RealNetworks, Nokia team to call content

Tech pact to allow cell phones to access streaming audio, video

RealNetworks has inked a deal with Nokia, where the cell phone giant’s next-generation devices will include the streaming media company’s video and audio technology built in.

As part of the agreement, Nokia EPOC-installed phones will carry Seattle-based RealNetwork’s Real Player technology as soon as 2001. The enhanced phones will be able to access streaming audio and video content from Web sites.

RealNetworks is very excited to be working with Nokia on bringing the power of the Real Player to Nokia devices,” said Rob Glaser, RealNetworks’ chairman and CEO.

“RealNetworks strongly believes that mobile devices will play a paramount role in the future of computing and information exchange. Our work with Nokia is focused on bringing the compelling medium of streaming audio and video to the millions of device users worldwide.”

Currently mobile phone networks are too slow to support anything but the most rudimentary multi-media information and not audio MP3 files or videos.
