This has the be the best bit of news I have heard all week. Puretracks is a pretty big digital music provider which has contracts with the likes of Universal, Sony, EMI, and Warner so they have all they need to bring this baby to life.
The best part is that Puretracks will be DRM free. On the flip side they will be 64k AAC/AAC+ compressed format. This is a tradeoff since the files are half the size of MP3 files but they do take a hit in audio quality. Regularly AAC has higher quality than MP3 at the same bitrate. But with a 64K bitrate AAC file compared to the regular 128K for MP3 files I am sure people will notice the difference. (Cant promise )
The new store will be called Puretracks Mobile Edition and will be available for the BlackBerry 8100, 8300, & 8800 series devices. They will be adding WiFi download capabilities at a later date.
Puretracks will be releasing the Mobile Music Store at CTIA Wireless on April 1st.
