Samsung releases 10 inch Mobile TV

Press Release: High-quality personal TV for viewing excitement on the move

Berlin, Germany - 1st September 2006 - Samsung Electronics introduced the largest Mobile TV based on terrestrial DMB (Digital Multimedia Broadcasting) with a screen size of 10 inches to provide viewing excitement on the move. This Mobile TV will open up the era where everyone will have their own TV – one for each person.

Samsung positioned itself as the undisputed leader in the Mobile TV market by creating the first terrestrial DMB terminal in September 2004, developing portable DMB receiving technology and releasing the first 6 inch Mobile TV in July 2005.

The design of the new Mobile TV is in line with the “sensitivity design” of the company's R7 LCD TV (“ Bordeaux ”) series. As for features, it provides high-quality video and audio based on excellent mobile receiving characteristics. It is expected to be used as a mobile digital TV at home, where it provides great picture quality free of network connections.

The largest among Mobile TVs, the 10 inch screen is configured for the 16:9 aspect ratio that is optimal for showing digital broadcasting. MP3 and digital photo viewing functions are added, and connection to an external HDD is provided for playing downloaded multimedia content.

Senior Vice President Sang Heung Shin of Samsung's Visual Display Division says, “We made efforts to shift the concept of TV from a fixed, family-oriented device to a more mobile, personal gadget. This will bring even greater change than was created by the portable cassette player in the music industry.”

Samsung plans to promote the Mobile TV as a versatile home multimedia device. With its release, Samsung is set to reinforce its leadership in the emerging Mobile TV era.
