Finally! No more having to find the nearest Starbucks just so you can get that blasted Beyonce song out of your head – now you can download that drivel over 3G!
During today’s MacWorld Keynote Phil Schiller announced that iPhone iTunes downloads are now enabled over 3G, where as they’d been previously limited to WiFi connections only. Audio quality for 3G downloads is identical to that of those downloaded on the full-blown desktop iTunes – as is the price. Some expected the music industry to push for an additional surcharge on mobile downloads, so good on all parties involved for working something out that doesn’t stiff the customers.
