DigitalMedia Broadcasting (DMB) via Satellite is available in Korea. SK Telecom (SKY) has a very cool handset for the service available - The IMB-1000.
The IMB-1000 features a 2.4 inch QVGA Touch-screen, Transflash slot and a 2MP digital camera. The screen slides up revealing the keyboard. It looks like there are only six keys, but I think the have two pressure points. The IMB-1000 measures 116x52x25.3mm and weighs 153g.
When receiving DMB broadcasts the battery life apparently becomes an issue.
More details on the Sky IMB-1000 site (Korean). More photos on Popco.net (Korean).
DMB is either broadcasted via satellite or terrestrial. SK Telecom has good background information on Satellite DMB. DMB is only available in Korea. Japan wants to start something similar next year. There is a field test of T-DMB in Germany.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
