BARCELONA, Spain-Nokia Corp. showed off a range of new technology at its Mobility Conference, including a phone that can receive DVB-H mobile TV broadcasts. The phone is the first announced device that can receive DVB-H content, although vendors in South Korea already launched commercial services and devices using the rival DMB mobile TV standard.
“We expect the market for convergence devices to double to 100 million units in 2006,” said Nokia Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jorma Ollila. “Convergence is opening up a world of opportunities for our customers and partners, and Nokia is committed to developing the tools, solutions and products to make the promise of the digital industry a reality.”
Nokia’s new DVB-H phone, the Nokia N92, features the Symbian operating system and can record TV broadcasts. The phone also features a digital music player. Separately, Nokia released its high-end Nokia N71 and the Nokia N80 devices.
