Amazon (AMZN) pulled the cover off  its long-awaited  music store , Amazon MP3 . Amazon is targeting the long tail that Apple (AAPL) hasn’t captured. Their selection is DRM-free MP3s with over 2 million songs from more than 180,000 artists represented by over 20,000 major and independent labels. Most songs are priced between 89 cents and 99 cents.
Will they outsell Apple’s iTunes ?
Check it out and compare it to iTunes. Do you think one is better than the other? Will you shop at both or keep your loyalty to one?
(UPDATE: It seems that Virgin Digital, the online Virgin Megastore has closed .)
