Thread Title:
Nokia and Microsoft get friendly over Windows Media
Thread Description:

Lots of coverage today about Nokia hooking up with Microsoft to provide support for WMA file, Windows Media DRM 10 and Media Transfer Protocol to their handsets.

They don’t get too down and dirty with the specifics (like which phones will be compatible or not), but from the looks of it this arrangement would let wireless carriers offer a download service (which Nokia is developing with Loudeye) that could sync up with Windows Media Player 10, and would also include the ability to transfer over DRM-protected WMA files from a PC.

More details as i find them, but at first glance it could be a killer move for M$ as they move into do what they did with the PC all those years ago on the mobile platform.
