The Martin Stanford show has a new email address: mailto:stanfordshow@yahoo.co.uk">stanfordshow@yahoo.co.uk. I found this quite strange, why not use a @sky.com or @bskyb.com email address...

The Future Of Phones



Updated: 20:45, Tuesday October 17, 2006



Sky News' evening presenter Martin Stanford is in South Korea, learning about the future of mobile phone technology.



South Korea is a country with few natural resources of its own, save its people, he writes.



And that is why, according to Dr Woo Park, technology companies have thrived here, using the high standards of education to maintain its position at the forefront of the development of communications.



Dr Moon Park is a senior manager at the Korean office of Qualcomm, an American firm responsible for most of the chips and other electronics that go into many of the mobile phones already in use today.



He told me that both the handset manufacturers and the service providers here are facing an uphill challenge in making money out of the mobile phone.



For a start almost everyone has one - well, eight out of 10 do anyway. And they all change them at least once every year. So where do you go to make sure your profits continue to grow?



The answer would seem to be two pronged. They invent a phenomenal number of handsets here: handsets specifically made to target very narrow niche markets; designer phones; phone best at playing music; phones with stupendously good cameras in them.



And then they offer a majestic portfolio of things to do with the phone - apart from making calls.



The most dramatic of these has to be the latest range of TV enabled phones.



Korean broadcasters - both terrestrial and satellite - make their programmes available over the air, or if the user prefers they can stream it over their chosen network.



Now, anyone in Europe who has seen this sort of thing normally complains that the picture is too dim or too blocky - not this stuff I can assure you. The screen is the highest quality, and the picture pin sharp. You can easily read even the most complicated captions on a news or sports channel, for instance.



Now this sort of thing is heading our way - with the news that Vodaphone are putting six new phones to market before Christmas - and many will have this sort of functionality built in.



Later this week, we are travelling to Tokyo to see the latest mobile technology there. Technofile will come live from Tokyo on Thursday night. See you then.
