I’ve received the Travla C137 review unit from Casetronic / Travla and will be starting a review of it shortly. I’m currently waiting on the arrival of VIA M10000 motherboard, before I can conduct the full review. It wouldn’t make much of a case review if I didn’t install a motherboard in it!

I’ll post my initial thoughts/impressions sans motherboard in the forum once I get a chance to poke around.

Not exactly PVR news, but it shows where the industry is heading. In this Yahoo/AFP article there is a soap opera in France specifically made for mobile phones.

Here is a quote:
The launch of TV’s first-ever soap for the tiny mobile phone screen might not suit everyone’s taste, but it is living proof that the TV and digital worlds are merging.

Note: rampy> I wonder when there will be putting HD’s into phones =) CellPod anyone?
