AT&T would be open to selling handsets equipped with free digital-TV broadcast signals, if a valid business model could be mapped out, according to Ralph de la Vega, the head of its Mobility and Consumer Markets unit. AT&T and Verizon Wireless carry phones with Qualcomm's rival MediaFLO TV service that costs $15 a month, but de la Vega said "we'll look at it, and if it's something customers want and if it's a good way to monetize our business," the carrier would consider adding the service.
