Most people have caught up with the "second coming" of the PC-based Web but are slowly waking up to another significant and a much larger online opportunity. I speak specifically of the Mobile Web that has not even had its first coming.
Current conservative estimates have the total number of cell phones in use at 3 billion (about 4 times the amount of PCs) but even more mind-boggling is the projection of 90% of the global population having mobile access by 2010. If you have any doubts about the numbers and trends take a look at this Post.
One company that is convinced of the opportunities in the mobile space is MobiTV. While YouTube has blazed an incredible trail in video sharing on the PC-based Web, MobiTV is seeking to do the same in the mobile space and better...better by offering long-form, real-time streaming feeds, as opposed to the short-form video clips made popular by it's better known PC-based counterpart.
MobiTV currently offers over 100 channels (50 globally) on 150 handsets with content from well-established providers such as ESPN, ABC, CNN, CNBC, FOX and the Weather Channel. MobiTV is fast gaining mainstream acceptance: Just this week, the mobile video outfit announced that it had surged past 2 million subscribers confirming that TV on the go is a popular and growing trend.
