“After the successful launch of Apple’s iPhone, AT&T is readying a new wireless service which would allow its customers to download music from eMusic on their mobile phones,” Max Brenn reports for eFluxMedia.
“AT&T’s fee per song of $1.50 is below Verizon’s $1.99 but higher than Sprint’s, which is $0.99,” Brenn reports.
MacDailyNews Note: AT&T customers can subscribe to download five tracks a month for $7.49, with additional packages of five songs available for the same price.
“Bad news though: the craved gadget that has shaken the entire telecom industry, aka the iPhone, will not work with the new services, despite having an iPod incorporated in it,” Brenn reports. “Handsets from Samsung or Nokia however will be compatible.”
“AT&T said eMusic would allow customers to preview selections before they commit to a purchase. As with rival services, users can download a copy of each song purchased to their computer at no extra charge,” Brenn reports.
