Arima SMS integration with mobile TV
May 22, 2009
Telegent Systems, the company that makes television mobile, and Arima Communications, a leading Taiwanese handset ODM company, has revealed that Arima has enhanced its free-to-air TV handset design incorporating Telegent's mobile TV technology to enable consumers to send and receive SMS messages while watching live, free broadcast TV.
The SMS-TV feature, which will be commercially available in handset designs this summer, is targeted towards consumers who want to chat with one another while watching their TV as well as those who like to interact with participation TV programmes through voting or polling. Additionally, the design enables operators to use free-to-air mobile TV to generate revenue from related phone services.
