AT&T Picks MediaFLO to Deliver Mobile Video
Feb 12, 2007, 4:19 PM by (staff)
AT&T signed an agreement to use Qualcomm's MediaFLO technology to deliver mobile video and TV services to wireless subscribers in the U.S. by late 2007. Like competitor Verizon Wireless, AT&T will offer mobile TV and some video-on-demand content from channels such as CBS, Comedy Central, Fox, MTV, and NBC directly on mobile phones. With many of Europe's GSM carriers picking the DVB-H mobile video standard, AT&T's new agreement with MediaFLO marks a different path for the nation's largest network operator, which will have to spend $1 billion to build a MediaFLO network. The operator will also have to work with its handset partners to incorporate Qualcomm's MediaFLO technology into future designs. Potential pricing information and other terms were not disclosed.
Build their own network?
Nice to FINALLY know!!!
I just hope that both WinMo6 and HTCs next version of the Cingular 8525 will support MediaFlo!!!!!! That's real important to me that the next version of the 8525 is JAMMED PACKED with sweet features, such as a 3.2mp cam, and 3.6mbps HSDPA, and damn it, more memory, for the $$$ that we spend on these SmartPhones, more internal memory please.
