DMB phones are hot right now in South Korea, even in this remote city of Gwangju. According to a news at Kmobile.co.kr, about 28,000 units are running in South Korea. Only 6,000 DMB (satellite) subscribers by May 3 since commercial service started on May 1. Cyberbank plans to release CP-B300, the first PDA phone with DMB, megapixel camera, and 17-pi sound in early summer.
SKY IMB-1000 is a more conservative phone, available at most shops since late April. http://www.keben.net/digital/?bc=94&pg=1&total=17&code=2038903 For about US$500, it seems to be the best-selling DMB phone for now.
And from Samsung, with a girl as always at a Samsung display.
I thought it’s a bit early to buy a DMB phone now though the SKY IMB-1000 looked good and cheap enough already compared to non-DMB phones. For my personal purpose, it could replace any of my past TVs.
