Motorola Sings Microsoft's Tune
Feb 14, 2006, 8:32 AM by (staff)
Motorola yesterday announced a licensing agreement with Microsoft in order to bring Windows Media to its phones. Motorola will continue to offer iTunes phones, and is showing off the v3i M with iTunes at 3GSM. However, when previewing the ROKR 2, the company announced it could hold up to 1000 songs, obviously beyond iTunes 100 song limit. Motorola has said in the past that carriers will be able to choose which music software the new ROKR will come with depending on their music partner. Microsoft enabled handsets will be able to download songs over the air in Windows Media Pro format as well as transfer music from Windows Media Player on their PCs.
hey rich or eric...............song limit question.
That's all wonderful and all, but...
In addition, they have the multi-billion dollar assets --why don't they jump intot he fray with their own deal?
Actually, at this point, anybody, Napster, Real, Apple is better than Microsoft who's not established in the market of selling the music at all. All they have essentially is the resource TO be able to roll something out, and a codec that sucks due to high file size and low quality.
You always have to remember...
Could this mean...
