We've seen bits and pieces of Qualcomm's FLO live TV service, curiously even on an iPhone, but at MWC it'll be showing it off on Snapdragon-powered smartbooks. It enables real-time updates via Twitter while watching live TV.
Back in November we saw FLO TV running on the iPhone and weren't sure what to make of it. Their partnership with Mophie makes it perfectly clear: new packs will bring live TV and extra juice to iPhones.
I get that this Flo TV iPhone demo is just a proof of concept. That's fine! I'm just a little confused as to what the concept is.
Today in Now Available: the Sonos ZonePlayer S5, a wireless speaker system controlled by the iPhone and iPod Touch; the Yamaha MCR-140 wireless iPod dock; the Lenovo U150 ultraportable laptop, and the game-changing FLO TV.
If you want to watch "CBS Mobile, CNBC, CNN Mobile, COMEDY CENTRAL, ESPN Mobile TV, FOX Mobile, FOX News, MSNBC, MTV, NBC 2Go, Nickelodeon and the movie channel Crackle", that's now $10 on AT&T phones that support FLO TV. Well, not RIGHT NOW. We mean starting November 8th.
The era of the PDA is gone, but what about a PTV (Personal Television Device)? Qualcomm is said to be working on an unconfirmed iPhone size-device without the streaming video restrictions; it will broadcast the company's mobile FLO TV.
