Pleasanton, Calif. — Advanced Power Solutions (APS) has introduced its 2K6S series of wall-mount switching power supplies that consume minimal AC current under no load conditions for Green Power Compliance. The AC plugs are easily interchangeable with the press of a button and a quarter turn of the plug.

That level of popularity places mobile TV in next-to-last place among all existing mobile services, behind gambling (8 percent) but ahead of the cellar dweller, video-sharing (4 percent).

Perhaps worse news for mobile TV came from David Willan, chairman of Circle Research in the U.K., who cited a recent survey by saying, Mobile TV has currently relative low usage and what I would call average potential.”

By contrast, Willan noted that three of the four most popular mobile services currently available to cellphone subscribers—SMS, MMA and SMS/MMS alerts—involve text-messaging. Some 81 percent of all users surveyed said they use SMS. Another 40 percent use MMS services and 35 percent SMS/MMS alerts. The second commonest service, at 56 percent, is content downloads.

According to Willan, the strongest future potential in mobile services, beyond texting, is for e-mail, following by IMS and Web-browsing. In the area of future potential, Mobile TV doesn't crack the Top Ten, coming in eleventh behind gambling. Counseling caution, Willan said, Let's not forget the experience of other new technologies that have failed in the past&#!51;and I'm thinking specifically about WAP phones.”

Offering a counterpoint to Willan's lukewarm outlook, Roy Bedlow, vice president and general manager of Palm EMEA, suggested that solving ease-of-use problems for consumers can dramatically alter the potential for new technology wrinkles like mobile TV. He offered the example of wireless e-mail, which is available on 62 percent of current mobile devices but which is only used by 15 percent of subscribers.
