Mossberg reviews MobiTV, Sprint TV
Walter Mossberg, star reviewer for the Wall Street Journal, took a look
[subscription only] at two mobile TV offerings available to Sprint PCS users. Mossberg's reviews are known to make or break services, which is bad news for Sprint TV:
bq. To find out, my assistant Katie Boehret and I have been testing MobiTV and Sprint TV. Our verdict: Neither service will ever be confused with even basic cable on a cheap TV set, but MobiTV was pretty fair, while Sprint TV had serious problems.
Sprint TV is available only on the Samsung MM-A700
, while MobiTV works on most Sprint PCS handsets.
bq. We'd advise waiting until the deployment of the faster cellphone technology. Then, all TV, all the time, will become a more practical option
