Nokia to Support Microsoft’s PlayReady DRM

Submitted by lalit on August 7, 2007 - 2:06am.

Nokia has licensed Microsoft’s new PlayReady DRM for its upcoming S60 and S40 platform based Cell phones. According to Nokia this deal will add to and extend Nokia’s existing copy protection by including Windows Media DRM 10 and Open Alliance Mobile DRM. There is no information whether Nokia will support Windows Media DRM or not, in its ‘rumored’ online music and mobile content store. The thing that amazes me most is that Nokia has licensed Windows Media DRM after Microsoft itself has not supported it in its Zune music player business.
