Nokia outed a very interesting accessory for its upcoming Symbian^3 handsets - a DVB-H TV tuner headset that connects to your phone for TV on the go. Watching TV on a phone usually means data charges, or having to hook your phone to a Wi-Fi network. With Nokia's Mobile TV Headset, DVB-H stations, where available, can be broadcast live on your phone's screen. The headset also serves for making and receiving calls.
Of course, Nokia warns that DVB-H channels for mobile TV are not widely available. The Mobile TV headset will set you back 40 EUR when it goes on sale in Q4. Nokia mentions that the phone has to have the USB-on-the-go feature, which is present in the N8, and probably that is the reason the contraption is only available for Symbian^3 devices, of which currently there are zilch on the market.
To keep the Nokia fans warm until the N8 hits retail later this month, we are including an interactive unboxing video below. We chose Suzy's video from the three presenters, just click on the "Crisp Call Quality" button in the end of the video, and you'll see why. Nokia is surely trying to stir up hormones with those N8 promos. We especially liked "you can hold it any way you want" and "The first Nokia phone to feature video calling feature was the Nokia 6680, launched in 2005" stones in the Apple garden.
Apple has been producing hardware for over 3 decades and their QC is perhaps among the best in the world. This issue is pointing more and more at the software. My 3GS (old antenna design) with iOS4 drops bars as well, but I use a case.
