I read with interest this morning an article from 3g.co.uk regarding another DVB-H trial, this time a city wide pilot in Stockholm, Sweden. The purpose of this trial is to ascertain the perceptions and feedback of the general public to mobile TV.
The handset of choice for the trial is the nokia N92. The mobile TV technology seems to be gathering pace across Europe and the Far East with trials and pilots taking place from Oxford Uk, to Hong Kong in China.
“We strongly believe in the capability of the DVB-H technology as well as in the mobile TV service, and we are looking forward to presenting the full potential and interest of broadcast mobile TV in Sweden,” says Sigurd Leth, Multimedia Director for Nokia Nordic.
