HAVA Mobile Player
by Mark R
I think that we’re all getting to the point where we want to have complete control over our television watching experience. No more watching a television show whenever “they” want us to. I suppose that you could buy a TiVo or other DVR brand if you want that, but some want to take it step further and go mobile.
So why not have something on your mobile telephone that allows you to watch and control all of the home television channels and services from anywhere? I believe the Slingbox already does this service, but so does the HAVA.
The HAVA Mobile Player is a Symbian S60 optimized version of the HAVA Player that was originally designed to work with PCs and other mobile devices. The most outstanding feature is the control over DVR programming, and a user can even program it over a distance.
The HAVA Mobile Player is designed to work with Nokia’s two-way slider multimedia devices by allowing users to switch between portrait and full-screen landscape mode as they slide the screen. Channel switching and volume control is accomplished with the phone keys. Other controls include pause, rewind, skip of their television programs.
The HAVA is available for a free direct download in Q3 of 2008.
