The Memory Stick Association began showing off a television tuner concept at CeBIT almost exactly one year ago. The demand for TV on PDAs isn’t exactly strong because no one wants to deal with massive antennas. This Memory Stick Duo card is much smaller though and could turn a lot of units if priced right. Oh yeah, it also needs to be produced and released in the US.
We met with the MSA at the CTIA and it seems while this card is not very close to production, it’s much more than just a dream. At $200 or less, Sony could turn quite a few of these units.
