Telegent Systems has announced that Arima Communications Corp. chose Telegent's mobile TV solution for the free-to-air TV feature in selected handset models. The TV phones, which will give users mobile access to local over-the-air broadcast TV channels, will be available by late summer this year.

"We are anticipating that free-to-air mobile TV will be heavily used on handsets that can differentiate our product offerings," said Paul Wang, senior VP, Arima. "We partnered with Telegent's mobile TV solution because of their expertise in free-to-air mobile TV and the capacity of their solution to improve picture quality, low-power and mobility," he added.

Arima's TV handset provides many firsts to the mobile TV market providing users with a delightful TV viewing experience. It is the first phone from a Taiwan vendor to combine a TV button on the handset that offers the consumer with direct access to the TV function. It gives autorotation between landscape and portrait views using an integrated accelerometer. The handset also brags a stylish form-factor that measures 50mm x 110mm and integrates a connection for a TV stand accessory.
