Soundbuzz and Creative launch Asian online music service Soundbuzz.com and Creative have launched their first online music store in Singapore. Further services are planned for Hong Kong and India regions. The top market for pirated CDs is in Asia, so online music stores will have a tough time competing there.
Much like Sony Connect and Apple iTunes, the Soundbuzz -service offers music in a format that is compatible with a portable player -- in this case the Creative's upcoming Zen Touch player. Soundbuzz offers music for S$1.99 (US$1.16), and has a catalog of about 250,000 songs.

Sony has already said it has no plans to launch a service in Asia. Apple hasn't so far announced its plans regarding Asia.
