DoubleTwist is a great tool to convert movies to play on my phone, but I still wished Android supported more video formats. LG is teaming up with DivX to make that happen with their first Android phone. Canadian carrier Rogers recently launched the LG Eve (GW620) which is the first phone to support the popular DivX format.
DivX technology produces highly compressed video that requires minimal storage for the highest quality media experience on a mobile platform. In fact, a standard definition movie can be compressed into just 1GB using DivX technology; a size that can easily be stored on a mobile phone for viewing anytime, anywhere.
The LG Eve is available in Canada and Europe, but there are no plans to bring the device to the United States. We have heard rumors LG is working on a new Android phone for a U.S. carrier, but details have yet to emerge. Hopefully, we will see the DivX codec appear on more Android devices in 2010.
