Expect to see it in the Tungsten T-71 or at the latest, T-75.

God, Gekko, you're so dense sometimes. It'll be the *TV*.

Expect to see this on a palmOne in about 10 years time.

Should see wireless on a palmOne in about 3 years.

TV on a T5 would crush it.

DVB is free to air (in Europe) so as long as you have the hardware you can receive the video stream from an antenna.

Its about time some news regarding mobile DVB is here. I have DVB access on my PC for the past 1 1/2 years (via my WinTV Nova-T PCI card) and the quality is amazing. Videos are broadcast in mpeg2 (same as DVD).

Digital cable TV here is MPEG2 also, and sometimes I long for the days of **100% ANALOG**. The compression gets so bad, you'd throw your *PC* out the window if it displayed things that bad!

Nothing like the opening underwater shots of, say, DAS BOOT, looking like 4-bit GIFs!

I think that is a common problem for all things digital - its either damn good or damn bad. There is no in between like analog. But I believe just like in the early days of GSM when the reception was so darn poor things will only improve. Who here still use AMPS?

Shipping w/Foldaway Manifying Glass?

OMG! I just trashed a Casio TV that had a 2.5" screen. Couldn't see the football (let alone the golf balls) during sporting events, and don't even try to read the text on news shows. This may be fine for some of the larger screened PDA's, but most of the phones that are reasonably portable just don't have the screen size for pratical use of TV, IMO. But then again, if the phones shipped with a Fold-away Magnifier . . .
