MADRID, Spain — SIDSA and Telefunken have reached an agreement for the commercialization of a brand new line of DVB-H/T mobile TV enabled mobile phones.

In the framework of the agreement SIDSA will take care of ensuring the interoperability of the phone with any existing DVB-T or DVB-H digital TV network, adding value added applications, like interactivity or ad-hoc features, and of marketing & commercializing the mobile phones. “We are very excited, we believe that the Telefunken touch mTV phones will be the perfect complement to our turn-key mobile TV solutions”, said Mr. Jesus Fernandez, Marketing and Business Development Director of SIDSA.

The Telefunken touch mTV line of mobile phones are particularly targeted to those countries with Digital Terrestrial TV reception (DVB-T) or with pure mobile TV (DVB-H); they incorporate a powerful touch screen, have a dual SIM slot, either for two mobile telephony providers or for including a pay-TV smart-card, and all typical features of mobile phones. “They are the ideal portable media centre, with them you can watch TV and movies with an extremely good picture quality and besides use them as a normal mobile phone”, said Fernando Mobley, sales director at TELEFUNKEN ID Systems Iberica, “we believe that this agreement with SIDSA will boost our brand new line of mobile phones that can also be used to watch TV”.

With this new mobile phone Telefunken, traditionally known as a reference brand for TV sets, enters the world of mobile television.
