RIM is continuing with their odd rollout of their new BlackBerry Music Store. They put out a beta in the Beta Zone for BlackBerry Music store in Canada and now they have released it in Canada and Australia (kudos to BBEmpire for noticing). This music store is powered by 7Digital and seems to simply be a rebranded version of the 7Digital app.
On the other hand RIM still has their Amazon MP3 for BlackBerry music app for users in the US, UK, Germany, and France. I am not sure what the deal is between the two but at least users of BlackBerry Music on the PlayBook (which is powered by 7Digital) can use the same account and access their 7Digital music locker between devices.
