This is something you just don’t hear every day. Panasonic announced that it will be putting a low-voltage plasma display into a mobile phone to operate on AT&T's new Mobile TV service. The mobile TV service will feature content from CBS, Fox, MTV, and more.

The tiny plasma display will be built by AbleComm and is reported to run on only 1.5 volts of power and won’t require special wiring or power supplies. The tiny plasma displays will also find their way into other electronic devices from phones to fax machines and door intercom systems.

AbleComm president Michael N. Marcus said, "This is an unexpected and happy coincidence for all of us. Our company has had a long relationship with Panasonic. Several years ago we developed a family of high-efficiency headsets for use with Panasonic business phones, and it turned out that a proprietary component used in those headsets was exactly what Panasonic needed to complete the development of their low-voltage miniaturized plasma displays."
