Modeo’s DVB-H handset is also a phone, music player


Mobile TV, music, and quad-band GSM? It’s too good to be true. Yet it is true. All of that functionality is packed into a new handset from mobile TV provider Modeo. It’s the first DVB-H incorporated device, and it has a lot to like.

Their HTC smartphone sports a Windows Mobile 5.0 OS, with video reception and playback of Modeo’s CVB-H broadcasts enabled via Windows Media Video. You get one-touch connection to live digital TV.

Digital music is probably a foregone conclusion given that stunning offering, and it’s included, supporting WMA, MP3, and AAC formats. You can also sign up for a portable music subscription.

Oh, yeah, it’s a phone, too. Not only is a quad-band GSM, offering 850-900-1800-1900 MHz; it’s also targeted to support GPRS/EDGE services, which means that you can download music, video, and other files at high speeds.

Just to complete the picture, the handset takes advantage of that Windows Mobile OS by giving you the by-now standard presence of Microsoft Office programs such as Outlook and Internet Explorer.

This is one handset that features a multitude of features, including the exciting new DVB-H.
