Samsung unveils its Music Hub

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, August 15, 2012

Samsung unveils its Music Hub.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     There is no shortage of music services available for mobile devices from Spotify, Rhapsody, eMusic, Amazon, Google and many more.   And now Samsung has entered the picture with a service initially being offered on its Galaxy S3 mobile phones.    Samsung Mobile Director of Product Marketing Ryan Bidan…

“Music Hub for us is a service that combines a number of different elements.  So, what you’ve got is a scan and match service.  If you’ve got your library of songs today on your home PC or your other mobile devices, what we’ll actually do is we’ll catalog that for you, and instead of you having to upload all of those songs to have them available, for mobile, what we actually do is, if you’ve already got them in the library, what we do is you don’t have to upload them again. We know that you own the song and you have rights to it, so you can download it and use it on your mobile devices.”

There’s also a music store and subscription service, with the premium version priced at 9.99 a month.  You can find us with archives, interviews and more at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
