Amazon’s music download service is now available for UK mobile phones that run Android operating system. The Amazon MP3 service will put Amazon and Google in direct competition with Apple’s iPhone, which allows users to download multimedia from the iTunes store. The Amazon MP3 store offers a choice of more than 9m tracks.
Reports from The Daily Telegraph reveal some users of Google’s Nexus One phones in the UK have the app preinstalled and can already buy tracks in pounds sterling. However, the UK’s Motorola Milestone phone, which also runs the Android operating system, is unable to access the Amazon MP3 app. Some are suggesting the app is only available to customers running Android OS 2.1, however Amazon in the UK is declining to comment on the news.
