MediaPlayer for PDAs

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 01 Mar 2000 17:08

Microsoft announced yesterday that they have released Windows MediaPlayer for Windows CE. This means that owners of audio capable WinCE PDAs can now play MP3 and WMA files with their hand-held computers.
This is a major thing for those few manufacturers in WinCE software scene who have already published their MP3 players for WinCE - most of them are commercial. Who would buy MP3 player if you get it free with your operating system? Good old MS trick works still - remember Netscape...

Anyway, good news is that now people can choose from two different audio formats - Microsoft's own WMA format and de facto format, MP3.

The Windows Media Player is now available for download for Casio Cassiopeia E-100 and E-105, the Compaq Aero 1500 and 2100 Series and the HP Jornada 430SE.

Users can download the software for free from this url.
