Nokia and Samsung seek Mobile TV standards Nokia and Samsung have agreed to work together to boost standards in mobile television. Nokia said in a statement the two handset makers wanted to encourage greater adoption of broadcast mobile TV services. Mobile phone manufacturers and content providers alike are interested in technology that allows mobile phones to get television content, but the market is being held back by the lack of accepted standards.
Currently, there is around half a dozen competing systems. Nokia and many other players in Europe favor the DVB-H (Digital Video Broadcast - Handheld) standard for mobile video. Competing technologies include MediaFlo and DMB, which have gained ground on DVB-H in recent months.

Nokia said it and Samsung plan to make their DVB-H mobiles work with the same standards as the Nokia network services system.

I have a phone that has all these capabilities but i still feel that there is no need for TV on mobile phones. You have the TV and the computer that does all you need in the video market.
