Your TV inside the Nokia N77 (if you live in Europe or Asia)

Nokia N77 brings TV to your phone.

Ready or not, TV on your cell phone is here. Verizon Wireless unveiled its V Cast Mobile TV at CES 2007, and just today, Cingular/AT&T announced that it will use Qualcomm's MediaFlo technology to bring live TV to its phones. However, as fellow Craver Nicole Lee pointed out, European and Asian carriers are gravitating toward DVB-H, a competing mobile TV standard, as evidenced by the new Nokia N77. Announced at 3GSM, the N77 is the newest device to join Nokia's N series of multimedia computers and supports the DVB-H technology so you can enjoy live TV on its 2.4-inch, 16-milllion-color flat screen. There's a dedicated TV button right on the device, and you can browse a program guide and set up reminders to tell you when a show is starting. There's also plenty for audiophiles with support for MP3, AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, and WMA files, integrated stereo speakers, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Other highlights include a 2-megapixel camera, S60 3rd edition on Symbian OS, Bluetooth 1.2, and 20MB internal memory with a microSD card slot. The Nokia N77 will start shipping in spring for about $480.
