Any display with more than 65k colours simply wouldn't make sense in this device because Windows Mobile doesn't support more colours! So stop posting bulls***!
Anonymous, 30 Jul 2008Who wants to watch TV on such small screen in a phone? That's crazy. And the reception is bad:... moreThats initially what i was saying to the person earlier..Reception at terminal 5 maybe strong but where i am in uk we struggle as yet to get reception with a new rooftop aerial etc so down in the street their would be no chance of getting a picture on g600..i was one who bought the lobster 700tv and when it worked it was ok but continually updating licence and getting reception was maddening to say the least..
One good thing to say to that person earlier and its in his favour is if dvb-t works in good reception and by 2012 the freeview reception is brilliant in 98% of country the uk will not have to build a seperate dvb-h system,,but,,the freeview is directional so you would have to point your mobile at the transmitter and also at street level i cannot see it working altho i would still not rule it out..
With xperia the only tele is via 3g and thats dodgy to say the least..I am definatly for mobile tv 100% and always have been so roll on 2012 for our olympics in london..When and if tv comes fully to the mobile will we see whats happening at moment with lots cut out due to copyrights etc,,,who knows but tv on the xperia would look good with that diplay but by 2012 we do not know what handsets will be out???????
There's been wildspread talk at Esato that the next XPERIA will come without qwerty keyboard.
sony ericsson is joking, only 65k colors on a high end device's display, actually i have never seen a 16M colors device's display from sony ericsson, it's a good brand, but i still prefer NOKIA . Nice thing is 256MB of Ram, it's really like a computer, also I like it's design.
I found on PLay the release date of 30 october.. i know play have put bogus release dates up in the past because i have had problems with them, but can any one confirm this?

And the reception is bad: ATSC and the other European standard are not good for small devices; they use too low frequencies for small antennas that are kept in hand, and have troubles with the reception when the device is on moving.
a bit silly of them to announce the phone way back in Feb and still no confirmation on a release date.
only creates a sense of frustration for the interested buyer.
SE is really letting it slip.
I've pre-ordered the xperia x1 steel silver from expansys.I'm looking forward to September like it was December the 25th!

brynn, 29 Jul 2008gigabyte g-smart t600 has been ready for over one year now with the dvb-t option built in but ... moreTaken from http://msmobiles.com/news.php/7365.html
As you can see on the photo above, we have been testing reception of mobile TV in regular (not mobile version like DVB-H) broadcasting standards of DVB-T known in UK as "FreeView" (digital terrestrial, not satellite, TV) and DAB (digital radio - very popular in UK, successor to FM radio).
The location of testing was particularly well chosen: it was inside of the Terminal 5 of Heathrow airport, i.e. inside an airport where many people are waiting for flights so it was a good use case showing where watching mobile TV would be interesting for potential customers. Terminal 5 is the most modern airport building in UK and it is constructed out of glass and steel yet the reception of TV was possible with GSmart t600, that has reception not worse than regular DVB-T receivers and TV sets with "built-in FreeView".
Since GSmart t600 has a beautiful VGA display of high resolution 640x480 pixels, even watching TV channels with a lot of textual information is not a problem and one can see each and every detail of the broadcast clearly (no pixelation!):
When scanning for new channels one must set "UK" configuration and then both TV and radio channels are catched:
Practically all available FreeView and DAB radio chanels can be received. Sometimes one must turn the phone around to find the position at which reception is optimal/possible but generally comfortable high quality watching is possible.
FreeView, as the name indicates, is a free digital television directed at regular users, who would like to receive mainstream TV channels (BBC1-4, ITV1-4, E4, Channel 5, Five and its variants, etc). Obviously British pay-TV like Sky TV and Virgin Media TV are available only through satellite and cable respectively but the TV in the air directed at regular TV set owners can be received also with the GSmart t600 phone.
Conclusion: if you live in UK then GSmart t600 phone may be of interest to you as it is the only mobile phone that can bring to you full digital TV (and digital DAB radio as bonus) to your pocket!
So Brynn I don't agree with your reasons for this unit being unavailable
