Posted Apr 23, 2009

Indian telecommunication companies plan to focus on video content as 3G continues to expand in the second most populated country.  This is why Wipro bought the mobile TV division from Nokia.  Nokia’s Mobile Broadcast Solution is a server platform based on DVB-H.   ?We wanted to focus on the consumer side of things, the mobile TV client in the devices, rather than on the business-to-business side,? stated Nokia in regards to selling.  Nokia’s Mobile Broadcast Solutions employs about 40 people that worked on software and hardward for Nokia mobile TV.
