Siano announces SuwonExpress ExpressCard for mobile TV
Israel's Siano Mobile Silicon has announced a new accessory for those looking to bring a little mobile TV action to their laptop ExpressCard-style, with its SuwonExpress card set to make its official debut at CES in January. The card is based on Siano's own SMS1000 chipset, which will let you pick up all the usual mobile TV signals (stuff like 1seg, notwithstanding), including DAB, DAB-IP, T-DMB, DVB-T, and DVB-H, as well as standard VHF and UHF bands. You also won't have to worry about standing out from the crowd while you rig up a goofy-looking antenna, with the SuwonExpress boasting a relatively discreet integrated antenna that can be extended when needed. As Siano's an OEM manufacturer, however, pricing and availability will depend on the companies that decide to pick up on the design, although Cyberlink (who also had a hand in the card's development) looks to be on track to be the first to deliver it as part of a software bundle sometime next year.
