Nokia to work with Motorola on mobile TV interoperability

Nokia and Motorola will work together to make sure their digital video broadcast-enabled handsets are interoperable, an Associated Press report said.

The report said both companies were using the open technological standard called digital video broadcast-handheld or DVB-H, which enabled users to watch TV on their handsets.

"Among the many digital technologies available to deliver mobile TV services, Nokia and Motorola share the view that DVB-H is an effective technology for deploying broadcast mobile TV," the companies said in a joint release.

Finland's Nokia and US-based Motorola said the market for mobile TV broadcast services would grow throughout 2006, with many pilot projects already under way, the report said.
