Rumor: RIM Strikes BlackBerry Music Deal With Top Record Company – 2 More Closing Soon

BlackBerry Music

We have heard quite a few rumors about a BlackBerry Music service powered by BBM but the rumors have always been light on details. Now we have marginally more information from CNET (Thanks Mark) which heard from their sources that RIM is definitely working on a BlackBerry Music service. Supposedly RIM has already inked a deal with one of the four major record companies. They are also close to signing with two of the others. The source also said that a beta test version of the service could be coming out in the next few weeks.

I think this BlackBerry Music service could be really cool if RIM integrates it well with BBM. Maybe letting you even share songs over BBM. What do you think? Would you use a music service app from RIM? I am still curious to know if it will be a streaming or download based service.

  1. Honestly I think I would rather they had partnered with Amazon MP3. Maybe I’ll feel differently once I see their service in action…I don’t know.

  2. I think this would be so cool. Yet at the same time another service I have to worry about. I hope the app be able to use multiple cloud providers.

  3. they need to center more products around BBM and looks like they are doing that.

    hopefully next will be BBM Video Chat

  4. Noting really has made me buy music, I prefer Slacker or Pandora (maybe I’m just lazy but the time it would take to assemble a music library that matches them, I don’t have). Maybe I go with BBM Music who knows.

  5. Maybe it’s going to be using BlackBerry Pushcast. Unlike iTunes streaming media – Whooptie Dooo…

  6. if me and my bbm friends could share music with each other, that would be really cool. Imagine having access to all the songs my friends have that would be thousands of songs and since its a service i would assume you could refresh you list and so could your friends so you would always have new music and your old favorites.

    might be just a dream but why not

  7. They should combine all of these music services into streaming service with the option to buy or download music for offline use.

  8. Hop it hits the beta zone soon so we can see just how it is going to work
