Nokia and RealNetworks slip deeper into bed together

Nokia and RealNetworks have announced an extension of their existing relationship.  RealPlayer has been the de-facto media app on all of Nokia's Series 60 devices (and the super-sweet 7710, which runs Series 90) and it appears these two are quite fond of each other.  RealNetworks will make available the Helix DNA media player, a more open media technology platform they're evangelizing.  The Helix DNA code should make its way into Nokia handsets and will allow full support for a greater number of content formats, including 3GPP, MPEG-4, and of course RealVideo.
