Music is a way of life, and while online music stores and distribution have been around for the past few years, it's only the start of something even bigger. Convergence has played a huge role in the development of mobile phones, and it was inevitable that manufacturers such as Nokia and Motorola would understand the consumers' growing demands for an easy to access platform to download and enjoy music on-the-go. And thus, enters Motorola with its MotoMusic service. With the acquisition of the Singapore based music download site Soundbuzz earlier this year in January, the stage is set for Motorola to embark on an integrated music service for their upcoming devices.
Held at the Conrad Centennial on the 20th of August, Motorola gave a detailed walkthrough of their product strategy and planning, with the introduction of its upcoming five mobile devices, segmented to achieve the demands of the varying consumer needs. Just short of two months ago, the joint collaboration by Motorola and Kodak came to fruition in the form of the first 5-megapixel camera phone under the Motorola branding, the Motorola ZINE ZN5 . Adding to the list are four other devices that's slated to be released in Singapore in the ensuing months, ranging from the business-centric Motorola MING A1600, to the phone-first series of devices that includes the Motorola EM330, Motorola W388 and finally Motorola VE538.
