Get ready for CES 2011! more than two dozen Mobile DTV devices are set to grace the event.

The Open Mobile Video Coalition will be present at CES 2011; showcasing a set of mobile TVs that will excite the couch potatoes on the go. First on the list is the glass-free LG 3D mobile TV, though some are still skeptic about this one. But for 3D lovers, this mobile unit might make them go insane.

While a tad full of mobile TV devices are likely to be present at CES 2011, Tivizen is one unit that is worth noticing. This device brings local broadcast television to your iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. Just plug it in the 30-pin socket, and you already have two hours and thirty minutes of Mobile DTV video! The Tivizen will be available on June for only $99.

Mobile TV: On Screen Dimensions and Viewing Patterns

After accumulating facts and figures on mobile screen dimensions and viewing patterns, MobiTV comes to this conclusion: bigger is better.

The mobile tv operator studied usage patterns while FIFA was happening in South Africa. It found out that users viewing through larger devices watched the World Cup much longer than those with smaller screens. Its findings also included the discrepancy between the numbers of views done on the iPhone and Android mobile.

Here are the results for soccer mobile views, as reported by MobiTV: 5-inch phone users stay tuned for an average of 118.2 minutes, 4-inch screens had their users tuned in for an average of 102.2 minutes, and those who watched with 3- and 2-inch handsets timed 67.4 minutes and 61.1 minutes, respectively.

And here is the rundown for mobile tv usage on various mobile platforms: iPhone users recorded 77.8 minutes on average, which is relatively higher than Blackberry users’ average of 65.4 minutes and Windows Mobile users’ 62.7 minutes–but remarkably less than Android users, who were glued to their screens for an average of 125.7 minutes.

We know that Android has more users now than iPhone, and if this study is to be factored in to mobile TV’s further developments, then the future will have more Android users tuned in to mobile TV shows longer than everybody else.
