Sony Digital TV Tuner for Mobile Devices

This is one of the best bits of news for the environment for PicoP I've seen.

You might ask why.

First what is PicoP & why is it important?

PicoP is a means for delivering media to media hungry customers. The product isn't a collection of lasers and mirrors, it's not simply a "better projector" -- it's an efficient means of getting content from content sources to end users who want it.

That it is a gigantic improvement in portability & energy efficiency and convenience is key. -- that it's a portable LARGE screen is hugely important.

This particular advancement is important because with this -- many people will be able to access live content from live broadcasts -this provides distinct content benefits:

  • Subscription to content isn't necessary.
  • Data expense from cellular net work isn't necessary
  • Connection to high-speed internet connection isn't necessary.
  • Recording live television with your mobile device will probably be possible -- increasing the amount of content available.
This should make PicoP even more attractive to many more people.
