It looks like everyone wants in on the cloud music service these days. Apple has its iTunes and now their iCloud, Google has Google Music and Amazon has their Amazon MP3 site. I guess the hype must be really strong because it looks like HP wants in on the music scene as well as reports have it that they are taking the idea into consideration and are currently testing the waters for a service that would be reminiscent of Sony’s Qriocity (pronounced as curiosity) that would allow for streaming of music, games, e-books and videos.
As it stands HP has their very own mobile platform that is based on Palm, the webOS, and it looks like they’re hoping that this music service will be able to bring to the table what iCloud and Google Music is already doing for their respective platforms, iOS and Android.
No word on whether this will actually happen as it seems at the moment HP is only testing the waters but who knows what the future will hold? For now Pre, TouchPad and webOS can only remain patient and see what the future will bring to them in terms of music services.
