Jamster readies full-song mobile service
Jamster, the direct-to-consumer subscription ringtone provider who hasn't yet been adequately punished for unleashing Crazy Frog on an unsuspecting world, has unveiled the public beta version of a full-song mobile music download service in Germany. Called Jamba Music, the service will offer 500,000 tracks once it emerges from the beta trial. The company has licensing deals with the German divisions of Universal Music Group, SonyBMG, and several independent labels. The service features both subscription and ala carte options. Current subscription plans include a €14.95/month unlimited plan and a €4.99/month plan good for 20 songs a month. Per-song download pricing is €1.29 per track, while a full album will run you €12.95.
