Dell DJ and Dell Music Store Details
CNet provides some rumored details to the upcoming service from Dell.
According to their sources, MusicMatch will be launching their online music service next week, and will be providing the Dell Music Store with their own branded version of the service.
Ironically, MusicMatch currently provides the PC jukebox software bundled with the PC version of the Apple iPod. Apple has been working on its own version of iTunes for Windows, however, and is due by the year's end.
CNet's article comments on the industry feeling that an integrated jukebox/store application is the way to go... and reports that BuyMusic.com is also working on it's version of a standalone jukebox/store application.
Meanwhile, according to a statement from Apple, Dell is also rebranding a Creative MP3 player as the upcoming Dell DJ:
- It appears that Dell is re-branding one of the second-tier music services that will be announced soon, just like they are re-branding Creative's MP3 player. There is little original here
