RCR Wireless News claims AT&T will launch their own mobile TV service as early as February 5, and the 3G, touchscreen LG Vu (better known as the LG Prada) will be the first phone to support the service. The service will use the same Qualcomm MediaFLO backbone as the Verizon V Cast TV video service, which currently offers eight live broadcast channels. However, the AT&T service will have two exclusive channels (Verizon currently has no exclusives). The Vu is expected to sell for $200. [RCR Wireless via Crave]
I purchase the Vu last week. It is a great phone. Price is in the 300.00
dollar range with a 100.00 mail in rebate. T.V is clear and sharp. Touch
screen works great. Only thing is if you purchase the cover and you want
to use the scroll bar it is hard to scroll it up and down because the
cover is in the way. I use a pen (closed of course) and it works great.
I like it!!
