AmazonMP3 Launched: Looks Absolutely Awesome

leave a comment »

Amazon‘s launched what appears to finally look like a good competitor to iTunes. It’s been a long time coming, but Amazon’s got the formula right. They have all DRM-free tracks, so the store is more consistent in iTunes in that respect, prices are cheaper (although there’s variable pricing) and the quality is nice and high: 256kbps MP3 files. There also appears to be some good integration with Windows and Mac OS X. Individual files can be downloaded through the browser, but albums must be downloaded with Amazon’s MP3 downloader (which apparently doesn’t suck).

Unfortunately, it’s not available to us Canucks, and the selection is limited to primarily just EMI and Universal music (but is still one label more than iTunes). Overall though, this looks like a really good service that should finally give iTunes some competition.
