RealNetworks®, Inc. announced today that the mobile version of the RealOne™ Player, optimized for Pocket PC devices and showcased content from more than thirty content providers, spanning news, entertainment and sports, is available for free download at www.real.com/player/mobile. Additionally, as part of an expansion of the two companies’ strategic relationship, Compaq will ship RealOne Player with Compaq iPAQ™ Pocket PC devices.

With RealOne Player, Pocket PC users will be able to access and play RealAudio® and RealVideo® programming and seamlessly transfer their personal media collections such as music from RealOne Player on their PC onto their Pocket PC devices.

Additionally, mobile carriers are able to trial and deliver media programming to Pocket PC devices with wireless connections over 2.5G and 3G networks.
