Nokia launches mobile TV Receiver in a Sleek Headset

How about watching Live TV channels on the GO as you hear FM radio. Nokia have launched a awesome headset with TV receiver inbuilt. The receiver helps you to stream channels without 3G or WiFi connections.

Official Press Release from Nokia

The Nokia Mobile TV Headset, DVB-H, is all you need to turn your mobile device into a portable television. Anywhere there’s mobile DVB-H (Digital Video Broadband – Handset) coverage, you can tune into sports events or TV shows and watch them without worrying about an Internet connection. DVB-H is also kinder to your battery life than Web TV solutions.

The headset handles call reception and volume in a similar way to other mobile headsets, so you won’t miss calls while you’re watching the game. It also features keys for changing channels and music controls for the player on your handset. There’s an app called Mobile TV available for compatible handsets. It’s either pre-installed on compatible devices or it can be downloaded from the Ovi Store or www.nokia.com/support.

The Mobile TV Headset works with the forthcoming Nokia N8 and other Symbian^3 devices that come with the USB-on-the-go feature. It is expected to cost €40 before taxes and will appear in Q4 2010.

One word of caution. While it is expanding, DVB-H coverage is still patchy in many countries. Licensing issues and lack of frequency availability have stalled many projects, though there do appear to be working services in the Netherlands, Russia, New Delhi and Helsinki, for example. Check carefully with local dealers before you buy.
