Not a Windows Mobile related news at all but interesting, especially because I'm a big Orb-supporter.
After Vodafone Germany, today also Nokia announced that they will work with Orb Networks to integrate Orb's new MyCasting service (I've recently previewed here) into the Nokia N80 Internet Edition. The integration will arrive initially in the United States when the device begins to ship November of this year. Orb MyCasting offers a single solution for enjoying all of your digital media stored on your home computer, remotely.

Together, Nokia and Orb allow you to instantly enjoy your home photos, videos, music, and even TV, where and when you want. Orb's intuitive solution simply streams a person's own content from their home PC using the Web browser and player on their Nokia N80 Internet Edition, creating their own "personal media portal". You can also remotely record TV programs using Orb's Digital Video Recorder (DVR) function and then play back those recorded programs to their mobile device.

"The Nokia N80 Internet Edition was developed to make it easy for people on the go to interact with their favorite internet services and content," said Nigel Rundstrom, vice president Nokia Multimedia, North America, "Working with Orb Networks clearly illustrates why Nokia calls Nseries devices multimedia computers. Using Orb MyCasting with the N80 Internet Edition delivers a complimentary range of experiences that our research tells us consumers want access to; music, photos, video, email and Internet browsing, all in a single connected device."

"What's exciting about this announcement is that it is more than just a bundling partnership," said Joe Costello, chairman and co-founder of Orb Networks. "Nokia offers a quality mobile web experience for users with the rich functionality being introduced in the N80 Internet Edition. When Orb unlocks that personal digital content on the home PC, the N80 becomes the one connected device to enjoy it all. The combination offers a new level of media freedom and control for the customer."

The Nokia N80 Internet Edition is the first multimedia computer that brings together wireless LAN, UPnP and quadband GSM coverage and also provides an easy to use W-LAN wizard (to make connecting to the internet easy), support for internet calls, a robust browser, along with a 3-megapixel camera and a host of other internet related services.
