Cingular Launches Billboard Mobile
Billboard Mobile is the latest music service to hit the wireless scene, offering music and entertainment news, local concert information and access to Billboard-featured master tones. The service will be offered exclusively from Cingular Wireless for a limited time.
Billboard Mobile ties in with Billboard's Website and will give wireless customers access to music samples, images and music news. Mforma is powering the service.
In addition to the above-mentioned content, Billboard Mobile also offers purchase options tied to each song, including ringtones and master tones.
As part of the service, music fans also can opt to receive a weekly message detailing the top songs. The SMS message will include a path to purchase ringtones.
Cingular Wireless is offering the new service for a monthly subscription fee of $3.99. Polyphonic ringtones can be had for $1.99 each, while master tones run $2.99 each.
Cingular has exclusive rights to offer Billboard Mobile to its customer base for the next month, before the service is expanded to other carriers.
