Napster Launches Over The Air Music Downloads For Cellphones in Japan


Napster is rolling out its over-the-air (OTA) music service on Japan’s NTT Docomo. The service lets Napster To Go subscribers download music onto compatible cellphones (so far, the 904i series). All songs downloaded onto cellphones can then be transferred to compatible music players and PCs. Can iTunes do that?

This is fun and all, and something many people wish the iPhone would be able to do right out of the box, but until Napster brings it over here, it might as well not exist. The monthly subscription fee seems like overkill if you’re the type of person who only downloads (well, legally) one or two songs per month. But good luck to Napster and all its future endeavors.
