Motorola to offer WMA-based cell phones

Motorola-MS phones

Motorola has announced a deal with Microsoft to use the Windows Media technology in a new line of music cell phones, to be sold alongside the iTunes phones. According to Reuters, Motorola plans to launch between one and three phone models equipped with Windows Media in 2006, while retaining its iTunes phones as a separate product line. The company already has two iTunes phones, including newly introduced ultra-thin Motorola SLVR. The Windows Media phones will allow consumers to buy songs online either from a PC or from the phones, and transfer content between the devices, according to Reuters, which also says that Nokia announced a deal to include Windows Media last year, giving Microsoft a foot in the market of the world's two largest handest makers, and placing it in direct competition with the iTunes phones.

    Apple support

    Maybe Motorola will get some more support from Apple now that MS moved into the competition.
