The official BlackBerry Blog took a few minutes today to run through the two new music-centered apps announced today for the PlayBook. The apps include the 7digital Music Store and the BlackBerry Podcast app for PlayBook, both of which will come preloaded at launch in Canada and the United States. RIM’s official blog also pointed out a couple neat facts about the 7digital store:
- 7digital Music Store offers over 13 million songs, and tracks are available at prices starting as low as $0.79 with bitrates up to 320 kbps (DRM free).
- As Ryan mentioned, 7digital Music Store content is stored in the cloud via a digital music locker for easy portability across devices and to help against accidental loss.
- 7digital Music Store includes a recommendation engine that features content based upon recent browsing and purchase activity.
So take a few minutes and enjoy the latest PlayBook video from RIM…
