Muve Music Service Won't Debut At CES
January 7, 2011 at 4:29 AM (PT)
CES was supposed to be the perfect site to launch their new service, but CRICKET WIRELESS announced at THE CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW they will delay the launch of the MUVE MUSIC service and the SAMSUNG SUEDE. The service was to offer unlimited music playback, downloads, ringtones and more as part of a $55 plan.
CNET reports, "CRICKET WIRELESS told CNET the new service and the availability of its debut phone is delayed until later in JANUARY. While phones and plans are temporarily on hold, CRICKET's street campaign in LAS VEGAS is still in effect. We glimpsed a bus stop advertisement touting the rocking new phone plan. When asked what caused the delay, a CRICKET spokesperson told CNET that software bugs are behind the hold."
UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP, SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT, WARNER MUSIC GROUP and SAMSUNG are partners in the MUVE venture.
