Prices for mobile TV chipsets falling

According to a new report from ABI Research, a number of semiconductor developers have created $10 chipsets that receive and display mobile TV, a price point that many see as an important benchmark for the fledgling industry. In a few years, analysts expect the chips to fall to $5, which will bring mobile TV down from the high-end handset market to the mid-tier market. The firm concludes that once that happens, large numbers of consumers will sign up for mobile TV and join the early adopters. ABI's last report on mobile TV predicted that by 2011, mobile TV should see some 514 million subscribers worldwide.
