We’ve known about BBM Music for a while now, and today’s the day it goes live in Australia. The Blackberry Music model has an unusual mix of social sharing and subscription pricing. The first month is free, after which it’s $5.99 a month. That’s cheaper than, say, Sony’s Qriocity or Microsoft’s Zune Pass. The mechanic for BBM means that you only have access to fifty songs at a time, but you can share them with other BBM Music users. I get that it’s social, but only fifty tracks — who’s going to sign up for that? [Blackberry]
