Rhapsody spinoffRealNetworks has just announced that it will be spinning off its Rhapsody music service into a separate, independently-operated company that will be based in downtown Seattle. This move follows the departure of founder Rob Glaser as CEO of the company, and about 150 RealNetworks employees will make the transition over to the new Rhapsody. Rhapsody, a joint venture between RealNetworks and Viacom MTV Networks, will no longer see it’s majority stake held by Real, which currently has a 51 percent share.

iriver and Real Reveal clix Rhapsody

Clix Rhapsody

Earlier today, and Real unveiled their new partnership strategy, focused on the new iriver clix Rhapsody digital media player. In reality, the clix Rhapsody is just a clix2 that inetgrates seamlessly with Real’s Rhapsody music service. The end result is something that is akin to the iPod + iTunes integration that many enjoy from the Apple side of things. The player will sync up with your Rhapsody library, and will also download personalized Rhapsody Channels which, in theory, should be chock full of tracks you will enjoy. If this sounds familiar, it’s because SanDisk has done something similar with their Sansa player. All in all, the iriver clix Rhapsody runs for $189.99 USD (watch out for the $12.99 monthly all-you-can-eat Rhapsody fee), which includes 4GB of storage, and is available now. Even better still, anyone who has previously purchased a clix2 can just upgrade the firmware on their device, which pretty much turns it into a clix Rhapsody as well.
