palmOne Puts Rhapsody On LifeDrive

Real Networks has announced that it’s Rhapsody service has been bundled into the new LifeDrive from palmOne. The LifeDrive is like an iPod for business people — it has “a 4-gigabyte hard-drive based device (3.85GB user available) that fuses business productivity tools and entertainment applications, allowing users access to their essential documents; personalized content, such as photos, home movies or their MP3 collection; email; and wireless web access”. It has Bluetooth and WiFi but no mobile network access…People who buy the LifeDrive get a 30-day free trial of Rhapsody Unlimited, which will allow them to stream or download an unlimited amount of music to their PC (and hence, if they wish, to their LifeDrive) from a library of 1 million songs and 1500 music videos. After that the service costs $9.99 per month.
