The reality of PlayReady's
ability to extend DRM'd media across devices still seems to be more theory than reality (just ask Nokia
) but if/when protected content wants to stay that way, Samsung hardware will be ready. The first of the company's products with Microsoft's
DRM scheme baked in are expected to ship this year, with an expected migration from the old Windows Media DRM wrapping up across all product lines by 2012. We're still dreaming about sliding content access from Zune to Galaxy S
to Media Center PC to our remote
and back, and will remain secure in our cryosleep chambers until it comes true...
