Amazon And Other Online Music Stores Raise Prices...Or Have They?

"You kind of knew it wasn't going to last and that this would happen. The day after iTunes put its price increase into effect (some songs for as high as $1.29, some as low as $.69), the other big online music retailers followed suit. Amazon, Wal-Mart, Lala, and Rhapsody, have now raised their prices as well. All but Walmart now list prices for hot selling and new stuff at $1.29 per song. Walmart is at $1.24...Somewhere some music industry execs are smiling and smoking cigars over this."

I don't mean to contradict my friends over at GottaBeMobile.com, but I figured I'd check out Amazon before I posted this story - and in the listing of top-selling MP3s, you have to go down to #24 before you see a track for $1.29. In the top 100 songs, only nine of them are more expensive than 99 cents. I also checked the Zune store, and most songs are still 79 points with a handful being 99 points. So hopefully this isn't as wide-spread as the post over at GottaBeMobile would suggest...I gues over the next few weeks we'll see.
