AT&T Wireless Rolling Out Music, IM Services

AT&T Wireless is trying to play catchup to the various wireless data services now being aggressively marketed by the other wireless carriers. Today they announced a new wireless music service to go along with access to Yahoo instant messenger, which they announced yesterday. The new music service lets users preview new music, download pictures of musicians, or buy a CD or ringtone. Does it seem to anyone else that the various carriers have absolutely no idea what people want and are randomly throwing up various data services and hoping something will stick? Update: Busy day for AT&T Wireless. Now they’re also announcing that they’ve teamed with Activision to bring video games to their phones.
