NEW YORK (Reuters) - Cingular Wireless is expected to begin
partnering with online music services, including Napster Inc., Yahoo
Inc.'s Yahoo Music and eMusic, to launch a music service on its cell
phone network, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday.
The move by Cingular, jointly owned by AT&T and BellSouth, may set
the stage for a battle with Apple Computer's iPod. The service would
work on cell phones that double as music players.
Cingular's service initially will support transferring music from
personal computers to cell phones using a cable.
Users will be able to transfer music acquired from subscription
services like Napster to Go, Yahoo's Y Music Unlimited or eMusic,
which is owned by Dimensional Associates Inc., the Journal reported.
They will also be able to transfer songs ripped from CDs or
downloaded in the MP3 and Windows Media formats, the paper said,
citing sources familiar with the matter.
