PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Just before Christmas Songbird 1.4.0 was released, and a new fix versions was released today as 1.4.3. Songbird now supports MSC storage devices and CD ripping, bringing the app one step closer to replacing iTunes for some users. What's particularly interesting is that Songbird now specifically pushes their product against users of Android, Nokia and Palm smartphones -- which is something I also suggested a few months too. Hopefully Google, Nokia, and Palm will get behind the small team in San Francisco to help out the cause, since it's also on their best interest too.

We are in need of an iTunes replacement, a **sync** app, not a new media player for cellphones.


Absolutely agreed! Ask why Apple has de facto monopoly in the portable music/online media sales business. The reason is not in their great player but the whole hub integrates perfectly in too many aspects.

One can not beat Apple by providing non-integrated bits of some awful download client and messy device syncing application. It must be one-click solution and Songbird is in the position of being cross-platform middleware (between media source and portable device) with some additional nice features.

The reason I don't use Songbird is because it doesn't play well in my media hub which is podcast RSS - X - iPod. The iPod is only there because of the X part.
