Napster and Lenovo team up
Desktop and notebook PC maker Lenovo and Napster announced an agreement on Friday that will have Napster provide buyers of Lenovo PCs with a free 14-day trial to Napster's Napster To Go digital music service. The offer is valid for most of the models Lenovo sells in North America, and will give the customers access to more than 6 million songs and audio tracks in the Napster MP3 store introduced earlier this year.
As subscribers, the buyers will also be able to access Napster To Go's ad-free radio stations and playlists put together by music industry professionals. They can also transfer the songs they select onto compatible MP3 players and music phones without paying an extra download charge.
Outside of this deal, Napster charges about $10 per month for its subscription service, and is offering a free 7-day trial.
