ATT Mobile TV Delay

AT&T's widely reported mobile TV service has suffered a major delay, claim sources with access to the company's latest pricing roadmap. While the schedule reveals unannounced phones such as a GSM-based American version of the Palm Centro, no mention is made of the LG Vu touchscreen phone considered the linchpin of the mobile TV launch. A second phone intended for the launch, the Samsung Access, is also absent from the list and would leave AT&T without any TV-capable phones for the service, which was originally due to launch on February 5th.

The months-long delay could prove a significant setback for AT&T, whose service would not be ready for more than a year after the introduction of Verizon's similar V CAST TV service last year. However, other releases may mitigate the losses and include the Sony-Ericsson Z750 3G clamshell, the long-delayed SMT 5700, and the RAZR2-inspired Motorola Z9.
