HP launched an early strike at iCloud this weekend with the quiet rollout of a beta for HP Play. The music syncing service lets users stream their music collections both from webOS devices such as the TouchPad as well as Macs and Windows PCs. The desktop app is based on the open Songbird app and will even serve as an iTunes equivalent, importing music from Apple's app and syncing webOS hardware over USB.
Philips today unveiled what should be the first full-fledged, globally available media player to use Android. The GoGear Connect provides full Android, including access to Android Market and even Google Maps, but has a focus on media apps. The device also builds in some phone-like features with a camera, and the option of wireless media syncing over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.

Apple Music in Taiwan, now up to 113 countries
Apple Music has now added its 113th country, Taiwan, to its expanding list of areas where it offers its paid subscription service. The price in the country will start at NT$150 (about $4.50 US) for an individual subscription, and that now includes (as it does in the rest of the world) the formerly free-but-ad-supported iTunes Radio feature, which as in other countries will be customized somewhat to offer channels of locally-popular music styles. Following on the heels of the addition of the service to Turkey, Apple Music is now available in 16 countries and regions -- including China, India, Russia, and Japan -- where Spotify has not yet arrived. http://apple.co/1Q3yI2e
