LISMO! competing with iPod and iTunes

(Tokyo, Feb. 6, 2006 by Eurotechnology Japan KK) In the last few days KDDI/AU‘s “MUSIC-HDD” phone (W41T by Toshiba) went on sale nationwide in Japan. The W41T includes a 4 Gigabyte 0.85 inch (22.6mm) diameter Hard Disk Drive (HDD), and can store roughly 2000 full songs. This storage is the same as for a top range iPod-nano (however the storage in an iPod-nano is flash memory, not HDD). With the “MUSIC-HDD” phone and other “music player” phones, KDDI/AU launched the “LISMO!” service, an integrated online-store & mobile & PC music offering, which competes in the same arena as iPod/iTunes.
