Michael Gartenberg, an analyst for Jupiter Research, doubts users will notice the difference. He also dismisses iPhone comparisons to other smart phones.
The iPod "primed the pump for mobile video," Gartenberg said, and the iPhone "is going to legitimize the market for using the cell phone as a first-class media-centric device."
Apple has created an ecosystem of viewing choices that starts at the iTunes store, said Damon Brown, author of "The Pocket *****'s Guide to the iPhone."
"The cool thing is, you can download 'School of Rock' onto your computer, transfer it to your iPod, to your iPhone and to your TV via Apple TV," Brown said.
Although mobile video "still has a long way to go," skeptics tend to be pleasantly surprised and invariably say they would consider watching on a plane or train, Eric Schumacher-Rasmussen, editor of Streaming Media Magazine, said via e-mail.
"If any company can overcome that barrier," he added, "it's Apple."
