Nokia N80 users can now stream media from home

Nokia and Orb MyCasting

Cellphone owners who like to carry files and media with them often reach the storage limitations of their handhelds quickly. A typical microSD card holds no more than 2GB of information at any one time. This is particularly noticeable for owners of Nokia's N80 Internet Edition, who may have bought the phone specifically as a mobile substitute for their computers. This is why Nokia today said that the N80 would be the first phone to be integrated with Orb's MyCasting service: instead of transferring information to a memory card, users can simply stream any media stored remotely on their computer and play it from the phone. Orb's software even records TV and can give remote access to the resulting video clips. No charge is expected for the feature aside from data charges that stem from the owner's cellphone plan. The feature should accompany the N80 Internet Edition phones when they ship to North America in November.
