Modeo’s Mobile TV Phone Gets Approval From FCC; Rollout Anytime Soon?

Modeo, the U.S. mobile TV subsidiary of Crown Castle International (which uses the DVB-H standard) has got an approval from FCC for its HTC-built Pocket PC TV phone…Modeo pilot tested a DVB-H mobile broadcast network in Pittsburgh last year and plans to officially launch service in select major U.S. markets, including NYC before the end of year, with nationwide deployment for the top 30 U.S. markets targeted for 2007.
I would expect some mobile TV announcements from the companies in the space at CTIA coming up (from MediaFlo, Modeo, HiWire and the companies they are working with) but to expect somethig to rollout this year is ambitious.
