Amazon Preloads Music Store App on First Android phone

By Jason Ankeny

Internet retail giant Amazon.com announced its Amazon MP3 digital music store will arrive pre-loaded on the T-Mobile G1 when the phone--the first-ever device powered by Google's Android mobile operating system--hits retail. According to Amazon, the store offers more than 6 million DRM-free MP3 songs from all four major labels and thousands of independent labels. The MP3s are compatible with virtually any music-enabled device and can be managed with any music software.

Amazon will optimize a new version of the Amazon MP3 application for the T-Mobile G1--users downloading music from the store will require a WiFi connection, but they may search, browse and listen to samples anywhere across T-Mobile's network footprint.

Amazon MP3 prices its 100 bestselling songs at 89 cents, with more than 1 million more songs available at the same price point; its 100 bestselling albums are $8.99 or less, with most albums priced from $5.99 to $9.99, and more than 80 percent of its album catalog priced at $8.99 or less.
