Nokia enters the personal video recorder market (PVR) with the Nokia 260s Mediamaster.
The Nokia 260s is actually a digital satellite receiver with integrated 80GB hard-drive for tivo like functionality. The Tivo alternative sells for about 600 Euros in Europe right now. Did not find anything about Nokia entering the US market with the 260s.
