LG VX9400 TV Phone

CES 2007 – The VX9400 is a TV phone which a rotating screen that allows users to watch TV in classic portrait mode, or in a slightly more comfortable landscape mode. It receives over-the-air TV broadcast via its retractable antenna. The user does not have to extend the antenna to get a good reception, phew.

Broadcasting TV shows over the air (a la DVB style) is much better in my opinion. The quality is a lot better than streaming video over the data network. Using a two-way data network to perform TV broadcasting is somewhat wasteful. Even if it works decently in the future, today, over-the-air broadcasting is the way to go.

Talking about data connection, The LG VX9400 is a 3G phone that uses the EV-DO protocol. More specs in the full post.
