LOS ANGELES T Mobile is working with European record label EMI Group and Rhythm NewMedia on an advertising supported mobile music video service being tested in the United Kingdom. The companies announced the partnership Monday, a day before the mobile industry gathers here for the Cellular Telecommunications Internet Association’s semiannual trade show.
