DMB technology enables users to watch terrestrial broadcasts of the best image quality and talk on the phone simultaneously, thanks to the adoption of the LG's internally developed DMB-receiving System-on-Chip (SoC) which incorporates Mobile-XD engine. The terrestrial DMB SoC can be applied to mobile phones, notebook computers, PDAs, and car terminals. With LG DMB technology, the terrestrial DMB phone resolves problems surrounding bulky terminals and power consumption issues.
