Nokia 7710: Cell Phone TV Is Coming
Exactly one year from when it was originally announced (with a version that was never actually released to the market), Nokia is going to take another crack at entering a new market.

The new phone, the Nokia 7710, is designed to be used as (hold on to your seats) a phone first (not many single use devices anymore, remember when a cell phone was a cell phone?), and second, as a mobile television (the quality is not yet known).

The service will first be used in Britain on a trial basis before it is hopefully released elsewhere.
