Posted on May 29, 2012. Filed under: Technology | Tags: , , |

Samsung has launched a new musicservice on the Galaxy S3, its flagship smartphone.

Samsung has launched a new music service on the Galaxy S3, itsflagship smartphone that rolls out across Europe, to boost its appeal in competition with top devices like Apple’s iPhone.
TJ Kang, senior vice president of Samsung Electronics’ Media Solution Center, said it was the first time the company had created its own music service from scratch.
“Samsung is not known for our content services; we make good hardware products but we haven’t done much in the content space but that’s changing,” he told Reuters.
“We are doing it to create a better experience for our users. There are things we could do better if we have complete control over all of the service.”
The company has previouslyrebranded existing music and video services on its devices, where they competewith music stores from the likes of Google and Amazon and streaming services suchas Spotify and Pandora Media.
Fred Huet at Greenwich Consulting said the mobile phone was increasingly at the heart of a lot more mediaconsumption, and Apple had established a formidable lead.
“A lot of the other players are still trying to find the magic formula that can use tocounter iTunes ,” he said.
Samsung’s Music Hub Premium allows users to upload music to the cloud and access it from a PC and up to five mobile devices as well as stream songs for 9.99 pounds or euros a month, said Daren Tsui, chiefexecutive of developer mPpot, which Samsung bought earlier this month.
Users will also be able to buy tunes from a 19 million song catalogue, with prices comparable to iTunes, he said.
