"Nokia is attempting to redefine terrestrial digital television in Europe by introducing a portable/mobile TV device featuring a GSM phone and designed to offer TV programs as well as datacast, Internet access and e-mail services.

With partners ZDF-a German public broadcaster-and Deutsche Telekom, Nokia demonstrated a prototype of its battery-operated, color-LCD-screen digital TV, code-named Media-Screen, at the Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA) 1999 exhibition here last week.

Nokia's MediaScreen, with an embedded computer running the Linux operating system and a GSM phone used as a return channel, was shown in action as both a portable device within a booth and as a mobile unit installed in a car that could be seen cruising the IFA exhibition halls."
