Today, as PCMag notes, Dyle briefly provided the name for said device on a FAQ page: the Samsung Lightray 4G.
Now Dyle’s site says its system will support both Android and iOS devices, presumably with add on boxes like the Tivit, but the Lightray is the first phone with the service built in.
The phone is quite similar to the industrial design of the original Droid Charge, but the key difference is that it supports receiving OTA broadcasts without using data thanks to its old school antenna and an Android app to go with it.
Metro needs to do better than offer us a phone with 2 yr old specs (see VZ Droid Charge).
Dyle TV is also meant to bridge the gap for reaching people in the event of a serious local, regional or national emergency, as the standard supports the National EAS initiative launched late last year, with the Mobile DTV broadcast receiver being able to receive EAS messages via multiple channels.
More specs were leaked on Android Forums, revealing a phone that has a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED display, 8 megapixel camera, HDMI out, and a reported 1,550mAh battery.
Live TV matters, and mobile TV consumption is additive: 85% ofconsumers have watched live TV in the past month, and 68% ofrespondents would watch more TV if they were able to watch it live onmobile devices while on the go.
Dyle Mobile TV is the conditional access mobile DTS brand adopted by the Mobile Content Venture (MCV), owned by 12 broadcast groups representing 281 stations, and two other TV broadcasters.
