Samsung and IDAG to push DMB/DAB Plus for mobile TV and digital radio

Samsung and the International DMB Advancement Group (IDAG) have teamed up to launch digital radio, mobile TV and internet services in Europe with the Samsung Galaxy S WiFi 5.0.

The device will be available from April, 2012 in Germany, the Netherlands, UK, Switzerland, Norway and South Africa.

“Samsung believes that such functionalities will take Galaxy S WiFi 5.0 to a new level. Built-in DMB/DAB Plus provides excellent radio and TV experiences on the go,” said Byung Joon Jang, director of MID sales and marketing at Samsung Electronics.

DMB is currently available in more than 40 countries globally.  Samsung believes that European governments are increasingly favourable to the replacement of FM radio with DMB/DAB Plus as the de facto standard for digital radio.

The Android-based Galaxy WiFi 5.0 will be exhibited with the demonstration of mobile TV and digital radio services at the forthcoming Mobile World Congress.
