    Konka Utilizes Telegent's TLG1100 to Deliver Live, Familiar Television
    Programming to Mobile Phones

    BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 11 /CNW/ -- Telegent Systems, the company that
makes television mobile with its high-performance single-chip mobile TV
solutions, and Konka Group, a leading Chinese manufacturer of mobile phones
and television sets, announced that they have teamed to deliver mobile
handsets with free-to-air TV.  Konka's handsets are set to ship globally
during the second quarter of 2008 and will allow consumers to receive the
live, familiar television programming that they normally view at home while
they are on the go.
    Konka's mobile TV handset feature is powered by the TLG1100, a
high-performance single-chip mobile TV receiver from Telegent Systems.  The
TLG1100 supports NTSC, PAL and worldwide FM broadcast standards and is
designed specifically for mobile environments, delivering a high quality
picture that remains stable at high speeds of up to 430 km/h.  The chip also
achieves ultra-low power consumption, enabling multiple hours of continuous
viewing time.
    "We are impressed with the performance and fast time to market of the
free-to-air mobile TV feature," said Hongtao Li, CEO of Konka's Mobile Phone
Division.  "The picture quality and long battery lifetime provide consumers
with a positive viewing experience and allow us to differentiate our handsets
and meet consumer demand."
    "We have seen strong consumer interest in free-to-air mobile TV around
the world, especially in emerging markets," said Weijie Yun, president & CEO
