HP Tablet May Download Music It Thinks You’ll Like Automatically

Well this would be interesting. PreCentral.net is reporting that HP’s upcoming TouchPad tablet may not only have built in movie and music stores, but that the music store may let you synchronize your own music library to HP’s servers. That’s not all, though.

The music store may also “leverage a ‘smart algorithm’ to ensure that the music the user is most likely to listen to is cached locally on the device. This service will also allow TouchPad owners to stream music that they don’t yet own,” says PreCentral.

So imagine either a monthly, all-you-can-eat music subscription service like Zune Pass, Napster or Rhapsody that transfers tracks it thinks you’ll like so you don’t have to download them yourself, or maybe an a la carte music store like iTunes that preemptively transfers snippets of song previews that, when purchased, unlock the full versions of each song.

This same feature would apparently be available to newer HP smartphones down the line, too.
