RealNetworks and Palm have announced an agreement that will mean Palm Tungsten T owners will be able to use Real’s mobile player on their Tungsten T devices.
Features of the new software include:
“Our recently introduced Palm Tungsten T handheld empowers users toefficiently manage information with business-critical functionality in anindustrial-strength handheld computer,” said Ken Wirt, Palm’s senior vicepresident of marketing and product management. “Now with the added audiomultimedia feature from RealNetworks’ RealOne Player, users will be able todownload, store and play back news, entertainment and music — an excitingelement for Palm’s innovative new handheld.”
Palm Tungsten T handheld users will be able to download the RealOne PlayerMobile for free here. Right now Real offers support for many PPC devices and the Nokia Communicator.
I’m quite pleased to see Real/Palm making this announcement, but am still dissapointed this feature was not available at the launch of the Palm Tungsten T. Hopefully this new software support will repair perhaps the largest oversight associated with the TT launch.
