One-Third of Digital TVs Will be Cell Phones in 2010

That’s according to Strategy Analytics: “In the context of the cellphone industry, digital TV will be a relatively minor event,” said David Mercer, Principal Analyst at Strategy Analytics. “But for digital TV players mobile devices represent an important new opportunity. The industry will push digital TV into people’s hands, but it faces a challenge getting them to use it.”
According to the research, 71 million digital TV devices will be sold globally this year, of which 1.9 million will be DTV phones. By 2010 annual sales of all devices will be 279 million, with mobile devices accounting for 73.5 million.
