At the 2007 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Motorola announced it is delivering on an existing relationship with Microsoft to integrate Microsoft Windows Media technologies, into Motorola’s MOTOMUSIC mobile devices. Motorola and Microsoft have been working to build new music mobile devices.
The MOTORIZR Z6 will be the first Motorola handset to include Microsoft Windows Media technologies including Windows Media Digital Rights Management (DRM), Windows Media Audio (WMA) and Media Transfer Protocol (MTP). This new slider offers simple connectivity to Windows-based PCs via the USB 2.0 high-speed protocol. By supporting MTP, Windows Media Player will automatically recognize the MOTORIZR Z6, letting users quickly and easily sync music from the PC to the phone from over 200 music stores worldwide.
“The MOTORIZR Z6 is the world’s first Linux-Java music phone integrating the full suite of Windows Media technologies,” says Scott Durchslag, corporate vice-president of Product and Xperience Invention, Motorola Mobile Devices. “This will enable consumers to access whatever music content they want, from the music store they love wherever they are as simply and seamlessly as possible.”
