Korean mobile phones continue to feature DMB TV capabilities while portable media players haven’t really changed much, the inevitable has happend, Samsung has integrated DMB in their latest SMU-D110 PMP.
The small handheld can receive DMB signals, but it can also work as a standard PMP. A 2.4 inch 320 x 240 display makes the TV look great, I’m sure.
When not watching DMB, the SMU-D110 is just another PMP. Memory is flexible thanks to the TransFlash slot as well as Bluetooth to cut out the need for ugly wires.
Of course, this device will only be available in Korea. It will be interesting, though, to see how it goes. On one hand, it seems like it could be difficult to break into the market when so many phones are offering DMB and Samsung and others are adding DMB to cameras and everything else with a screen. People may not want to add another device to the gear bag when they don’t need to. On the other hand, the screen is bigger than what you would get on a phone, so it might just tickle your viewing fancy a bit better.
