Nokia To Announce Lower Cost Mobile TV Phone
Feb 7, 2007, 11:19 PM by (staff)
Nokia will likely launch a new lower-cost mobile TV capable handset at 3GSM next week. The N77, a new addition to the Nseries, is set to be a lower cost DVB-H handset than Nokia's first effort, the N92. Although there have been mid-range mobile TV handsets from other manufacturers, this will be Nokia's first. It is expected to sell for between 250-400 dollars. DVB-H is gaining popularity as the mobile TV standard of choice across most of Europe and Asia, but indications are that most American carriers are leaning towards MediaFLO. Unless a carrier decides to partner with one of the two emerging DVB-H networks in America, it is unlikely this handset is destined for our shores.
