DVB-T can support mobile very well. The problem is DVB-T's power 
consumption and the limited capacity of the batteries in cell phones. 
The first mobile market is to cell phones because they are there but in 
the future battery life will not be the problem it is now and larger 
devices will be used for mobile video once the initial cell phone 
introduction wears off.. I still think DVB-T is the way to go. We were 
looking into fuel cells years ago. They are now coming to market for 
mobile HD cameras and will be everywhere in a few years.

Transport of fuel for fuel cells is one roadblock to acceptance today.
