Windows Portable Media Centers go on sale.
Microsoft announced September 1, 2004 that the first Windows Mobile-based Portable Media Centers from Creative Labs will be available at electronics retailers nationwide. Portable Media Centers are a new category of multimedia players that allow people to play all the digital entertainment they store on their PC such as recorded TV, music, movies, and pictures on one device. Portable Media Centers from Samsung Electronics and iRiver International will be available later this fall. REUTERS/Jeff Christensen JC
