HandHeld Entertainment is introducing support for all devices running the Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 operating system to its ZVUE.com on-line property.
The company also announced that it will launch a “micro site” optimized for these mobile devices by the end of this year.
Users of such devices with wireless Internet connectivity that run the Windows Mobile operating system with Windows Media Player 10 Mobile, can use their mobile devices to log onto ZVUE.com to purchase, download and play music videos and other forms of portable video content right on their devices. The “micro site” that HandHeld Entertainment will launch by the end of this year will make this download process even easier.
Consumers with devices running Windows Mobile 2003 with Windows Media Player 10 Mobile can also use ZVUE.com to purchase and download music videos, movies, TV shows, comedic short films and play them on such smartphones and PDAs as well.
As an alternative users can purchase and download videos from ZVUE.com onto a personal computer running the Windows OS and then load those videos onto their portable device via a USB or mini-USB port connection or by saving the videos onto an SD/MMC and/or miniSD card and loading the card into their device.
The company has more than 4,400 videos available for purchase out of more than 11,000 video selections it has under contract. These selections include music videos, anime features, television shows, movies, cartoons, independent films, documentaries, news, entertainment and sports programs from companies ranging from Sony BMG to IMG Media and from Canadian Broadcast Corp. to Fun Little Movies.
