Samsung adds picture-in-picture to DMB phone

Not content with enabling South Koreans to watch TV anywhere, Samsung has decided its punters might want to check out what's on the other channel without missing a moment with picture-in-picture technology.

The SCH-B710 features a rotating screen to display video in a proper ratio, and receives video broadcast over its DMB (Digital Multimedia Broadcast) network.

DMB has proved very popular in Korea, where a wide range of handsets and content make the experience akin to watching TV at home, albeit on a mini-screen. Such is the popularity of DMB, which uses DAB technology and frequencies to broadcast video and other multimedia content, that the World DAB Forum is now known as the World DMB Forum.

The UK also has a broadcast network using DMB technology, but it adds a utility layer which is only supported by the Lobster phone from Virgin, making it unsurprising that customers have found the service less than compelling. ®
