Ever since Google snapped up digital music sharing specialists Simplify Media last year, rumours of a music service to rival Apple iTunes haven’t stopped. We all thought, Life of Android included, that Google Music would be unveiled at the official launch of the tablet optimised Android Honeycomb 3.0 earlier this month. It didn’t happen but it now appears Big G’s music service could be just around the corner.

At a recent press conference at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the seemingly loose tongued Chief Executive of Motorola Mobility, Sanjay Jha, let slip “If you look at Google Mobile services today, there’s a video service, there’s a music service – that is, there will be a music service.” Oops.

Mr Jha then added that Honeycomb 3.0 would be the recipient of these new video and music features. With Honeycomb only designed for tablets, it appears owners of Android-powered slates may be the first to get their grubby fingers on the service. Previous rumours have suggested that Google Music will be a cloud-based service, letting you synch your library to your Android device over-the-air.
