I’ve always subscribed to the "bigger is better" approach when it comes to television, but it’s not that easy to tote around the 60-incher. That would be sight to see though. ;) Anyway, LG has the right idea when it comes to T.V. on the go: their new Invision handset for AT&T is touted as the smallest phone that works with AT&T’s Mobile TV service. How small is this tele-flavored candybar? Try 4-inches tall by 2-inches wide and just under a half-inch thick.
Aside from the MobileTV capability with landscape screen and dedicated "TV" button, there’s nothing else dazzling here for power-users: 3G for data of course, AT&T Mobile Music functions, 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0 for hands-free calling, support for Napster To Go and XM Mobile Radio.
At $99 after $50 rebate and two-year agreement, this could very well meet the needs of people that like television and music in their pocket. I still prefer rolling my own mobile video service with Orb or a Slingbox, but I am intrigued by AT&T’s mobile television service… it might be time to reach out to AT&T for a short-term loaner and review. The service would really have to wow me to get my $13 to $30 a month for one of the three service packages.
