Placeshift your mobile music (and iTunes files) anywhere with Didiom

This note is from Tom Adler of Didiom, a very interesting new service that’s all about ‘placeshifting’ your music to any device.

Let’s get the overview from Tom.

Hi Ewan,

I am writing to invite you to test out a new mobile service that we’ve just launched called Didiom.

Didiom allows you to placeshift your music collection – streaming music files from your PC to your mobile phone wherever you are, which means now you can have your entire collection “to-go”, no matter how large it is.

Didiom also has a unique marketplace that lets you buy music wirelessly from our catalog of over 1.5 million tracks. Plus there’s a “name-your-own-price” button that lets you bid on music to get it at the price you want to pay.

All the facts have been incorporated into a factsheet that’s online, with flickr photos and embeddable video;

We’re trying to get as many people as we can to try out the free application, so anything you can do to help get the word out to your readers would be very appreciated.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for your time.

Now, the bad news for most readers: This is US-only for the time being. That is an arse.

But let’s have a peek in the door at what handsets it works on:

That’s a good range — obviously Windows Mobile is the main platform for Didiom at the moment, but I’m very encouraged to see the Blackberry Curve on the list.

I can see myself really liking Didiom. I’ve bought a lot of iTunes music and, frankly, I think that’s somebody else’s problem. I don’t see why I should be penalised for doing business with Apple when a new moblie music service or device comes along. So good news, Didiom.

If you’re in the States, give it a go?

Thanks for writing, Tom!

Didiom works in the UK and supports a bunch of devices sold by UK operators. You can stream music from your PC to your phone anywhere and preview over 1.5 million MP3s for free. The only thing is that, temporarily, music downloads are only available to customers using a credit or debit card issued by a US bank with a US billing address.

My name is Gianluca Perrelli and i'm CEo and cofounder of Kiver, italian leading indie mobile music aggregator. I'm interested into the localization of the service trough our Telcos partner.
should be possible to hold a conference and discuss on this opportuinity?
