With the popularity of MP3 players steamrolling ahead, Pixo, Inc. has released a new feature that will enhance the consumer's experience in managing their music on MP3 players. Using a graphical user interface, the Pixo MP3 Mobile Navigator is an application that gives consumers the ability to sort their playlists of songs downloaded to their players. Built on the Pixo OS Platform, the Navigator gives manufacturers the flexibility of having standard screen displays for various player products, from one line text displays to 240 x 320 higher resolution displays.
"Managing thousands of tracks on a small display and without a keyboard is a challenge for the consumer. Even more difficult is the system designer's task of creating the interactive experience for these new types of devices. The release of the Pixo MP3 Mobile Navigator gives manufacturers a tool to easily implement a user-friendly GUI," said Michael Maia, vice president of marketing at PortalPlayer. "Together, the PortalPlayer digital media platform and the Pixo MP3 Mobile Navigator provide manufacturers a complete solution to create feature-rich, user-friendly entertainment products."
Pixo has also partnered with PortalPlayer, Inc. "to provide consumer electronics and computer manufacturers with the tools to build more intuitive MP3 products." In addition, Pixo has joined HP's Mobile e-Services Bazaar to leverage the Pixo Mobile Download Server and HP products in the Asia Pacific region.
