Digital radio and mobile TV will start to appear in some Android tablets from the summer following a partnership between device manufacturer Enspert and the International DMB Advancement Group (IDAG).

Enspert is the second largest tablet maker in South Korea and the deal involves four new models harnessing DAB, DAB+ and DMB under the brand name, Identity.

IDAG chief Gunnar Garfors said the inclusion of TV and radio would “open the way for innovative combinations between broadcasting and the internet, giving the best of both worlds”. He estimated the additional chips would add $10-15 to the unit cost.

The four tablets are in the 7-9 inch range and will initially be sold in Australia, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, South Africa and Vietnam.
