Panasonic Mobile Communications today announced it has begun shipment of P901iTV mobile handsets to NTT DoCoMo. The P901iTV is DoCoMo’s first mobile handset to receive terrestrial digital broadcasting signals in addition to conventional analog signals. The handset was created in response to the planned launch of mobile digital broadcasting in April 2006. The handset’s main display is a 2.5-inch wide-view LCD screen. Approximately 3 hours of continuous digital TV viewing is possible.
The P901iTV allows users to enjoy services that blend mobile communications and broadcastings. For instance, when you are watching the TV program, you can go to websites related to its TV program simply by clicking the URL shown on the display during the broadcasting.
It can also let you watch TV both vertical and horizontal angles. Depending on the handset angles, the P901iTV display screen automatically rearrange its direction, from right to left or top to bottom, to best fit for the viewing. Another feature is you can immediately change the TV channel by simply pressing the channel number. With this function, you don’t waste your time forwarding channel button repeatedly until you get the right channel. Via: JCN
