Unlike the iPhone 4's limited codec support, Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 platform will offer support for more codecs to make the platform a robust multimedia platform. Audio codecs "WAV, MP3, WMA Lossless, WMA Pro, WMA Standard v9, AAC-LC, HE-AAC v1, HE-AAC v2, Adaptive Multi-Rate Narrow Band, Adaptive Multi-Rate ide Band, and Qcelp" in addition to video codecs "WMV (simple profile, main profile and advanced profile), WMV v9, MPEG-4 Part 2 (simple profile, advanced simple profile), MPEG-4 Part 10, H.263 and DivX (4.x, 5.x and 6.x)" will be supported according to IntoMobile. Coupled that with the Zune interface and we have a pretty strong competitor to iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android.
