Real-time TV in your cell phone

[COLOR=royalblue]Sprint Corp. is adding a television service for cell phones with real-time programs, albeit somewhat choppy, from cable networks. The new MobiTV service, available starting this week, will cost $9.99 per month in addition to the monthly fee of $15 that Sprint subscribers pay to use the Internet data connection on their mobile phones.[/COLOR]

At one or two frames per second though, this is far away from the real deal, then again a step closer to it with full-motion video expected sometime in the close future.
