Tivit Bringing Mobile TV To Phones, Laptops New Gadget Receives Mobile DTV, Wirelessly Sends To Device Of Your Choice
Valups has introduced a new mobile DTV player that will let you watch
mobile TV on any WiFi enabled mobile device (phones, n
otebooks). It does this by having a separate, mobile phone-sized
receiver, that receives the DTV signal, then beams the video to your
device of choice.
Current, the Tivit receiver is compatible with Windows notebooks,
Motorola phones running Android, BlackBerry phones and the iPhone. Of
course you have to carry around a second device to join DTV, but it's a
great way to get DTV on a device that doesn't offer it. The Tivit
receiver is 2 x 3.5 in size and weighs only 2.8 ounces.
In case you're not keen on carrying around a second device for mobile
DTV, Valups is developing a Mobile DTV module that tech manufacturers
can build into various gadgets of your choice. The Tivit will have three
hours of battery life – it'll be released sometime in Spring 2010
and will have a suggested retail price of $120.
