mSpot Takes Mobile Music Straight to Consumers
Today mSpot announced mSpot.com, a new web site where consumers can create and download ringtones for their mobile phones. Consumers buy a song and use mSpot's online tools to select a 30-second chunk of the song, which is then turned into a downloadable ringtone. Right now, the service can be used by AT&T and Sprint customers, though mSpot says other carriers will be supported soon. mSpot has over 400,000 songs from which to choose, and ringtones will cost $2.99 to create and download.
