Garmin Nuvi 900T
This one is only in Italy folks, so don’t don’t get too excited yet unless you happen to live in Italy. Garmin has announced a new Nuvi 900T that combines a navigation system with a portable TV (DVB-H). The release follows.
“The nuvi 900T is the ultimate device for those who want to mix business with pleasure,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “The new nuvi 900T can play live, streaming digital television and music files. But at its core, the device remains a robust and full-featured navigation device that’s straightforward enough for anyone to use.”
Using the DVB-H format, video TV content is provided exclusively by La3 TV, the Mobile Digital TV provider of 3 Italia. Each unit comes with a six-month free subscription to La3 TV content as well as access to pay per view offerings. 3 Italia launched La3 TV — the first Mobile Digital TV based on DVB-H technology in the world, broadcasting the entire FIFA World Cup 2006 on a mobile exclusive basis in Italy. 3 Italia’s Digital Mobile TV customers can watch news, sports, movies and entertainment content through an array of digital channels, including Sky, Mediaset, Rai and the “in-house” produced channels La3 Live and La3 Sport.
