NuTsie Streaming iTunes to Your Phone

nutsieblackberry.jpgRegional mobile carrier Alltel has launched NuTsie, a service that allows users of almost a dozen of the company's handsets to stream certain titles from their PC's iTunes collection to their cell phones.

This makes the operator the first U.S. carrier to offer such a service, which will cost $4.99 a month, or $19.99 a year.

To stream the protected and unprotected songs in a user's iTunes library, NuTsie does not actually place-shift songs from a user's PC. Instead, the service matches the songs in a user's library to the licensed songs stored in NuTsie servers, then streams only the songs in its server.

As a result, not every song in a user's PC library might get streamed to an Alltel phone or BlackBerry. Partly to compensate for that limitation, NuTsie gives users the option to stream songs not in their iTunes library.

New songs would be chosen by NuTsie based on the user's existing library, whose playlists must be uploaded to NuTsie and will appear inside the phone's NuTsie application. New music is also available for playback from friends' playlists and from NuTsie programmers.

Even more at TWICE.
