AT&T Partners With eMusic For Cellular Download Service
AT&T Wireless has partnered with eMusic to deliver a new wireless music download service dubbed eMusic Mobile. Each song costs $1.50 and can only be purchased in bundles of five songs for $7.50. AT&T subscribers will have access to the entire 2.7 million-strong eMusic catalog.
Like other mobile download services, each track is a dual-download, meaning one copy formatted for the mobile phone will be sent over the air, while another copy is available for download to the PC. Unlike other services, eMusic Mobile contains no DRM protections.
AT&T currently has four phones available with the service, three from Samsung and one from Nokia. The carrier plans to add up to 20 phones by the end of the year.
