[Billboard Mobile makes Billboard's assortment of charts, concert dates, and music samples available to Cingular customers for a monthly fee of $3.99.]
San Francisco -- Cingular Wireless customers can now use their mobile phones to interact with music in an entirely new way, thanks to the launch of Billboard Mobile. Announced today by Cingular Wireless, Billboard and MFORMA, Billboard Mobile is an all new, first-of-its-kind mobile music application that gives Cingular customers access to music and entertainment news, Billboard charts, local concert information, as well as Billboard featured master tones, directly from their wireless phone.
Available exclusively to Cingular customers for the next month, Billboard Mobile is tightly integrated with Billboard.com, one of the leading sources of music and entertainment news. Starting with the popular Billboard charts, which rank top music singles, albums and ringtones each week, Cingular customers can read music news, view images, listen to music samples, and check out listings of upcoming events including concert dates. The all-inclusive Billboard Mobile service also delivers integrated entertainment applications such as mini-games and music trivia, all presented with an intuitive user interface that is unique among mobile applications. Additionally, customers can use Billboard Mobile to download featured ringtones.
Billboard Mobile can easily be customized to fit each user's specific interests. For example, users can opt to receive an SMS each week with a listing of the top songs and links to purchase the tones of their choice, or they can opt to receive news when their favorite artist hits the wires.
Cingular customers can subscribe to Billboard Mobile for $3.99 per month. Polyphonic ringtones and master tones can be purchased for $1.99 and $2.99, respectively. SMS and data charges may apply and vary according to user rate plans.
