Apparently Samsung is trying to compete with Apple on all grounds of digital entertainment mediums. First smartphones, then tablets, software, and now a head straight music platform attack.
A revamped music experience with “Samsung Music Hub”is promising to compete with Apple’s fiercely popular iTunes library of songs.
Samsung has partnered up with company called 7digital, carrying 19million songs in its library. That’s very competitive compared to iTunes 20million songs. They will offer 2 packages, free with random streaming as well as a premium package giving you 2 things: unlimited streaming and 100GB of cloud storage to save/upload your songs.
These features are available and promoted in EU countries for now. Watch out iTunes, competitors are rising.
Maybe now’s the time to create an application that doesn’t carry music, movies, and apps together. Or better yet, sue all those people who even have a concept of an “App market”, oh that’s right you never created an environment like that yourself, pity. Check this link, and verify by going to “Application Stores” section.
Anyway, let’s wait and see how the north American market reacts.
