Props for the Mobile DTV alliance, formed by bigwigs including Nokia, Intel Corp., Motorola, Texas Instruments and Modeo. Looks like we won't have to wait as long as we may have thought for good DVB-H, mobile TV technology in the states. I know I've been experiencing some TV envy lately after watching Europe and Asia get cool shows on their cellphones, so this alliance is aiming at creating open standards for TV broadcasts to mobiles, focusing on the North American market. The alliance is looking to have a DVB-H infrastructure ready for use by 2007. That's only a year away! Great, now I can throw away all those lame books I own and stick strictly to TV.
