Korean handset giants LG Electronics and Samsung simultaneously announced they have developed the first handset models based on the DVB-H and Media FLO mobile broadcasting standards.
LG will unveil its DVB-H and Media FLO (forward link only) phones at the CES this week. LG said that unlike the existing DVB-H terminals based on Smart Phone technology, its handset model receives QVGA-level DVB-H broadcasting content.
Samsung said that it has developed its own Media FLO phones, also based on the CDMA 2000 1X EV-DO technology, and will demonstrate them at CES. Samsung claims that it has completed developing its mobile handset line-up geared to all broadcasting standards.
