Samsung is planning on releasing a phone that can receive satellite TV signals. They are going to release a package to allow users to receive up to 40 cahnnels.
The phones and services first will be available only in South Korea.

Sounds interesting. I don’t know if many people would be interested in the US.

hrm, tv on a tiny screen just doesn’t do it for me. plus, that has to suck the battery life on a phone. just give me fast internet on my phone and i’m a happy camper.

Agreed…you can watch exactly 37 seconds of TV before the battery dies… ugh

if ur talking about cell phones, the US gets the crap end of cell phones, so don’t expect us to get anything better. they already have multi-megapixel camphones in asia…we’re barely crawling past vga.
