Rdio iPhone App Teases Streaming Music Service
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.

Ehhhh... I'm not sure if this is cool. Or pointless. I guess I'd need to test it

probably had to get it out ASAP so that when apple drops their 'radio' app they won't be able to reject it for being too similar! haha.

call me old fashioned but what about pandora that is hands down THE BEST. If this makes it so you can have a play list of songs rather than a radio station with a ton of tags and HOPE your song comes up then thats it, thats all everyone wants pandora has kept my 16gig iphone virtualy music free and it looks like this will polish off the little i keep on hand, its intresting how phones have gone from OH WOW camera, to WHAT music AND camera, to what we have now your **** isnt cool if you cant play music while taking a picture while automaticaly updateing every social networking site known to man that you just played a race game ON your cell phone over wifi against a kid in london and won. All we are missing now is a kitchen sink

What will you do now Mr. Steve Jobs? With all of these streaming apps available one would think we will need faster hardware? Faster data connections... hence 7.2 HSPDA?? And what of AT&T? How will they react to all of these streaming apps??? Soooo many questions and sooo many unanswered!
