Japanese iPhone Users Get 1-SEG TV Tuner

With T-Mobile just now rolling out it’s 3G network, it’s pretty apparent that the US is lacking in awesome technology. Japan and other Asian countries get to watch mobile broadcast television via DVB-T or 1-SEG, which can make a morning commute a lot more entertaining. Unfortunately, iPhone users have been left in the dark – until now.

Released in conjunction with a free iPhone application, this 1-SEG TV tuner will hook up to your iPhone and will provide you with up to three hours of TV viewing. It even has a built-in battery to help you get some extra life out of your iPhone. It’ll run you 10,000 yen or about $100. Not a bad deal for television on the go and a lot cheaper than the iTunes Music Store.
