One More iPod Competitor

14 11 2008

In time, MySpace may build a device that competes with Apple’s popular iPod. This is what comes out from a hind dropped by Chris DeWolfe, CEO and co-founder of MySpace. Reuters reported this Friday that at the Web 2.0 summit in SF, DeWolfe said that such a device could possibly be developed by MySpace.

Currently though, the focus of DeWolfe’s company was to be the music service which incepted in September. The music industry is behind MySpace Music in a big way as Universal Music Group, Sony BMG and Warner Music Group are involved.
Edgar Bronfman, CEO, Warner Music says that MySpace was differentitated from Apple’s offering as it gave emphasis to community and sharing as far as music was concerned and was not solely concentrated on straight ahead sales of music or devices.

MySpace is based in Santa Monica and the parent company is News Corp, Fox Interactive Division which operates out of Beverly Hills.
