AT&T picks MediaFLO
AT&T has followed Verizon's lead and chosen QUALCOMM's MediaFLO as a source of digital TV broadcast in the US. While digital TV is extremely common on Korean and Japanese cellphones, the feature has been notably absent from North American products, which have generally substituted with downloadable clips. MediaFLO will offer those as well, and is promising fast channel change without buffering. AT&T phones and services using MediaFLO should begin to arrive in late 2007, with "advanced features" coming shortly thereafter.
