MediaFLO gets useful: data-casting next step says Qualcomm

It's fair to say we've never been huge fans of Qualcomm's MediaFLO system, the company's broadcast TV technology which aims to rival data-based IPTV services to mobile devices.  Now, though, it seems Qualcomm has finally come up with a decent application for MediaFLO: at their IQ 2010 event in London this morning, the company revealed they're now looking at using MediaFLO for data-casting, offloading regular network traffic and reducing congestion.

Qualcomm Q2 Sales Results Show $3.9 Billion in Revenue

It appears that everyone is excited to let the world know that they're massively successful today, both Qualcomm and Apple showing off fabulous numbers in print form for the public to digest. It's a LOT to digest when you've got it all lying out there in front of you, and indeed we DO have their entire sales call and numbers here in this post, but let's see if we can't filter it down a bit for those average citizens who, like me, like to see giant numbers after money signs right underneath year markers.

FCC gets LG GM630 flip; shows TV tuner for US

FCC gets LG GM630 flip; shows TV tuner for US

The FCC got their hands on the LG GM630 flip today and it seems this handset might just be making its way to the U.S. with a TV tuner at the ready. That would certainly make for an interesting mobile phone, wouldn't you say?

We don't know any of the official specs as of yet, but what we do know is that it will be very similar to the LG HB620T, which is available currently in Europe. We can assume it will have a 240 x 320 rez screen with a 2-megapixel camera. Other features will possibly be an FM radio tuner and Bluetooth.

But with a TV tuner thrown into the mix, it's hard to say how this one will work.The big question on everyone's minds right now is how the TV signals will get to the phone in the first place. MediaFLO seems like a likely option, but nothing is official at the moment.
