Nokia has launched a new Mobile TV headset accessory for their handsets. The Nokia Mobile TV headset incorporates a DVB-H (Digital Video BroadbandHandset) receiver which allows users to tune in and watch live TV on mobile phones. Along with this, the mobile TV headset also functions like a normal mobile headset. It also features an external remote so as to allow quick access to skip, play and pause functions while listening to music.
This new accessory from Nokia is a first of its kind. The headset is compatible with any Nokia phone featuring USB OTG (On-The-Go) and running on Symbian^3. As of now, only the Nokia N8 fills the above requirement. Hopefully, Nokia will announce more handsets which are compatible with the mobile TV headset at the upcoming Nokia Event.
The Mobile TV headset will cost around â‚¬40 before taxes and subsidies. It will hit the retail market in Q4 of this year.
