CTIA: Music turning up

Posted by Tricia Duryee at 6:46 AM

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Today, I wrote about how music in the mobile industry could be at an inflection point.

With the imminent launch of the iPhone, the rise of music phone sales, and Sprint Nextel's move to lower the price of song downloads to 99 cents each, the industry could be ripe for strong growth.

I had asked Sprint how many songs were downloaded over its network at the current price of $2.50 each.

The answer came in this morning (a little too late to make my story -- 15 million songs have been downloaded at the Sprint Music Store.

The new pricing will take effect in April.
