Motorola bringing ROKR with live digital TV to States

Moto ROKR Z6tv at FCC

Motorola is set to release only the third phone to date for Verizon's V CAST TV service, a new FCC filing shows. Called the ROKR Z6tv, the device will play on the original concept of the Linux-based ROKR Z6m music phone by adding a MediaFLO receiver for picking up Verizon's digital TV channels anywhere inside the provider's coverage area. Unlike the LG VX9400 or Samsung U620, however, the antenna will be hidden within the body rather than mounted externally to avoid disrupting the slider's appearance.

Few changes have been made to the reference platform based on the details released in the filing. The only sacrifice made to accommodate the TV decoding chipset is the switch from a standardized 3.5mm headphone jack to the 2.5mm jack used on many cellphones, according to the application. A 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth with A2DP stereo, and EVDO will remain.

Much as with earlier FCC disclosures, the latest documents don't point to a specific release date. Nevertheless, the US government body's approval clears the path for a release within the next few weeks or months. [via Phone Scoop]
