Motorola acquires largest Asian music download provider Motorola has announced that it will be completing its previously announced acquisition of Soundbuzz, the Singapore-based provider of digital music downloads. In fact, Soundbuzz is the leading provider for the entire Asian continent.
The companies did not disclose any of the financial terms of the deal but did say it had been in the works for a few months.

"Clearly, this marks a major milestone, as it positions Soundbuzz and Motorola to better participate in the ongoing growth in Asia's booming mobile music download market,"
Soundbuzz CEO Sudhanshu Sarronwala said.

The company's MotoMusic platform will now have 750,000 songs available for download in India, Southeast Asia, and Greater China.
