MS “portable” coming this X-mas?

July 6, 2006

Is Microsoft releasing a portable media player this Christmas? Bloomberg seems to think so. There’s no mention of gaming capability.

I seriously doubt this is the truth. Microsoft seems to do just fine making their own codecs and OSes and such and licensing them to other folks. I think more likely they will be developing a new media player platform and letting other people build it.

We’ll see if such a thing comes out, and if it can beat the momentum held by the iPod.
