MySpace may have plans to introduce its very own ‘iPod-killer’ to supplement its newly-introduced music download service, company CEO Chris DeWolf explained at the Web 2.0 summit in San Francisco yesterday.
There’s no big rush to do so, however, with DeWolf simply conceding “it’s possible” before stressing his company remains focused on the music service right now.
The service is a joint venture between MySpace and Sony BMG Music, Universal Music Group and Warner Music Group. However, at launch it immediately fell foul of indie labels who complained at lack of parity through the service.
People streamed music more than 1 billion times in the first few days and have created 80 million playlists since the launch, DeWolfe said, adding, “If anything, we’ll be accretive to iPod sales” he said, “Unless we develop a device,” he added.
