Buy Music From Your Mobile Phone
Napster To Go will be available on the new Audiovox smartphone SMT5600 from AT&T Wireless. For $14.95 a month, you can download whatever is available on Napster, but you are "renting" the songs, while you have a subscription, they are not yours to keep. In theory, ahem.
The Audiovox has a whopping 28.5 mb of memory so you can download about 6 songs. The memory can be expanded with mini SD cards, however.
AT&T is also offering mobile downloads of songs through their mMode music store. I'm not sure I understand the point of this. You can purchase the music through your phone, but you can't listen to it, not even a sample. Why wouldn't you wait until you got home?
