Still, trials in Germany by Nokia and Vodafone showed 80
percent of consumers want TV services on their mobiles and
are willing to pay 12 euros ($NZ21.80) a month extra for it.



What about USA Cell Phone users and Cell Phone TV?

Please stop calling it "cell phone TV", because there is zero interest
in that. There might be a *lot* of interest in "cell phone video", but
it's not the same thing.

And I think it is just the opposite. People will have less interest in
cell phone video as envisioned by Nokia and Qualcomm and more interest
in cell phone DTV which is also coming. True DTV of what people are
already familiar with will draw 90% + interest. The problem with these
new ventures is they may be too in love with the technology and not in
what people will actually want. People want good content and they want
what they are already familiar with IMO.

To the extent they can cache content and therefore deliver on demand
this will be very interesting. Large capacity storage and fuel cells are
coming to your cell phone.

2: a receiver that displays television images; "the British
call a tv set a telly"

and

A dedicated push media device for receiving
streaming video and audio, either by terrestrial radio
broadcast, satellite or cable.
