But they will need a special mobile phone or a Pocket PC hand-held device equipped with RealNetworks software, and they’ll be charged normal usage fees to download digital data. With streaming, the content is downloaded as it plays. The cost of downloading data varies by wireless carrier but can range from 5 cents to 40 cents a kilobyte, according to company price lists.”
