Motorola has acquired Singapore based music downloads site Soundbuzz.
Soundbuzz offers online music purchases throughout the South East Asia and Oceania region and currently has partnerships with Hutchison 3, Motorola, Airtel, SingTel, M1, Optus Zoo, Telstra/ BigPond Music, Microsoft (Windows Media Player 10), Creative Technology and Sony BMG. Downloads from the Soundbuzz retail store sell in Australia for $1.69 AUD ($1.47) per single.
Motorola said it would use Soundbuzz to expland its MOTOMUSIC service into India, Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
One word of warning though, if you do wish to check out Soundbuzz, don’t try it with anything other than Internet Explorer.
