HP has weighed in on the issue of whether consumers are ready to watch TV on their
, and has answered with a resounding "no." The company has declared that it has no plans to add
any 3G features -- especially video -- to its smartphones until at least next year, with one of the company's
Asia-Pacific execs declaring that a cellphone screen is "too small for 'Desperate Housewives'… [and] you
won't be watching a full football or cricket match." Of course, given that HP doesn't manufacture its own
smartphones, what the company thinks may have less impact than what features companies like HTC decide to include on
their smartphones. And, whether HP likes it or not, Windows Mobile smartphones are already video-capable, even if
downloading via non-3G networks makes getting those vids a chore.
