Sprint Music Plus gives hybrid player and store

Sprint on Tuesday decided to provide its own more complete portal for music on smartphones by launching Sprint Music Plus [mobile link]. The app gives Android, BlackBerry, and Java phone users a way to play the phone's local music collection as well as a built-in store run by RealNetworks. The store offers unprotected MP3 tracks and puts any downloads on the carrier bill to keep it simple.

The app should work over 3G, 4G, and Wi-Fi. Any Android user on Sprint can find it today in the Sprint Zone app along with the link. Those wanting to use it on a BlackBerry or a Java-based feature phone have to have a device newer than May 2010 to use the full MP3 store.

Tracks on the store carry the usual variable pricing and float between 69 cents for older or less popular songs through to $1.29 for some new singles and popular downloads.
