Google Music: A Christmas Gift from Google?
Looks like Google tends to add up an extra Merry Christmas this Holiday Season. Rumor is, Google Music will launch late this year its own music download service.
Apple shocked the earth when they released their new set of revamped devices. But rumors say that Google will give us a Christmas present that we’ll surely love. Google’s Andy Rubin revealed that they are planning a holiday-season launch for their new music download service.
According to sources, Rubin, Google’s VP for Engineering, is in deep talk with record labels and “hopes to have the service up and running by Christmas.”
A record label exec, which remains anonymous, confirmed that Google is really in talks with labels about the launch of this service.
“Finally here’s an entity with the reach, resources and wherewithal to take on iTunes as a formidable competitor by tying it into search and Android mobile platform. What you’ll have is a very powerful player in the market that’s good for the music business,” the source said.
As of the moment, the fame of Android phones have an integration with Amazon’s MP3 store. If Google can put on perfection to this service just like the mobile-desktop syncing features just like Google I/O then they might just snatch an iTunes Killer app on their minds. A big success to Android Market.
Google began this space for music lovers last year when they launched music search feature which opened the music industry to the search engine.
Apple revitalize the music scene with the launch of iTunes 10 and social network Ping. But we know that it wasn’t as hot as it used to be.
Let’s see if Google can beat Apple.View Article Source »
