Blackberry World Music

How does Blackberry Music work? I assume it still uses 7 Digital as it's library; however, prices and releases do not match with the 7 Digital website or Blackberry Playbook music app. For example, many new releases that are on the 7 Digital website and on my Playbook do not show up on Blackberry World until 2-3 days after they are released. Pricing is also different on Blackberry World than with the music app on my Playbook and 7 Digital. I recently looked up a new release, that wasn't on my Blackberry World, but I found it on my Playbook. There was a promotional offering for the album at a price of $6.99. I also confirmed this price on the 7 Digital website. So, I bought it. Curiously, I continued to check on the Blackberry World website for this album, just to see how long of a delay I can expect with new releases. Three days later the album was available for $9.99 in Blackberry World. This is almost a 45% increase in pricing! Finally, how come you can't pre order on Blackberry World? 7 Digital offers a pre-order option and you get the first single for free. I'm tired of buying a single, then having to buy the album which includes the single.

 

Thanks,


Adam
