Killer App from...DELL??

Dell's getting back into the mp3 player business again. Yeah, yeah, big deal, right? This time, they have a different approach that's interesting. They're going to sell a reasonably priced wi-fi-enabled device that will connect to their Zing software. Ok, so what?

The difference, this time, is that they are forging relationships with other music content providers so that users aren't tied to one specific subscription service. In other words, they're trying to integrate the player with a service that will enable users to get music and other content from a variety of other services. Cool, or potentially cool, anyway. This, of course, is in stark contrast to the iPod, which is tied to iTunes, primarily.
