I am confused ... is Songbird releasing a client for the n900? This page has been up for a few months. I've been eagerly awaiting a download, but cannot find the link:

Does anyone have any ideas here?

The media player with the n900 works well, but it doesn't connect to It isn't a deal breaker, but it would be a nice to have. Songbird seems to run better than Rhythmbox and offers a cleaner, more polished look.

Thanks, Walter

you mean an app that runs on the n900? i think that page just shows devices that the Songbird PC application can sync to. i don't know for sure tho. (if you are looking for an app for your phone, this question will be closed; smartphone apps are offtopic on this site.) – quack quixote Feb 27 '10 at 6:22
that's unfortunate. I'd really like to have transparent integration with all of those things. – Walter White Mar 10 '10 at 21:06

That page signifies the device to which Songbird can sync with. Meaning if you want to sync your music tracks between your laptop and your N900.

Songbird is not a mobile application, it's a desktop application which runs on Windows/Mac/Linux.

I'd suggest you install Songbird on your computer, then use Songbird to administer your music collection on your phone. Songbird is a great application.

Thanks I figured as much, but was hoping for more. – Walter White Apr 6 '10 at 1:48
Totally, well there are some interesting things being done with the Banshee music player. Integrating it into an overall interface, this might be a stepping stone to putting apps like Banshee and Songbird on Tablets, and smart phones. – wonea Jun 1 '10 at 15:09
