LOS ANGELES - Oct. 12, 2004 - Today at the Windows XP Experience More event, Microsoft Corp. announced the launch of its Windows Media Player 10 Mobile, first to be introduced with the Audiovox SMT5600. It lets users automatically sync media content easily with a Windows XP PC, transfer album art or playlists, and take advantage of new digital music scenarios powered by Windows Media Digital Rights Management 10.
These scenarios include the transfer of purchased music from services such as MSN Music, Musicmatch, MusicNow and Wal-Mart Music Downloads, along with the ability to transfer subscription content from services such as Napster.
The SMT5600 is the first mobile phone which will include the new Windows Media Player 10 Mobile, which follows the previously announced Desktop version and is certified under the PlaysForSure logo program, establishing that it is compatible with the widest variety of online services.
Right now, there is no information about planned updates for current Pocket PCs and Smartphone available. I keep you updated as soon as I heard more.
