Wireless Tunes Into TV


TV is coming to a mobile phone near you. The trouble is finding things people actually want to watch on a mobile. MobiTV is covering a lot of bases, most recently the US election. The goal was to keep Americans, at least Sprint PCS Vision MobiTV subscribers, informed about the U.S. elections while on the go. With the results so close its easy to see why people would want to keep abreast of the action. It would be interesting to see if the service generated any phone calls. “Jenny! Did you hear? Bush is winning! Get down and vote!”
The election was also moblogged as people gathered evidence of voter intimidation and broken eVoting systems.
