RIM to purchase Music Gremlin?

Comments

musicgremlin.jpgYeah, we hadn’t heard much about MusicGremlin before either. Turns out it’s a wireless MP3 player that allows for live downloads while you’re on the go. This report has “rumour” painted all over it, but it looks like RIM might be buying MusicGremlin. What does that mean? Hello, wi-fi enabled music blaring BlackBerry. But like I said – all rumours at this point, so no need for salivating just yet. More as it develops (if it even does).

    This would be a very bold move by RIM and a great one at that.

    The idea of being able to download music into your mobile device wirelessly is one that is begging to happen and will eventually become huge. All that’s stopping it now are the fact that no one has really worked out a usable solution.

    If RIM would do this and get it right, it would be big win. Otherwise, it will be left up to Apple to be the one to master this solution.

    Actually Thought, I believe the big impediment to this is the carriers, and them wanting a revenue stream from all content on the device, not a technical one. Most phones these days could buy songs over the air just like you do a ringtone, however, no one has worked out how to give the carrier a cut and still make a profit.
