News from the East: World?s first DMB 2.0 phone announced

After announcing the LG Surf 4GB and revealing the Optimus handsets, LG has emerged as the first company to announce the launch of a mobile phone that will incorporate the new DMB 2.0 technology.

DMB, which has yet to catch on over here, enables a mobile phone to feature mobile TV as it integrates a TV receiver. However, the new version of DMB makes that TV an interactive service too. Hence, whilst viewing TV on the mobile, you can also access related data-based services including e-commerce, stock updates and personal video recordings but the possibilities are limitless.

The phone itself, the SU420, also known as the ‘Café Phone’, arrives with a WVGA touchscreen spanning 3.2in, according to the Akihabaranews website. It also includes a 3-megapixel camera plus a front-facing video camera for video calls, Wi-Fi, GPS, a 3.5mm headphone socket and HSPA for fast data transfers.

To be initially released into Korea, no further details are known as yet.
