Microsoft music service by Christmas?
Reuters is reporting that Microsoft is gearing up for a launch of its new digital music player and music service by Christmas.
I said in a previous post that one area where Microsoft might look for advantage would be in more advanced discovery and sharing tools, and it sounds like this will be a feature of the new service, which will also allow consumers to download music onto devices wirelessly.
The project is being driven by Robbie Bach, president of Microsoft's entertainment and devices division in December, working with J. Allard, vice president of its Xbox team. The Xbox experience will prove crucial.
