Default VZW Song ID

Please Login to Remove!

Folks, my BB trumps my wife's Verizon LG Chocolate 8550 in every aspect except one. She has an app called "VZW Song ID". Basically, you can hold up the phone to a speaker that is playing any song and it "listens" to the song, starting at any point in the song, and a few seconds later, it will tell you what the song is. That's totally cool! It gives, title, artist and album. Enough to go look up the song or more on the artist.
Anyone know if a 8310 has a similar ability? Apparently, this app is tied into some Verizon DB that has +4M titles.
That's totally cool!!! I want that ability for the BB. Anyone can point me in the correct direction? If it doesn't exist, maybe an app someone could work on? Thanks all!

Yes, you should have this on AT&T on your homescreen look for the icon "musicID". It looks like a little radio, it costs about $4/month I believe.
