Is BBM Music DOA (Dead on Arrival?)
BlackBerry just announced BBM Music and I have to admin I am not 100% what I should think of it? Let’s take a look at the video that they have created to introduce BlackBerry music:
RIM describes BBM Music like this:
First, let’s clarify one misconception: with a BBM Music Premium subscription, you can access far more than 50 songs. To start your BBM Music profile, you can choose up to 50 songs from the millions in our catalog. But, that’s just the beginning! Add more music to your library by adding friends and get access to your BBM friends’ music profile songs. The more BBM friends with BBM Music Premium subscriptions you have, the more songs you can share! And the sharing goes both ways. Your BBM friends with BBM Music Premium subscriptions will have access to your profile music too, and can access it anytime.
So, let’s say you have 10 BBM friends with BBM Music subscriptions, and they each have 50 songs in their music profiles. From those friends alone, plus the 50 songs you downloaded to start your profile, you could have 550 songs in no time, right on your BlackBerry® smartphone!
Is it really necessary to explain a new service like this? Maybe the service is too complicated if you have to explain it like that?
