(NASDAQ: AMZN) – Amazon.com, Inc. today announced the launch of the Amazon MP3
store optimized specifically for iPhone and iPod touch. For the first time

now they can access Amazon’s huge catalog of music, features like personalized
recommendations, deals like albums for $5, songs for $0.69, and they can buy
their music once and use it everywhere,” said Steve Boom, Vice President of
Amazon Music.
