Cingular has partnered with MobiTV to offer its subscribers streaming video content of news, sports and more. Initially the service will be available to users of the Nokia 6620 smartphone as well as the Motorola RAZR, V220 and V180. Cingular expects to add support for Motorola V400 and V600 users shortly, as MobiTV already supports them. The service will cost $9.99 per month, however Cingular will offer a 3 day free trial. MobiTV offers a "high framerate experience" for Nokia 6620 users, but Motorola handsets can expect 1-2 frames per second using the company's Java applet on Cingular's GPRS network.

Can anyone confirm this?

And yesterday Verizon confirmed that Cingular is now Number-One in customer growth across America - more customers chose Cingular than Verizon last quarter!

Just saw Verizon's EVDO streaming video and....

Flawless, the LG VX8000 should be launched on Feb 1st. I already have one, but the Vcast has not launched yet so I can't use Vcast till the 1st. I did see a preview of it today from my corporate VZW rep. it was awesome, 15 frames per second and the buffering speed was awsome. I only watched like 5 min of "the best damn sports show" and a couple skating and skiing clips, but they were all flawless with no lag time once it's buffered. It also includes mobile web and it runs faster also. Unlimited Vcast and mobile Web for only $15, no more being board at the DMV or Airport, etc.. lol Cool

Wonder how it will stack up against Sprint's service...
sucks that the moto phones have such a slow frame rate.
