Google Allegedly Preparing Apple iTunes Competitor

Posted on Feb 18 2011 - 11:35pm by Richard Sharp

It seems Google is intent on dominating all electronic space as rumours start emerging that they are to launch their own music subscription channel which could go into direct competition with Apple. Like most good rumours this one has yet to be confirmed or denied by Apple but it comes from another giant, Motorola.

Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha spilled the beans when delivering a speech at MWC 2011. Jha was giving a sales pitch on the strengths of the Xoom tablet and future developments which he says will include both music and video services from Google. What services? We hear you ask and we’d currently have to answer, there aren’t any!

Journalists at the event asked the same question and after a short pause he explained about some additions to Honeycomb, he said “it (Honeycomb) adds video services and music services.” This supports claims that Android where in talks with music labels in Autumn 2010 and strengthen Google’s previous claims that they would include music in their OS strategy.

Do you think it’s too late for G to get in the music game? Or will the search giant just push on through?
