Wippit launches wireless music and video services
Wippit may not be the best known or largest of the music downloads companies, but it has manage to beat the bigger boys in the race to start up a wireless music and video downloads service.
Working in partnership with British technology company, SlamTV, Wippit is starting a trial of the service, which will work with any WAP/GPRS or 3G phone. Users send “Whippit” via text to 81223 and receive a link to a 32KB download that supplies the necessary application for downloading music or video files.
Wippit hasn’t put an exact figure on the cost of downloads, but prices should start at around £1.50.
