Comdex News – Real Player to Support Palm OS

by Reads (3,562)

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:

  • Transfer personal audio media collections from their RealOne Player on the PC onto their Palm Tungsten T handhelds
  • Select and playback songs from sound device cards
  • Easily access content with the Tungsten T handheld’s 5-way navigation
  • Run multiple tasks while listening to RealAudio or MP3 programming
  • Conserve battery power through the auto-dimming capability

    “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.
