RealOne Player to spin on Sony devices

Users of RealNetworks's RealOne Player will soon be able to move their digital music to more than 20 of Sony's music devices under a deal recently forged by the two companies.

Sony will release a Music Device Plug-in for the RealOne Player on July 8, RealNetworks said Wednesday, allowing users to transfer their music to Sony's Net MD Walkman, Network Walkman and VAIO personal computers, among other devices.

The plug-in will be free for all RealOne Player users in the US. At present, the company has no plans to release the device in Australia.

The announcement comes as part of a broader multiyear agreement the companies signed earlier this year to bring audio and video technology to Sony's hardware devices. For RealNetworks, based in Seattle, the deal represents another opportunity to springboard its media player off of desktops and onto mobile devices. The software maker has been working with a number of consumer device manufacturers in an effort to widen its reach. Last March, the company launched a version of RealOne Player to run on Pocket PC devices and struck a deal to have the software incorporated on Compaq Computer Corp.'s iPaq handheld computer.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
