The forthcoming release of streaming music service Rdio has stolen much of the thunder reserved for next year's launch of Spotify. As a report on 9to5Mac indicated this morning, the makers of Rdio (who, by the way, similarly pioneered a few other cool services you may have heard of - like Skype and Kazaa) are teasing the service with a new application revealing that the excitement surrounding Rdio may not be exaggerated.
Rdio is like carrying a giant MP3 player in your pocket. You have unlimited and unrestricted access to all the music, and you get to select exactly the song, album or artist you want to hear.
Since it requires a login, only private beta testers are able to give the app a whirl for the time being
So when will Rdio formally launch in order for the world to discover if the service can actually live up to the hype?
For now, we're simply being told "soon." The stealthy start-up and, some say, Spotify killer, could very well dominate the streaming music market by the end of 2010.
