Rockstar and Amazon to sell in-game GTA IV music

A new partnership will make the 150 songs found in Grand Theft Auto IV available for download from Amazon.com.

The service, dubbed ZiT, allows players to save their favourite songs heard over the numerous radio stations found in-game for later purchase, reports Yahoo Games. Players can specially "mark" tracks using Niko's cell phone, and if registered with the newly announced Rockstar Social Club, can download the songs from an exclusive shopping cart at Amazon.com.

Individual tracks, which are exclusive to the game, can be purchased for US$.99 and are free of any DRM restrictions (read: play the songs on any device), as is the case with all Amazon MP3s. The partnership not only marks a special bonus for GTA IV owners, but a prospective solution for the struggling music industry.

Grand Theft Auto IV is projected to be one of the year's biggest games. It arrives on Xbox 360 and PS3 on April 29.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
