Sprint today launched Power Vision, a suite of consumer-oriented services built to leverage the company's growing EV-DO broadband-speed data network. The services include the country's first streaming, high-quality live TV and first over-the-air full-track music downloads. The first two phones available for Power Vision are the Samsung MM-A940 and Sanyo MM-9000, with more to follow by the end of the year. The new Sprint Music Store, powered by Groove Mobile, offers a catalog of over 250,000 songs from EMI, Sony BMG, Warner, and Universal. For $2.50, users get access to a copy of the song in WMA format for their PC, as well as a copy in AAC+ format for the phone that downloads in as little as 30 seconds over the EV-DO network. Power Vision starts at $15 per month, which includes streaming live TV from ABC News Now, a streaming music channel from Sirius, and unlimited web and data access. Premium packages at $20-25 per month include additional TV and music channels. Sprint's EV-DO network is expected to cover an estimated 130 million people by mid-November.
