To confirm, and as misstated in yesterday’s WWJ Newsletter under “NTT DoCoMo finally needs Microsoft”: the new handset equipped with Microsoft Windows Media Audio software and DRM is the F902iS, and not the N902iS. Sorry for the confusion (the links to the F902iS page were correct). Note, moreover, the item below, “Windows Live Messenger for DoCoMo.”
This is more evidence that the Microsoft telco group are having at least some success in bringing their Connected Services Framework architecture to DoCoMo. If Redmond can’t get onto the world’s most successful mobile platform via the Microsoft mobile browser and OS, then they’ll get onto i-mode via IP multimedia and other enabling technologies.
