By Markkus Rovito
As the one-hit wonder said, "Video Killed the Radio Star" when MTV hit in the early '80s. Now, video is at it again, as the mobile video category is beating back radio and CD to become "the shining star of the mobile electronics industry," according to Mike Cofield, president of Custom Sounds in Austin, Texas.
Just as DVD and DTV are doing in the home electronics industry, mobile video is growing rapidly in a year that's been otherwise soft for CE sales.
