    RIM Announces BBM Music-A New Social Music Sharing and Discovery Service
    New Cloud-Based Music Service Makes Music a Social Experience

    WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 25, 2011) - Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ:RIMM)(TSX:RIM) today announced BBM Music, a new BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) service for socially connected music fans.

    BBM Music is an easy-to-use cloud-based service that enables social and viral music discovery by allowing users to build an evolving, community-based music library that is shared amongst their BBM Music friends. The size of the music library continues to grow as new friends join the community and each user can select music from a catalog with millions of songs from leading music companies - Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group and EMI.

    "More than 45 million customers already love the social communication benefits delivered through BBM and we are thrilled to be extending the experience into a uniquely social and interactive music service," said Mike Lazaridis, President and Co-CEO at Research In Motion. "We have partnered with leading music companies to provide a 'full track' music sharing and discovery experience that will provide users with quality music on demand and allow them to connect with friends on a whole new level."
    Its a start in the right direction.

    This would be a good idea if it was about half the price and more people used bbm.

    Unfortunately its too expensive and nobody is on bbm anymore.

    I disagree. I have plenty of BBM friends, and $4.99 is only 10 cents per song per month. I don't think that's too bad. I want to see the full details before I decide for sure though.

    Useless service, as if we need to add more costs in our lives. We already pay enough for BIS and the BlackBerry phone itself, gas, house rent, credit cards, school for kids, food, no thank you.
