T-Mobile brings own Google Music event plans
T-Mobile supported talk that Google's November 16 event was for its Android Market music store by sending out invites of its own for a follow-up joint event later that day. Using the same picture that Google used of the Los Angeles location with a T-Mobile logo, it promised a concert at 9PM Pacific that night. Busta Rhymes, Dirty South, Drake, Maroon 5, and R3hab would all perform live.
Few in-writing clues are available other than the artists and an invitation to "experience the world of T-Mobile & Google."
What the carrier's connections might be aren't known. It may have special access to the store, such as more free songs or special prices. A chance exists that T-Mobile could have early or a short-term exclusive on the store, although it's doubtful Google would intentionally reduce access to its store through an exclusive.
