Does anyone launch a new music service in the days leading up to Christmas? Well, MP3tunes boss Michael Robertson does. He’s announced a new mobile music search engine called TuneRoom, which could be just as disruptive to the labels as his previous ventures. As he explains:

“Tuneroom is a music search engine with a twist – it is designed to send songs wirelessly to your mobile phone. You can either browse Tuneroom from your PC and locate files to send to your mobile phone or visit the Tuneroom directly on your mobile phone’s browser and select songs to load to your phone. In both cases songs you select are optimized for phone playback so they will load fast, yet sound good. Then they are sent to your mobile phone wirelessly so you can receive them as you travel around with no need to dock or cable your device.”

TuneRoom is a partner service (kinda) to MP3tunes’ recently-launched Load2Mobile feature, which makes it easier for users to transfer songs from their personal libraries to their mobile handsets. Robertson says more than 150,000 songs can currently be found via TuneRoom. Yes, there are plenty of tracks from major label artists on there…
