Nokia N92 - TV Phone

By: Ian Ball

It was only a matter of time before television caught up with our mobile technology. The Nokia N92 has been introduced to the world and among its array of features is the ability to watch crystal clear television right on the phone.

Mobile Phone Television
DVB-H transmissions make it possible to watch television on mobile phones, and the Nokia N92 is only the start of what is to come in this new field. The TV phone is much more than a grainy portable television we might remember from our past. The resolution is excellent and a programming guide is included.

The Nokia N92 allows you to watch television for up to four hours and even record shows or do a thirty second instant replay. A lot of people don't have that kind of option on their regular television.

The Implications of Mobile Television
Camera phones have allowed us to snap pictures and take videos for years. Videos and even major films are available for downloads, but short of streaming video, live entertainment options have been few and far between. Now, with television available on the same device as internet and voice options, the world of mobile technology just got that much more empowering.

Already many mobile phone users were bypassing traditional landlines in favor of mobile phones. After all, mobile phones may be cheaper than a regular phone line and with cable or DSL internet; there is little or no need for a standard telephone line. Cable television has all but replaced the basic channels, and those basic channels now show up in high definition. DVDs have replaced video cassettes, and streaming videos are replacing those DVDs.

It is only natural that the steadily increasing worlds of communication technology and viewing technology intersect. It is now possible to not only make phone calls or send email through a mobile phone, but send videos, watch motion pictures, and with emerging technology, catch up on your shows as well.

Most would agree that having television readily at hand is an excellent feature for keeping up to date on breaking news or watching a game while away from home. Others feel that television is already overwhelming our lives and that bringing it literally to the palm of our hands might be more detrimental than helpful. As in all things, only time will tell.
