Here's the press release.

Any thoughts? Such as "Gee, the songs are 30 to 40 cents cheaper than iTMS's DRM-free content." Or "How'd all those major labels jump on board with Amazon so quickly?" Or "256 kb/s... not bad!"

Do you think this latest salvo in the DRM-free movement will threaten iTunes lead in the industry? Or at least push them to lower their prices?

Well I like this, and I may actually start paying for music. I just got the Melbourne SD27 from Balupunkt (the one that uses SD cards w/ no CD player), and it obviously can't play DRM music, and it also can't play AAC files. So this is a good alternative. I liked their unbox to.
