Microsoft this week announced a free beta client of MSN Direct for Windows Mobile Standard Edition in the form of a home screen plug-in. MSN Direct is best known for its SPOT watch technology, which is currently used to broadcast info to navigation and media devices using FM frequencies. The new Windows Mobile client uses the Internet for data delivery instead of FM. The client currently supports news, weather, and stocks, displayed directly on the home screen. The software includes direct links to the web for more on each each bit of info. The beta client is available for free download today. Microsoft has not yet decided whether the final version will be offered through carriers, manufacturers, or directly, nor whether it will be ad-supported.

um...who cares?

Just what I want. Banner ads on my Today screen. There are already a million other applications that provide this type of service for free, why would I consider paying? I'll stick to Sprint On Demand...thanks.
