BBC News: Microsoft’s portable media playerPosted: July 8, 2006
Unnamed music industry executives have told the New York Times that they have received briefings about the product.
Who would have thought! If they did build one, I expect that it will be,
- Able to synchronize with the Windows Media player (of course) and maybe even other media managers.
- Able to play all types of tunes, this includes mp3’s, ogg’s (would that be wishful thinking?).
- Robust and survive Jeans and rough handling.
India has a huge appetite for mobile music players.
