The author reflects on the mobile television (TV) meeting at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) and the Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association (CTIA) conventions in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2008. He observes that its main purpose was to preach about mobile TV. He also reveals that broadcasters are all desperate for new revenue opportunities. The NAB convention's goal was to enhance moods and minds that the industry will deliver video to handhelds.
