Motorola using Windows Media for new musicphones

Peter Rojas

Nah, they're not abandoning iTunes or their deal with Apple -- at least not yet -- but Motorola announced today that they've just cut a deal to build a new line of musicphones sporting Microsoft's Windows Media software (they already release phones running Windows Mobile). They're promising between one and three Windows Media-powered handsets in the second half of this year, and though they don't come right out and say it, we're guessing that the phones will offer support for PlaysForSure and won't have any lame 100 song caps. Either way, they do make it clear that the phones will support over-the-air song downloads and allow transfers directly from a PC.
