The big news in the mobile industry last night was the launch of Samsung’s Galaxy S III Android smartphone in London. The device has a big 4.8-inch touchscreen, eight-megapixel camera and all manner of connectivity, while a partnership with Dropbox will provide owners with 50GB of online storage for their files. But the big news for Music Ally was Samsung’s almost-throwaway reference to new features for its Music Hub music service. The subscription-based streaming service promises a catalogue of 17m songs, and includes a scan-and-match feature to put people’s own collections in the cloud. The Music Hub will cost $9.99 a month for access via one smartphone or tablet, and $12.99 a month for up to four devices, including computers. What hasn’t been announced at the time of writing is who Samsung’s partner is on the service. The company has worked with 7digital on previous Galaxy devices, though.
