Samsung P930 TV Phone
Samsung's mobile division has just launched what it says is only the second mobile TV phone to ever reach Italy. A more advanced counterpart to the P920 released in the country this spring, the P930 adds support for HSDPA broadband and sports a dual TV tuner capable of picture-in-picture for watching two digital broadcasts at once. Video capture is a similarly high priority, as the handset ships with both a rear-facing 2-megapixel camera for stills as well as a lesser VGA camera for video calls. The P930 is set to debut with Telecom Italia by the end of this month; though it supports only Europe's DVB-H format, the company says it has committed to mobile TV in the US and will introduce phones similar to the P930 when American carriers begin adopting mobile TV next year.
