BlackBerrys have been crying out for direct, over–the–air music downloads in order to compete with the might of the iPhone. Fortunately, DRM–hater 7Digital is on hand to put its massive MP3 catalogue onto the world’s favourite emailers. Read on to find out what BlackBerry and 7Digital are cheffing up.
RIM’s fight to turn the BlackBerry into a mainstream mobile continues apace. With the Storm 2 on its way and the mighty Shazam landing on their original touchscreen model, 7Digital has now rocked up and said it’ll help take the fight to Apple and Nokia.
The new 7Digital download service is coming “soon” to BlackBerry App World. That means you can snag the app and then splash needless amounts of cash on below–par late period Michael Jackson singles and the latest albums from everyone from The Maccabees to Florence + The Machine.
Prices are said to start at 79p, although there’s no word on whether 7Digital’s excellent £5 album line–up will be present and correct on your BlackBerry. Here’s hoping. What we do know is that 7Digital will be sticking to their DRM–free policy so you can transfer tunes to any device you’ve got knocking about. Here that, Nokia?
