The handset is the first to bring Telegent's free to air mobile TV feature to CDMA operator networks and is now launched in China Telecom stores in a number of provinces throughout China.

"We are delighted to work with China Telecom and Zhenhua Moint to extend the availability of Telegent's mobile TV solution to CDMA consumers."
The MT-V810, in addition to TV and FM radio reception, features a 2.4" touchscreen and a 1.3 megapixel camera, supports up to six hours of continuous TV viewing time, 200 minutes of talk time and 300 hours standby time and measures 107.9×52.6×16.2mm.
