WANT to buy high quality, fully licensed, DRM-free music online? Check out infogo.com, a new online music store from UK-based cloud services provider Prodigium Mobile that is now open to consumers here as well as in Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia and India.
According to CEO Bill Duvall, Prodigium Mobile has licensed music content through its association with 7digital, a leading digital media provider that operates globally. Through it, Prodigium Mobile has secured music rights to all leading labels including Sony Music, Warner Music, Universal Music and EMI.
“infogo.com is accessible via smartphones, tablets or personal computers. Android and Blackberry device users can download and install an application directly from the infogo.com website. The apps will also be available from Google Play store and Blackberry App World store soon. PC and Mac users can directly connect to infogo.com using a web browser,” says Duvall in Kuala Lumpur recently.
infogo.com’s pricing for high quality 320kbps MP3 downloads vary from country to country, but is about US99 cents (RM3.20) per song. In Malaysia, the average is about RM3 per song.
“When you purchase a song, you can immediately download a song to your Android or Blackberry phone or stream it to your iPhone. Later, you may log in to your cloud locker again, and download or stream the same song to a maximum of nine other connected devices. In the near future, you can even download the song directly to your car stereo, courtesy of Clarion,” adds Duvall.
The Android-driven Clarion Mirage car stereo will offer access to infogo.com when it is available in new cars. “As we announced on April 7, Clarion is our exclusive car licensee in Asia. When the Clarion Mirage is available, you should have access to infogo.com in your car.”
Prodigium Mobile is also looking at the possibilities of making download cards available in the market.
