The offerings planned at the outset late this year include full-motion video of news, sports, concerts and other live events, as well as movie and television clips and music videos. Added to the mix will be high-speed music downloads, 3-D games, video blogs, a dating service, text messaging and an assortment of ring tones and wallpaper.
Early glimpses of the service’s offerings and the phones’ strikingly visual menu system suggest the sort of multimedia experience found on personal computers…Thanks to advances and new economies in processor and memory chips, mobile phones increasingly serve as still and video cameras, personal organizers and Web browsers, not to mention video game devices and global positioning system navigation units.
