RIM will launch Blackberry Messenger Music

Recently BlackBerry manufacturer Research in Motion (RIM), exploring to enter the streaming music market with BBM music. RIM's new service will soon be introduced to BlackBerry users.

BBM Music will be linked with BlackBerry Messenger (BBM), which lets users connect and share BBM music with contacts in their BlackBerry Messenger. BBM Music Users will also be able to listen to songs from the contact list of friends in their BBM.

Therefore, RIM also makes the tagline: more friends = more music.

But, the services paid U.S. $ 4.9 thousand per month should work hard to earn interest at market streaming music. Because BBM Music users will be limited only to select 50 songs from millions of songs that exist in the catalog RIM.

Mobile music application like Pandora and Spotify has attracted the majority of iPhone users and Android smartphone. However, until now BlackBerry platform untouched by the music application.

Eliot Van Buskirk, editor of music technology blog, Evolver.fm, thinking that this vulnerability could be exploited BBM Music to successful. "Very clever the way they built it on the mechanisms of social networks that already exist," said Van Buskirk. "People do not think the BlackBerry as an entertainment platform, but I've heard from various developers of music application, they like to develop a music application for the BlackBerry platform because it does not have many competitors."

But the service is still widely criticized, mainly because of restrictions on 50 songs to choose. "This service is like intended to direct users to invite people at random through the Blackberry Messenger, so they can get more songs," wrote one customer. "But I prefer to consider the social aspects, rather than just a matter of friends to get a song."
Blackberry Messenger Music is expected to be launched later this year.
