If you bought a BlackBerry for multimedia stuff like music, you made a bad choice. Yeah, BlackBerrys *can* play music, but it's not a robust experience. I still use an iPod for music.

I believe OP is asking about the app.

(I don't use it. I see it in app world. I have no reason to believe it won't work, at least for me if I tried it.)

do not worry, i have my ipod touch for that

but my generation sucks because, everything we want, and we want a lots of thing, we want it NOW lol, and with an ipod touch, you can not get songs unless you are connected to wifi hehe

yes, and you gave me a good idea, i went to the app world, and amazon MP3 is there, my device is in the list of compatible device, but when i go to dowload it, it says This item is not supported for your device.

how is that possible? i might call my carrier tomorrow

yes, my carrier said : "amazon MP3 doesnt work with your device"

i thought amazon MP3 was not available in canada, thats why i needed someone from US or elsewhere to tell me:

"frank, that is bullcrap, i have the curve 9300 and i have amazon MP3 installed on it, and its working great"

i need that to prove them wrong.

Frank,

I'm pretty sure the problem isn't technical but legal. Same as how Canada can't use Pandora, Amazon MP3 most likely doesn't follow our music licensing rules so isn't allowed to be put on our phones.

I wouldn't bet on this changing any time soon.

Yeah, that's the point. If you are in Canada, it likely doesn't work due to licensing agreements.

Has nothing to do with the device.

Interface, mostly. There's little you can do other than play the music. Perhaps this will improve with OS7.

It's the interface. Multimedia has never been a priority for RIM. More like an afterthought.

My music experience has been very different when using either an iPod or my BlackBerry.

And if you're saying "digital music is digital music" I guess you've never listened to a CD in a Krell player vs an AIWA player.

AIWA!!! i remember that was the good stuff back then, is it still good?
i have a NAD player with KEF speakers at the moment, and honestly, i cannot tell the difference between that and cheaper stuff!!

High-end gear paired with high-end speakers will make a noticeable difference with stuff like classical music. Especially if it's recorded at a high bitrate.
