LG Introduces First Commercial UMTS DVB-H Handset

LG Electronics announced the launch of the LG-U900, the first commercially available UMTS (WCDMA) DVB-H phone, at a ceremony in Rome, Italy on April 27. The LG-U900 will be available early May through Hutchison, a telecommunications services provider, in time for the 2006 World Cup.

Hutchison Italy will provide video footage of all World Cup matches beginning June 6, through the Hutchison's service channels, 'La3'. Hutchison plans to offer the LG UMTS (WCDMA) DVB-H phone to customers world-wide, after initially establishing a base in Italy.

LG's new LG-U900 DVB-H handset features a 2.2-inch 'wide-swing' screen for mobile TV viewing. Its digital broadcasting functions include ESG (Electronics Service Guide) and CAS (Conditional Access System). These functions shall support enhanced business models for mobile and broadcasting operators. Users can watch TV for up to three hours because of the phone's long battery life. The LG-U900 is also equipped with a 1.3 mega-pixel & VGA digital camera, and internal memory capacity of 58MB.

The UMTS (WCDMA) DVB-H technology evolved from DVB-T, European terrestrial digital broadcast technology, becoming the European mobile broadcast standard. It provides high-speed data transmission, a variety of channels, a high-resolution screen and strong mobile broadcasting.
