stations nationwide
broadcasting twenty-four hours a day.
