MSN Direct for Windows Mobile on the way?
Garmin's commitment to using the technology in many of its modern nav units. Word on the street is that Microsoft may be prepping a Windows Mobile-based version of the MSN Direct client, a tip o' the hat to one of the service's original complaints when it original launched on wristwatches: everyone wants to get news, sports, weather, and stock information on their phones, anyway. No details are available yet -- how much the service might cost, how the data will get sucked down to the devices (our guess is FM's out of the picture), or why we might use this instead of the sites we currently use -- but we might be hearing more at MWC this week if it turns out to be legit.
