Japanese phone groups NTT DoCoMo and KDDI said Wednesday they have each developed a mobile phone that receives television programming.
DoCoMo said its P901TV, which was jointly developed with Panasonic, allows users to watch and listen to television on their mobile handsets. Fully charged, the handset will enable users to watch up to two and a half hours of television.
Meanwhile, KDDI's AU said it has developed its W33SA handset with Sanyo Electric. Its phone not only allows users to watch television, but it will allow users to find out more about the area they are in by making use of the built-in global positioning system.
