Samsung's Music Hub Launches
Samsung Launches Music Hub, offering the Ultimate Mobile Music Service
It was clear that Samsung was dipping a toe in the music market, and now it's officially landed. Music Hub will launch with the GSIII in the UK, France and Germany. It's fair to say the electronics giant will be trampling on a fair number of toes, with Music Hub offering both streaming - from 7 Digital's catalog of 19 million - as well as recommendations, and a 100GB iTunes Match-esque cloud service.
You'll need to trump up €9.99 (about $16) if you want the premium features (unlimited streaming from the catalog and the online storage of your library,) while the free option will let you listen to matched / purchased tracks anywhere (from your phone or the web interface). Samsung's clearly taking a holistic approach with Music Hub, and it'll be a standard feature on its phones going forward.
