doubleTwist makes a partnership with T-Mobile as an iTunes alternative
T-Mobile has been known to openly embrace Android – making them the carrier of choice if you’re looking to check out a healthy lineup of handsets. Now it looks like they’re forming a new partnership with doubleTwist; an iTunes alternative that allows you to manage media for hundreds of devices that include Android, WebOS, and Blackberry devices. The deal includes doubleTwist banners being displayed in T-Mobile retail locations and on their web site.  Now the icing on cake has to be in inclusion of having doubleTwist pre-installed on some Android phones; which includes the recently launched T-Mobile myTouch 3G Fender Limited Edition. On top of emulating the visual and functionality experience found with iTunes, doubleTwist allows you to share your media with friends using integrated Facebook and Flickr support – it all boils down to an “iTunes for Android”. Unfortunately the one downside to the T-Mobile version is the lack of integration with Amazon’s MP3 Store – it was actually launched in October, but was removed by T-Mobile. Don’t let that stop you from checking it out because future efforts to expand the software could see this feature happening down the road.
