The imminent launch of Apple's 3G iPhone promises to revolutionize the mobile TV market according to a new report from telecom and digital media advisory firm Analysys Mason, which argues the handset could become the mobile video delivery device of choice by dominating the space before mobile broadcasting networks become widely available.

According to Analysys Mason, the 3G iPhone--widely expected to officially launch next week during Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco--would bring to market video-friendly specifications like high-quality widescreen display, substantial internal memory and low battery consumption as well as support for multiple content delivery protocols including sideloading, indoor WLAN and high-speed 3G access.

No less significant, Apple's iTunes retail storefront already offers more than 600 TV programs and over 1500 feature films, with research indicating that many existing iPhone owners have already accessed mobile TV and video content in far greater numbers than consumers on rival devices.
