Microsoft and Others Planning iPod Rival

Microsoft is working with Toshiba, Victor, NTT DoCoMo, and others to create and market a music player and services that will attempt to unseat Apple’s iPod. Microsoft will develop the software, and DoCoMo will offer a handset that lets users transfer Windows media files to their cell-phones. Toshiba and Victor will actually make the player.

Update (June 5th): Apparently the Japanese article was about Microsoft offering Windows Media Player 11 in Japan and companies pledging to support it. Doesn’t look like they are trying to unseat the iPod with anything new. (Source: PC Magazine)
