Motorola Inc., the world's third-biggest cell phone maker, on Thursday introduced a mobile media player that shows live television, on-demand video clips and programming saved on digital video recorders.

Mobile TV, which is in the early stages of development, joins Web surfing and music as an emerging wireless feature expected to boost service revenue as mobile calling prices fall.

The device, which will be showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas next week, is pocket-sized with a 4.3-inch video screen, Motorola said.

It has a five-minute memory buffer that allows users to pause live television and also supports memory cards that can store up to 90 minutes of video, according to the company.
