The screen size seems to have been determinative.  240 x 320 video looks
like crap on my computers.

My guess here is that the people who wrote this report think of 
Laptops more like portable TV receivers. Thst is, capable of using 
the full 8-VSB service and most likely used in a fixed location like 
an office or hotel room. Looks like they are discounting the notion 
that a laptop could be used in the back seat of a vehicle or on a 
bus, assuming that the viewer would choose to use their cellphone or 
a small player instead.

I got the sense at NAB that the manufacturers who are pushing this 
are looking for the next iPod. I think they believe that they can 
compete in the mobile hand held market, if only there were some 
compelling content available to drive the market. I also suspect that 
this view is driven in part by the viewing behavior of people in 
Japan and Korea, where mobile TV is already a reality.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Craig
