Melodeo Looks to Stream iTunes Music
While Apple bills the iPhone as one of the only ways to get iTunes on your mobile phone, mobile multimedia company Melodeo is working on a way to change that. The company said Tuesday it will offer a service that allows users to use information stored in their iTunes playlists and then play songs on their phones. Since it is a streaming service, it will likely cost much less then downloading actual copies.
Melodeo has not decided on final prices for the offering, which is currently in beta. It is carefully considering the current copyright laws surrounding digital music to ensure any service would not run into legal troubles later. A final version of the service is expected within the next three months, possibly with the backing of a major wireless carrier, it told Reuters.
