    A couple of questions:
     
    1.  Are there any built-in sounds available that we could expose through our application other than the ability to play a tone?
     
    2.  We usually use MP3 format tones to reduce JAR file size and save space but the only format supported appears to be WAV files.  These are large enough that we can only include a few sounds before the JAR file gets too big to fit.  Any other suggestions for how to compress the data or use alternative formats that we are not aware of?

    Since the devices are by definition network connected, the streaming audio support is going to be the main mechanism for providing rich app audio.
     
    There are of course sound fles on the device, but so far these have not been exposed to midlets for use.  It's something that is possible - say via URIs - your feedback on the business impact and desired access mechanism appreciated.
     
    Similarly with extra audio codecs, currently only the PCM/wav codec is exposed to midlets via the media player, though the device has more onboard for use with telephony (e.g. 729.)  A compelling use-case (and customer opportunity) would be helpful towards prioritizing enhancements in this area.
