Research In Motion Announces BBM Music

We’ve heard of BBM Music back in July and then later on details emerged of Research in Motion’s new social music sharing and discovery service, launched today by the Canadian manufacturer.

BBM Music is a cloud-based service that allows for music discovery by creating a huge community-based music library. Here’s the deal: at any moment, you’re allowed to have 50 of your favorite songs stored on your phone, with the ability to swap out 25 of them every month. You can grow the number of songs available to you by adding BBM Music friends, as then you’ll have access to their 50 songs.

Of course, you can comment on songs, create playlists, and listen to full versions of your friend’s songs, all made possible by cloud music service provider Omnifone, the one behind content management, music hosting and reporting functions of BBM Music.

While the application is free, the service itself will cost $4.99 per month and a closed beta trial of the service is starting today in Canada, the United States and the UK. The full offering is expected to go live later this year with availability in 18 countries.
