Although it really hasn't been much of a secret, earlier today at the 7digital Annual Event, Ben Drury, CEO of 7digital did confirm his company will be working with Research In Motion as the official music download provider for the BlackBerry 10 smartphones releasing in Q1 2013.
As we know it right now, 7digital offers solutions to current BlackBerry smartphones along with powering the BlackBerry PlayBook Music Store but their BlackBerry 10 offerings will become more integrated within the operating system itself to make the best use of both 7digital and the BlackBerry 10 platform capabilities.
Customers will be able to browse, preview and purchase high quality digital music all from within BlackBerry App World, with over 22 million tracks available to them from the 7digital catalogue. The music section of BlackBerry App World, powered by 7digital, will feature new releases, best sellers, regional selections, a full back catalog, independent artists and more.
