    I said it before and I’ll say it again. The Zune = BBM Music

    BBM is a the #1 most recognized social app on the market which is why RIM introduced BBM Music. The whole point of this app is to make the whole BBM experience even better than it is now and add Music which is what everyone loves. I’ve tried it and like it but until my friends know about this app and adapt to it, it won’t be any more than a music player with a limit. But I don’t see this not becoming popular at all since BBM already is despite the subscription fee RIM is charging, may force some people to think twice about subscribing. I myself would love it if there was no limit to the amount of songs on the playlist for the $5/month subsciption and also allow us to listen to the full song before adding to playlist instead of the 30sec demo. Wouldve even convince me to ditch slacker radio if that was the case.

    Love BBM music…works great and easy to use on my 9900…Blackberry needs to really push this with some decent advertising!

    I hope it comes out cheaper than the proposed $5/mth. That’s a lot for 50 songs and the need to make countless friends you don’t even know…
