Watch FIFA live on the MicroTune-equipped LG-U900
Football (or soccer to us North Americans) is easily the most popular sport around the globe, and the crowning jewel of this riot starting field game is the FIFA World Cup, which takes place once every four years.
With the world gearing up for the tournament in June, fans will have the opportunity to follow their country's team live on the LG U900 DVB-H mobile phone. Image and sound quality will not be compromised, thanks to the embedded Mobile MicroTuner MT2260 chipset that is available exclusively on this sporty handset.
Combining efforts from LG, Microtune, and Hutchinson 3 Italia, this phone should be quite the hot commodity starting with the first whistle next month. The exclusive DVB-H digital television tuner chipset makes the "mobile environment more viable", as well as being "extremely reliable and durable.
Other features of this handset, outside of its FIFA watching capabilities, include a 2.2-inch swivelling color LCD, UMTS connectivity, and a pair of cameras (1.3 megapixel primary, and 0.3 megapixel secondary). Expect this phone to be available through the Italian branch of "Three".
