The device includes a five-minute memory buffer allowing users to pause live TV and also supports memory cards that can store up to 90 minutes of video.

NEW YORK (Reuters)—Motorola Inc, the worlds third biggest cell phone maker, on Thursday introduced a mobile media player that shows live television, on-demand video clips and programming saved on digital video recorders. Mobile TV, which is in the early stages of development, joins Web surfing and music as an emerging wireless feature expected to boost service revenue as mobile calling prices fall.
The device, which will be showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week, is pocket-sized with a 4.3 inch video screen, Motorola said.
It has a five minute memory buffer that allows users to pause live television and also supports memory cards that can store up to 90 minutes of video, according to the company. The company said that the devices rechargeable battery supports four hours of playback time. Motorola, which has been losing mobile phone market share, said the new DHO1 device is compatible with DVBH, a TV broadcast technology standard for mobile devices that is backed by No. 1 cell phone maker Nokia and European regulators.
