Qualcomm and doubleTwist bond over Android media streaming

As much as you might love using an Android phone, there are a couple of things even easier as with apples. Media Streaming is a good example, thanks to Apple’s AirPlay protocol.
This could change if a partnership project between the new chip maker Qualcomm and doubleTwist music player fruits. MagicPlay Together they have created a new open standard transmission protocol are waiting OEM incorporated in the next generation of Android smartphones and tablets.

MagicPlay technology is actually based on a concept called Wireless Qualcomm AllJoyn more, connecting compatible (read: Qualcomm) chips creating peer-to-peer short distances.
Wireless connectivity is something doubleTwist knows a thing or two about, having successfully created th AirTwist means wireless synchronization tool to complement standard doubleTwist media player for Android phones. AirTwist connects with a client installed on the PC and updates the media library on your phone, so you always have the most up to date music to listen to.
From here, Qualcomm will begin the uphill battle MagicPlay sell to manufacturers and trying to convince them to use in their applications MagicPlay media instead of the old (and clunkier) DLNA protocol and the new (and considerably more agile) Miracast.
Either way, it is a victory for consumers. After years of wishing the past and current droid could dock as the iPhone, which can finially see something similar to a standard that all manufacturers can adopt both phones and in your home theater and TV, too.
