Hi,

As you probably know, several network operators in Europe are working hard
to provide soon TV broadcast across mobile phones.

I'd like to have your personal view (or just intuition) about the future of
mobile or pervasive iTV from the user experience point of view: how do you
imagine it should be and how you'd like to it be (applications, content,
interaction modalities...).

Thanks in advance,

Anxo

This may not be the kind of feedback you're looking for, but I'd be concerned about noise pollution. For those who are standing nearby, it could be quite annoying if the user doesn't have headphones * like radios, but worse, because the TV modality assumes that video and audio are both available to listeners. You (as an innocent bystander) can't see any of the images, just hear the disembodied audio. Then multiply this by a crowd of trendy teens... and my selfish recommendation is to only design these devices with headphones :-)

Best of luck!
Ted

We are already seeing this in a mobile hungry community like Hong Kong. A
bus ride home usually includes some of the following:

* Noise from the bus TV advertising

* People chatting on their mobile (including myself)

* People gaming

* Polyphonic ringtones etc

This may be a reason why the music devices have become popular, to give
people an opportunity to tune out or into their own environment.
