Mobile Phones from Cable Companies

November 7th, 2005

The nation’s top cable companies announced a long-awaited deal to deliver their own cell phone services through Sprint Nextel Corp. (the leading MVNO provider), creating a “quadruple play” of voice, video, Internet and wireless products for a new battle against telephone companies that are adding TV to their arsenals.

Comcast Corp.; the cable division of Time Warner Inc.; Cox Communications Inc and Sprint Nextel will pour into the alliance a total of $200 million to create a technology platform that can deliver integrated cellular and cable services.

A new set of mobile phones, expected by mid-2006, will be able to play live TV show, program a digital videorecorder, manage PC, email amd voice email plus all the other goodies that you will expect from a cell phone, ringtones, SMS, MMS etc.
