Puretracks recently announced that it will be offering its DRM-free music store to users of BlackBerry smartphones. The store will provide tracks encoded in AAC and AAC+ file formats at 64kbps bit rates. The service will be compatible with BlackBerry 8100 Pearls, 8300 Curves, and the 8800 series smartphones. Puretracks has songs from Universal, Sony BMG, Warner, EMI, and independent labels from around the world in its catalog. The service will launch on April 1 in the U.S., with other markets planned at later dates. For now, users will download via their standard data connections, but Puretracks will support Wi-Fi downloads in future releases. Pricing for the music was not immediately revealed.

All of my music is 192kbps so I don't forsee using that service at all.
64kbps music sounds like trash. I wouldn't listen to it, let alone pay for it.
192kbps? all of mine are at either 320kbps or in FLAC. 🙂

Hooray for DRM-free music!

I must be one of the few people who doesn't mind paying for music. BUT I have a Zune, a SanDisk MP3 player, and a smartphone (right now the Q9m but I'll be moving back to a blackberry). When I buy a song I want to be able to play it on all devices AND edit it down and use it as a ringtone. It can be done with stuff downloaded from Zune, but it's a pain.

I'm using up my Zune points and when they're gone, it's Amazon MP3 and maybe Puretracks all the way!
