Sprint Music Store Passes Million Downloads

Sprint today said that their cellular based music service known as the Sprint Music Store had achieved its millionth song download since going live Oct. 24 of last year. Over 320,000 songs from a variety of major publishing labels are available for download.

The Sprint Music Store, said Sprint, allows customers to browse, preview and purchase songs for download to their mobile phones. Features of the Sprint Music Store also include a cost of $2.50 per song, with a second song copy available for download to a computer and the ability to burn their music to a CD using Windows Media Player.

“The popularity of the Sprint Music Store is due largely to its ability to instantly deliver the songs people want when they want them on their Sprint phone, the one device that is likely always with them,” said Jeff Hallock, vice president, product marketing for Sprint, in a statement.
