Taiwan ODM brings live, free-to-air TV to CDMA consumers in slim, high quality LCD designs

LAS VEGAS, January 7 - At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) today, Telegent Systems, the
company that makes television mobile, announced that Telegent's analog mobile
TV receiver is incorporated into two CDMA TV handset designs introduced in Q4
2009 by Taiwan ODM MobilMAX. With these designs, MobilMAX brings together its
expertise in CDMA and GSM technologies and operator-grade solutions with a
free-to-air TV feature that enables consumers to view the same live TV
programming that they watch on conventional TV sets. MobilMAX's analog TV
handsets include the C889MA, a slim metal design with a high quality QCIF
display, and the CG968A, a dual-mode CDMA/GSM handset with a 2.4" QVGA

"Telegent's mobile TV receiver delivers the performance necessary to
provide consumers with a high quality viewing experience," said Andrew Jung,
president of MobilMAX. "The sensitivity, mobility and low-power realized by
Telegent's television-on-a-chip solution enable consumers in countries with
analog TV infrastructure to enjoy their favorite live programming - whether
news, sports, series or movies - while on the go."

Analog mobile TV has rapidly become the most prevalent form of broadcast
mobile TV worldwide. Analyst firm Forward Concepts estimates that analog
mobile TV handsets accounted for more than half of 2009 broadcast TV handset
shipments. With more than 88% of the world's population continuing to receive
analog broadcast TV signals during 2013, handsets incorporating analog TV
receivers are able to address a large, global consumer base.

"MobilMAX's CDMA designs now make live, free-to-air mobile TV accessible
to operators serving a CDMA consumer base in analog TV markets," said Sam
