Moto DH02 Mobile TV
Motorola today started early on its CTIA expo announcements with word of the DH02, a sequel to its DH01 mobile TV handheld. The new version replaces the side controls of the original with a touchscreen interface that uses simpler icons and scrolling for its navigation. The new version also adds support for GPRS and HSDPA cellular Internet access to use the TV for two-way online features.
Many of the existing features remain the same, including a DVR-like ability to timeshift TV shows as well as pause them or grab still frames. Personal media can also be loaded through microSD cards. While not a conventional phone, it can also provide basic support for emergency calls, SMS, and Bluetooth for stereo audio. Motorola hasn't set a release date but is expected to primarily roll out the DH02 for cellular and TV providers that offer wireless TV on Europe's DVB-H standard.
