DigiTimes says BenQ will launch its first phones with support for DVB-H mobile TV in the second quarter of next year. These handsets will be aimed at the European market.
The DVB-H enabled handset will be built using chipsets from Texas Instruments and marketed under the BenQ-Siemens dual-brand, the sources indicated.

For markets in North America, Latin America, and Asia, BenQ also plans to introduce other mobile TV-enabled handsets that support Qualcomm’s MediaFlo system, the sources noted, adding that the launch of MediaFlo-enabled handsets will come at a date later than the DVB-H model.
