Google music on its way, says Motorola exec

Motorola CEO breaks news of Android-based iTunes competitor.

Android users looking for their own official iTunes substitute may not have long to wait, according to Motorola chief executive Sanjay Jha.

While talking at MWC on the subject of the Motorola Xoom tablet, 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." Short of Google themselves coming out and saying it, it doesn't come more official than that.

There's been speculation on a Google-based competitor to iTunes for years, with more recent speculation pointing toward a cloud-based service that would let users stream content to their mobile devices on the go, doing away with the need for physical storage altogether.

There's no word on when the Google music store will materialise, but we'd expect it to be imminent, with less than a week to go before the Xoom's US release date.
