Warner Music Group – The first of multiple alliances expected to provide content for the MOTOMUSIC Experience, Motorola and Warner Music Group will collaborate on the development of digital products, marketing campaigns and strategic planning across multiple devices. The alliance will feature a variety of artists and can offer fans exclusive, premium content such as full-length songs, ringtones, ringback tones, mobile music videos, wallpapers and more.
Microsoft Corp. – The Motorola and Microsoft music collaboration is making it easy for consumers to take music from their Windows-based PC and load it on their phone.
