The President of MediaFLO, Gina Lombardi, has revealed that the company is in trials with T-Mobile for its mobile TV service.

T-Mobile has not revealed the extent of the trials, nor have they announced which technology the they will ultimately choose for digital TV. T-Mobile has also been a test partner of DVB-H provider Modeo.
