FLO TV and Mophie to bring live mobile TV to the Apple’s iPhone
In competition to television broadcasters, Qualcomm’s FLO TV and Mophie announced at CES they are teaming to create a series of products that will bring live mobile TV to Apple's iPhone and iPod touch platforms.
The products, which are expected to begin shipping in the first half of this year, will bring the FLO TV mobile TV service, which competes with the broadcaster’s standard, to the Mophie battery pack.
The system integrates Mophie’s intelligent case design with a built-in FLO TV receiver that allows iPhone and iPod touch users the ability to watch live television at the flip of a switch. Consumers can also utilize the device as backup battery power in between charges.
