This is fantastic news! Hopefully now we will finally be able to see the HTC Foreseer (pictured above) finally crawl its way out of the great big Windows Mobile heaven in the sky. The chances of us actually seeing the HTC Foreseer again are pretty slim to none since AT&T has opted to use Qualcomm's MediaFLO technology to broadcast real-time television to their handset line-up instead of the European DVB-H standard which the HTC Foreseer utilized. All is not lost though, with HTC's big announcement coming up on May 6th there is still a chance we could see a MediaFLO Windows Mobile Smartphone or Pocket PC in our future!
For those itching to subscribe to AT&T's new MediaFLO service, it is scheduled to launch on May 4th, 2008. The current subscription price list is as follows:
- Mobile TV Limited - $13/month: Includes four channels; Fox Mobile, CBS Mobile, NBC, and NBC News
- Mobile TV Basic - $15/month: Includes 9 channels; Fox Mobile, CBS mobile, NBC, NBC News, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, CNN Mobile and ESPN
- Mobile TV Plus - $30/month: Includes the nine channels listed above as well as an exclusive Sony Pictures channel
