Research In Motion to bundle 7digital music app on the PlayBook

Canadian mobile phone and tablet manufacturer RIM has announced the popular 7digital Music Store will be a feature of the upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook tablet device. This will offer the ability to purchase music from one of the widest array of collections around today, from artists on Universal Music, EMI, Warner Music and Sony Music.

7digital Music Store will come preinstalled on the PlayBook, with access to more than 13 million MP3s that will be available to either browse, preview or purchase from the software on the RIM tablet with no initial subscription required.

The 320kbps based music is around in single tracks, full albums and even audiobooks, where the software can be used to discover new artists too. The 7digital Music Store can even recommend tracks from listening habits, whilst the music costs are equal to what’s already on offer by the company via the website and in local currencies as well throughout Europe.

7digital’s applications are already found on Android and BlackBerry devices, along with being available in an HTML5 compatible format that works on the iPhone and iPad from the largest userbase of any international MP3 music retailer.
