Blackberry and 7Digital team up for music downloads

7Digital and RIM have teamed up to offer Blackberry users music downloads directly to their mobile phone for the first time.The service will be availa

The service will be available via an application downloaded through Blackberry's App World, and will offer around six million songs to users in the UK, America. Canada, Italy, Germany, France and Spain according to The Telegraph.

It is thought that most of the downloaded tracks will be priced at around 79p and will be DRM-free, so you'll be able to move them onto your MP3 player and computer as you wish.

The application will go up against services like iTunes on the iPhone, and Nokia's unlimited Comes With Music service, as the company tries to move its image away from the sole business market.

RIM is also attempting to do this with the introduction of more consumer-based handsets, none more than the new Blackberry Storm 2, which has had more specs picked up today by Boy Genius Report.

An update of the rather flawed original Storm, the handset is set to include the much-missed Wi-fi from the original, lose the annoyingly unreliable clicky touchscreen in favour of a straight up capacitive touchscreen but disappointingly keep the same 3.2 megapixel camera.

We'll keep you up to date on any more specs we get on the Storm 2, but in the meantime check out our hands on video with the original and let us know what you think about the 7Digital team up below.
