Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (DMB) has been in the pipeline
for a while now and soon video broadcasts to mobile phones might be a reality
to Korean mobile users as Samsung begins field-testing their new technology
later in the year.
The Samsung SCH-B200
DMB handset has the new swivel screen feature and packs all the peripherals one
could wish for: 2 megapixel camera, MP3 and MPEG4 playback, 260k LCD 2.2 inch
screen, battery life that supports over 3 hours video playback and upgradeable
Although the Korean
version uses satellite technology, a European model is also in the making; the SCH-B1200
will use terrestrial transmissions instead. There is no official line yet on
when it will arrive here or how much it will cost.
