After some discussion on the Advocacy mailing list, I decided to start drafting a letter to Nokia here to convince Nokia to implement support for Ogg Vorbis (possibly more Xiph.org technologies, but Vorbis is the most important to me) in their mobile phones. The draft here is inspired by the MailOgging page. This is a letter to Nokia, but letters to other manufacturers of mobile phones or media players should follow.

Contents of the letter

  • What we are asking Nokia to do
  • The reasons why Ogg Vorbis should be supported
  • Why it shouldn't be a problem to implement support

Sending the letter

Preferably this letter would be sent by the Xiph.Org Foundation, not under a personal title. And preferably it should not be addressed to their helpdesk, but a person inside Nokia who has authority on matters like this.

The letter

<date> <salutation>

The Xiph.Org Foundation would like to ask your attention for the missing support of the Ogg Vorbis audio codec in Nokia's products. We would like to ask you to consider implementing support for the Ogg Vorbis codec in Nokia's products.
