Cingular’s not going to put the cart before the horse when it comes to their forthcoming wireless music download
service, but today they confirmed that they are indeed cooking one up (not that anyone’s surprised). But since they’re
not even expecting to light up that new HSDPA
network of theirs until the end of this year, it follows that their music download service won’t launch until 2006. Of
course, they’re probably not in a position to disclose pricing, but their COO said it would cost only “slightly higher”
than what consumers currently pay for a track on iTunes, so, you know, expect it to be in the range of $1.00 to $13.00
a track. They also informally announced their openly-secret push-to-talk service, which we happen to know a few things
about, and will hook you up more on later today.
