7digital launches BlackBerry app, US store The UK online music store 7digital has opened their US store today, as well as a BlackBerry app, hoping to expand on the popular service internationally.
The site has become popular due to its cheaper prices, with many albums selling for $7.77 USD compared to $9.99 on iTunes or Amazon.

Individual tracks are available for as low as 77 cents and are 320kbps bitrate DRM-free MP3s. The catalog of tracks is from the Big 4 as well as thousands of independents.

The BlackBerry app will give smartphone owners the ability to browse and download music from the store, through 3G or Wi-Fi. If 3G or Wi-Fi is not available, the store will download lower-bitrate tracks instead, to save time.

If you have to download the lower-bitrate version first, the purchase is saved to your 7digital "locker" so you can download the higher quality tracks later if necessary.
