John Strand skeptical on mobile TV

I met John Strand, the somewhat iconoclastic mobile telecoms analyst, at the Dream on Demand digital broadcasting conference in Tallinn, Estonia about a week ago. I asked him to comment on mobile TV (which is available in Latvia through LMT, though not on their network, but on air) in the Baltics.
Right now, however, Strand is debunking the iPhone in a more that 100 page report, as well as on YouTube, where he expounds on the findings. Don't get me wrong -- Strand doesn't diss the iPhone as a device. His argument is that from a mobile operator's point of view, the iPhone is no miracle from heaven (in terms of revenue generation, etc.) and probably with negative effects. But watch that stuff seperately. Here he is from Tallinn on August 27, 2009.
