Would you buy an MP3 player created MySpace?
I recently wrote about a possible MySpace music device, but am curious what the CDFreaks’ community thinks about it.
MySpace CEO and co-founder Chris DeWolfe recently dropped hints that the popular social networking web site may be interested in developing an Apple iPod competitor in the future.
Even though the company is focused on its recently launched MySpace Music service, “it’s possible” MySpace could create a music player, DeWolve said during the Web 2.0 conference in San Francisco last week.
“Right now, we’re just focusing on the service,” DeWolfe was quoted as saying during the event. The new music service launched two months ago and has quickly gainined new users, and launching a new MP3 player to compete against more established competitors may not be the best move.
It seems like trying to create a new device is futile, as the Apple iPod still dominates – but even if you can’t topple Apple, there is still plenty of money that can be made.
