Amazon announces Amazon MP3 store to be available on T-Mobile G1

When the T-Mobile G1 launches later today, it will include an application that will give users a phone-optimized version of the Amazon MP3 store.

T-Mobile G1 users can search, download, buy and play music from Amazon MP3, which offers over 6 million DRM-free MP3 songs from all four major music labels and thousands of independent labels that can be played on virtually any hardware device and managed with any music software.

Downloading music from the Amazon MP3 store will require a Wi-Fi connection but searching, browsing, listening to samples and buying MP3s will all be possible while connected to the T-Mobile network.

The Amazon MP3 store, currently available only in the U.S., now offers over 6 million songs in DRM-free MP3 format. Songs cost as little as USD$0.89 each while most albums are priced between USD$5.99 and USD$9.99.
