In the style of the bestÂ RussianÂ hackers, Samsung Mobile basically modded its own “Moment” handset and inserted aÂ mobileÂ DTV chip into it along with someÂ circuitry and an Android app toÂ controlÂ it.Â The resulting concoction is being served at CES with mixed reviews.
An excerpt from the press release:
[Samsung] Moment was selected because of its 3.2-inch AMOLED display screen, which delivers crisp colors, bright pictures outdoors, and wide viewing angles.
Unfortunately no launch details for a Mobile DTV version of the Android handset have been announced, but Samsung did confirmed that is rolling a “Consumer Showcase ” of the device, involving Sprint customers in the Washington, D.C. and Baltimore markets during the first quarter of 2010.
So what do you think? will this eliminate the need of anÂ AndroidÂ version of the Sling Player? chime in at theÂ commentsÂ section!
