Palm, Nettwerk strike mobile music deal
Leading Vancouver indie music label and artist management firm Nettwerk Records has teamed up with handheld device maker Palm Canada Inc. to offer a new music service offering exclusive content. The Nettwerk-to-Palm channel, as it’s been dubbed, will feature digital music and screen image files available to download for users of Palm’s Treo 650 smartphone, and music, screen images and video files for LifeDrive mobile manager hardware users. Among the more than 10 Nettwerk-represented artists to be profiled under the program are Sarah McLachlan, Barenaked Ladies, Swollen Members and the Be Good Tanyas. The Treo 650 runs on the Bell Mobility network, while the LifeDrive features built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. Palm says both devices share a common user profile: over 25 years old, frequently online while on the road, and enthusiastic about embracing new technology and content channels.
