Nokia sells mobile TV tech unit to Wipro Nokia, the world's largest mobile phone maker, has announced the sale of its enterprise mobile TV unit to Wipro, an India-based corporation that operates in the areas of information technology, consumer care, lighting, engineering and healthcare.
The Mobile Broadcast Solutions unit employed around 40 professionals who developed software and hardware to enable mobile TV technology to locate and access data from a broadcasting network.

"We wanted to focus on the consumer side of things, the mobile TV client in the devices, rather than on the business-to-business side," said a Nokia spokesman. While a few years ago it seemed that mobile television and on-demand video would be the holy grail for mobile phones, the technology has since arrived with very little interest from the public.

Sure it's great but you have to pay a lot for it and usually the quality sucks.
