Cingular testing DVB-H

Not surprisingly, French mobile TV chip maker DiBcom says Cingular Wireless is testing the semiconductor company's DVB-H chips. As a GSM operator, Cingular has aligned itself with Europe, which is poised to launch DVB-H, while CDMA operator Verizon Wireless plans to use QUALCOMM's MediaFLO mobile TV network. The U.S. market is poised for another GSM vs. CDMA type of battle when it comes to mobile TV technology. But the interesting wild card will be Sprint, which is going to build its own TV services in the 2.5 GHz band.
