Remember the Mercora M service I told you about back in September. It’s a wireless, over-the-air music streaming service that sends your tunes to your Windows Mobile 5.0 Smartphone or Pocket PC. It supports the WMA, MP3 or Ogg Vorbis formats.
If you’re interested but not quite ready to sign up without finding out more, check out The Two Inch View’s review. Overall, I was impressed with Mercora M: it shows a lot of promise, and the idea is sound, even if the Smartphone client has some rough edges and a very basic user interface. The biggest challenges to this service are finding a data plan that won’t ruin you when you stream music through the day and a battery strong enough to outlast your craving for music.
Two plans are currently available from Mercora: Paying by the month costs $4.99 USD. A yearly plan costs $49.99 USD.
