Dowloading Track To Cell A Hit In Europe
Wired.com reports that, “the ability to download complete tracks directly over cell-phone networks to mobile phones is becoming a reality in Europe. O2 Music, the music arm of U.K.-based international telecom operator mmO2, has started offering songs for download in Germany and the United Kingdom.
The emerging trend of selling full-length songs directly to mobile phones in Europe has been triggered by better understanding and cooperation between mobile phone operators, handset manufacturers and record labels. In addition, the launch by year’s end of the new third-generation networks is expected to give consumers a range of new services in which music downloads will play a major part.”
