    Availability of Napster Mobile Service on AT&T Surpasses Previous Projections, Gives More Customers Access to Full-Track Downloads From Wireless Handsets

    Napster and AT&T Inc. today announced the availability of Napster Mobile to more than 13 million AT&T customers, a significant expansion of the service.

    Napster Mobile lets music fans use their handsets to search, browse and download music from Napster's collection of more than 6 million songs -- the industry's largest catalog.

    The service is now available on more than 25 AT&T smartphones and handsets, including the BlackBerry Curve 8310 and the soon to be released BlackBerry Bold. The expansion was made possible by less restrictive digital rights management (DRM) requirements from the labels and Napster's adoption of more flexible technology.

    "Our goal is to connect people with the music they love, no matter where they are," said Chris Gorog, chief executive officer of Napster. "Switching to our new format gives millions of AT&T customers the opportunity to enjoy the best mobile music experience available, in addition to the world's largest catalog of music."

    Mark Collins, vice president of Consumer Products for AT&T's wireless unit, said: "Music fans using our phones are hungry for this capability. As we've worked with Napster to make more phones 'ready to rock,' as we say, we've seen a strong corresponding rise in customers who are adopting Napster Mobile."
    AT&T customers can purchase and wirelessly download full-length songs from Napster Mobile for $1.99 each, which includes a copy that is automatically delivered to the customer's PC. Napster Mobile is also available for a $7.49 monthly subscription, which includes five song downloads per month. Charges for downloads are conveniently billed to customers' AT&T wireless bill.

    Standard usage rates apply and an unlimited data plan is highly recommended. Details on AT&T's data plans can be found at http://www.att.com/.

    Well this is something that I'm going to have to use in my sales pitch at work. Do you know what other devices are on that list of 25?

    That's it. I'm switching as soon as my 2 yrs with TMo is up. I'm tired of everyone else getting all the good mobile media apps.

    Being an AT&T customer certainly does have it's perks, but also it's drawbacks. For instance, without having to modify BBMaps, you can't use it with AT&T. Also, according to www.blackberry.com, AT&T is still on 4.2 OS while everyone else is at 4.5 or higher. They have the 4.6 out for Bold, of course, and we could always download it from another vendor, but AT&T seems so far behind sometimes. :\ It's a tough decision sometimes.

    By the way, I can't wait to get napster on my phone.
