The article discusses streaming video designed to be viewed on cellular telephones. The introduction of a functional video capability on mobile phones will open a whole new revenue stream for both wireless carriers and media companies. The mobile video that is offered in 2007 is basically a teaser for the more fully featured offerings that will appear in a couple of years that will take advantage of larger screens and higher network bandwidth. To reach real mass market potential, mobile video must get an appropriate delivery protocol and usable radio channel.
