Microsoft to go after iPod market?

In a report today in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Todd Bishop discusses Microsoft’s plans to take on Apple in both the downloadable and portable music markets (iTunes Music Store and iPod). Last November Microsoft said that it will be launching an MSN online music service sometime this year, and Bishop says that the company is planning to release a new line of portable devices. “And later this week, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Microsoft is expected to give new details about a line of portable devices that, in the view of some analysts, could give the popular iPod an extra measure of competition,” notes the story.
