Να βελτιώσει τα έσοδα της αναζητά – όπως όλες οι εταιρίες, η Amazon και γνωρίζουμε ήδη εδώ και καιρό για την υπηρεσία Cloud Player που λανσαρίστηκε νωρίτερα φέτος.

Τώρα λοιπόν οι κύριοι στην Amazon αποφάσισαν να ανεβάσουν το τέμπο στην ανταγωνισμό και ειδικά το iTunes, με το Cloud Player να αναβαθμίζεται upgrade.

Τι κάνει; μπορεί λοιπόν σήμερα κανείς να πληρώσει για τη συνδρομή Cloud Drive και να έχει απεριόριστο χώρο για κάθε AAC- ή MP3-encoded μουσική στο Cloud Player.

Η προσφορά δεν είναι για πάντα αλλά για “limited time” ενώ επιπλέον οι χρήστες μπορούν να αποθηκεύσουν αγορά από Amazon MP3 και πριν από το λανσάρισμα του Μαρτίου χωρίς να δώσουν χρήματα σε σύγκριση με αυτό που ίσχυε – μόνο για όσα αγοράστηκαν μετά.

Η Amazon δε εκτός του ‘σύμπαντος’Αndroid, έχει ετοιμάσει και έκδοση Web για χρήστες iPad και έχει κάνει optimized τη σελίδα για επιφάνειες αφής μεγέθους.

Μια μάχη στο cloud είναι από τις βασικές φέτος που έχουν πολύ ενδιαφέρον
