Cingular Bowing Mobile MySpace18 Dec, 2006 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Cingular Wireless Dec. 18 announced a deal that would grant select subscribers access to the popular community site MySpace.com on their mobile phone.
The cost is $2.99 per month plus standard data usage charges.
Cingular customers with compatible handsets would be able to upload photos, respond to email, search for MySpace friends, post comments or blog entries, and view friends and groups.
The deal expands upon a previously pact between the companies that allowed MySpace's unsigned bands and artists to cut ringtones of their original music and distribute the tones to fans for purchase and download.
