MOTOVIEW: Motorola's first mobile TV phone

MOTOVIEW Mobile TV Phone

In spite of Motorola's reputation for cutting-edge cellphone design, the company has been slow to embrace mobile TV, which is already popular in Japan and Korea and has seen an explosion of TV-ready handsets in those two countries. This makes US-based Motorola's recently announced MOTOVIEW phone a relative latecomer to the field. The company hopes the sleekness of its new design, launching initially in Korea, will draw users away from more established phones made by LG and Samsung. The MOTOVIEW supports the ubiquitous DMB (Digital Multimedia Broadcasting) TV format and has a swiveling screen to let owners watch TV in its native wide aspect ratio. Motorola has also given its cellphone a reasonably strong feature set that includes a 1.3-megapixel camera, 1GB of built-in memory, and external controls that let users change songs or TV programs when the phone is closed with the screen facing outwards. Those interested in experiencing Motorola's first attempt at a DMB-capable phone will find the MOTOVIEW available today in Korea through SK Telecom. Photos of the phone are available after the jump.
