Research In Motion (RIM) has named 7digital as the official music download provider for the BlackBerry 10 smartphones being released in Q1 2013.
BlackBerry 10 users will be able to browse, preview and purchase digital music from BlackBerry App World, with over 22 million tracks from the 7digital catalogue.
The music section of the BlackBerry App World, powered by 7digital, will feature new releases, regional selections, a full back catalogue and independent artists.
7digital and RIM work closely together to integrate both 7digital’s open music platform technology and BlackBerry platform abilities, such as the social integration and recommendation engines.
7digital’s platform allows BlackBerry App World to build digital music services into the core of the product.
The 7digital powered music service on Blackberry 10 will be available for users in the UK, Europe, US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, South Africa, Malaysia and Singapore.
7digital currently powers the music stores on BlackBerry smartphones and the BlackBerry PlayBook.
