LG develops 4G (LTE) Windows Mobile device

LG has been showcasing various LTE technologies and one of them was a WinMo phone running over LTE. The potential for LTE is amazing and it will definitely be the missing link for full video streaming and media capabilities on a device.

With LTE technology, users can download a 700 MB movie file in less than one minute at speeds of 100 Mbps. LTE technology would also allow consumers to simultaneously stream four HD movies without any buffering.

This is going to be an incredible advancement in mobile devices and LG are doing a great job of pioneering the technology. With over 250 staff on the research and development team, expect the first LTE devices to come from LG.

NBC video on your Windows Mobile device

NBC’s mobile portal provides streaming video (including full episodes of some shows) on both Windows Mobile devices and the iPhone (and iPod touch). Head over to the mobile NBC website to see the site and videos.

You’ll need to be patient with the video streams even when using a wireless LAN. It took about 45 seconds for it to buffer on my HTC TyTN. Then, the audio stream started without video for another 10 seconds or so. But try it out and let me know how it works for you on your Windows Mobile device of choice.

Free, no ads episodes of 30 Rock and The Office on iPhone

It looks like NBC is now streaming free episodes of 30 Rock and The Office to iPhones and iPod Touches. They’re both shown without ads, which is nice, but come with a catch: if you exit Safari while watching, you’ve got to re-download the very large files again. Not a huge problem in the US — as long as you’ve got Wi-Fi — but might cause some headaches for Canadian users when the iPhone hits there, due the high price for bandwidth up north.
