25 September 2007 @ 15:18Amazon to Rival iTunes Music Store

Amazon’s newly launched music store (Amazon MP3) claims to have the world’s largest selection of DRM-free music. As with iTunes Music Store’s DRM-free downloads, these songs will play in most MP3 players. The difference being, iTunes’ DRM-free songs are AAC and $1.29 each (currently only music from EMI), while Amazon’s are MP3 and $0.99 each ($0.89 each for top 100 songs). As of now, there are 2 million songs available from Amazon MP3. Amazon’s download application is needed to download albums and is currently available for Window and Mac, with a Linux version coming soon. Singles may be downloaded directly from a browser.

Amazon MP3 may be iTunes’ first real competition.
