Microsoft will cooperate with Toshiba, Victor, DoCoMo and five other companies to offer music and video distribution services and digital audio players to compete against Apple.
The companies will develop a portable music and video player for the Japanese market, according to a Microsoft press release dated yesterday. The device would challenge Apple's iPod digital music player, the best-selling device that plays songs and other media downloaded from the Internet or copied from compact discs.

Microsoft will develop the software while consumer electronics makers Toshiba and Victor, will make the portable device.
