Softbank has introduced an add on that allows iPhone users in Japan to watch TV on their phones.  The add on‚Äîa separate unit comprised of a tuner and an aerial‚Äîpicks up broadcast television signals then retransmits those signals to the iPhone via a Wi-Fi connection.  The unit is rechargeable, allowing users to watch about three hours of TV on one charge, and serves as battery top-up when the iPhone is linked to it via the dock connector.  The add on connects to a special iPhone app that is distributed for free.  Softbank retails the unit for about $100.
