Google is planning to launch a online music download store and a digital music locker, which enables the mobile users to download and listen to their songs any time.Which seems to coincide with the format used by apple. When Google showed off the idea of Music at this year’s I/O conference, people were eagerly awaiting its official unveiling later in the year.
Unfortunately, despite the fact it’s already September, we’re still waiting. But, if the sources speaking to Reuters are indeed accurate, we don’t have much longer to wait at all, as this Christmas may indeed be a holiday to remember.
The music industry hopes to benefit from a battle for control of the mobile phone and computer desktop between Apple and Google as both technology giants go head-to-head in a wide range of media and consumer technology areas including online TV and movies, mobile phones, software and even advertising.
In the past, we had actually heard that Google was getting ready to launch Google Music in sync with their latest build for Android, or Android 3.0. And, with this new report from two separate sources, it looks like that is right on track. The sources also report that none other than Andy Rubin is at the head of the charge to get Google Music off the rack, and into the hands of consumers all over the world.
So, this Christmas might be Google musical!
