Verizon’s VCAST Song ID

May 28, 2007 in Wireless Industry News

Verizon’s latest get-rich-quick scheme involves the exploding downloadable music market and is called: SongID.

Verizon's SongID

Verizon’s SongID service.

SongID is an application that’s preinstalled on certain VZ handsets – currently the LG Chocolate, enV, VX9400, VX8700, and Samsung SCH-u620 – that lets you find out, among other things, just what singer whined so much about having a bad day that he went and wrote a song about it.

All you do is load up SongID, hold the phone up to the music source, and with the wonders of VCAST technology the phone will spit out the title, artist, and album. And as an added convenience it’ll also let you buy the entire track or just a small ringtone snippet.

To be honest, I think the idea is just brilliant, and a great move on Verizon’s part. Now if only AT&T would come up with something half as innovative…
