RIM supporting Quicktime and Windows Media?

Comments

A tip’s come in from my good pal Jibi over at the forums. He’s posted a list of all future supported media formats for the RIM operating system. Supposedly we’re looking at support for “Quicktime movies (.mov) and Windows Media audio and video formats (WMA, WMV, and ASF), along with a few other goodies” coming in 2007. Huge step-up for RIM and their products here. The BlackBerry revolution is moving at a snail’s pace, but it’s things like this that nudge it along.

List of supported media types:

audio/3gpp
audio/aac
audio/amr
audio/basic

audio/mp3

    Hmm… Now if I can just get them to allow the browser to download my mobireader ebooks from fictionwise.com, I’ll be happy. That and being able to view youtube video :-)
