According to editor Dan O'Shea, "Telco TV subscriber figures are not the only indicator of how TV service providers are making their way through a harsh economy, but the TV subscriber numbers from the two largest telcos in the U.S. are showing virtually no ill effects at all. Verizon Communications and AT&T each added nearly 300,000 TV customers during the first quarter of this year."

Cisco Systems and Avail Media have recently announced their partnership to provide wholesale IPTV outsourcing and content aggregation. The agreement integrates Avail's satellite distribution of MPEG-4 video content with Cisco's IP NGN architecture capabilities, including, "IPTV encoding, encapsulation, middleware and digital rights management, scrambling and descrambling, satellite receivers, conditional access, set-top provision, service management, systems integration services, and program management for video hub office components."
It seems that the point is to offer a more seamless, end-to-end solution for companies looking to provide IPTV services.
According to Fierce IPTV, "While SES Americom is exiting the wholesale market with the shut down of its IP-Prime offering, other companies in this segment have been ramping up their offerings in recent months to win over IP-Prime customers and pursue new opportunities."

Supposedly the device will plug into a docking station and will be coupled with another device that will synchronize data for the phone while it charges the phone's battery. T-Mobile did'nt comment on the specific devices mentioned in the report, but did confirm that it plans to introduce more Android-based devices.
As for the tablet PC, the report said the gadget will have a 7-inch touchscreen and no physical keyboard. Users will be able to do basic computing tasks and manage data on different home devices.
According to FierceWireless, "If confirmed, the new products would cement T-Mobile's image as the most Android-friendly carrier in the United States. It already offers HTC's G1, the first phone in North America based on Android, and will, in all likelihood, launch the HTC Magic, HTC's second Android phone. In addition, T-Mobile likely will also offer a Samsung Android-based phone."
