MySpace Open to the Idea of a MySpace MP3 Player

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff

Maybe it's device-envy. MySpace co-founder Chris DeWolfe was speaking at the Web 2.0 conference in San Francisco last week when he said that he was open to the idea of a MySpace MP3 player or some kind of music-playing device.

 

Conference host John Battelle posed a question to DeWolfe about whether MySpace would be open building a device for listening to music.

 

"It's possible. Right now, we're just focusing on the service," DeWolfe said.

 

MySpace has no plans to start making any kind of device, but the thought leads to a few questions. Would consumers be open to a media player that is branded MySpace? As popular as the site is, it's hard to imagine it having kind of brand loyalty that would drive people to buy a MySpace-specific device. Even more so if the device only worked with MySpace.

 

What about allowing MySpace to work with other devices? Creating a sort of open standard that would allow their service to be used on all kinds of media players and phones would probably give them a wider audience, and more advertising revenue.
