Consumer electronics maker Sony Corp. said on Wednesday that it planned to ship in December samples of a mini digital broadcast tuner module that would enable mobile phones to act as televisions.

The tuner module, which is smaller than a postage stamp, can be used in mobile applications such as cell phones or personal digital assistants (PDAs). Sony says the module is the smallest of its kind and has the lowest power consumption.

The sample module will sell for 50,000 yen (U.S. $445) with strong demand expected from manufacturers looking to develop new products using the tiny chip, a Sony spokeswoman said.

With its small size and low power consumption, the new module from Sony seems to solve the two major obstacles to TV-equipped mobile phones -- battery life and bulk. (Reuters)
