iLoad-c video demo

Wingspan today unveiled a video demonstration of the iLoad-c, a device that can download music from over-the-air mobile networks to Apple's iPod nano without a computer. The iLoad-c clamps onto the Nano and connects to the cell carrier's music store to download music directly to the iPod, accessing such networks as Verizon, Sprint/Nextel, Cingular, and T-Mobile. Wingspan has said it will begin discussions with Apple and others to enable WiFi capability in the near future. Cellular carriers have recently made bold moves to join the digital music revolution, offering pay-for-play tracks as well as subscription services to mobile customers desiring music on-the-go. Wingspan's new device will provide iPod users with the same flexibility that cellular customers have enjoyed since numerous carriers launched their over-the-air services. The iLoad-c is slated for shipment by mid-Summer, and will be priced at $200.
