DLNA Media server demoed

One of the features of the Samsung Omnia 2 (and even the Samsung Omnia) is the ability to act as a DLNA server. Most people read the words and don’t usually understand what it means, seeing it just as a tick box on the feature list. 

As Wikipedia says:

DLNA intends to cut through the problems inherent in using digital media between different consumer electronic devices. For example a DLNA compliant TV will interoperate with a DLNA compliant PC to play music, photos or videos.

The technology is actually very interesting, as can be seen in the demo video below, showing a DLNA server running on a HTC Touch Pro in action.

Pretty cool, isn’t it.

Lucky Sprint users can download the Titan platform for their Windows Mobile smartphones to enable these capabilities in their existing devices here.
