AMAZON GOES MOBILE is expanding its digital music presence to the mobile realm by developing a version of its MP3 music store for Google's Android mobile phone platform. The first phone compatible with the Android operating system is T-Mobile's G1. The Amazon MP3 store is one of many applications designed for the new software, and T-Mobile is supporting the service. The mobile version of the Amazon MP3 store allows G1 users to browse and search the Amazon digital music store and listen to song samples via the T-Mobile network. All the music purchased will be DRM-free.
