Motorola has acquired a stake in cloud-media service Catch Media in its latest move to reposition itself as a cloud-stored music and video provider.

The deal will give Motorola access to Catch Media’s Plan Anywhere cloud storage capabilities, which work across connected devices including smartphones and tablet devices.

Play Anywhere was rolled out with Best Buy Europe in Q4 2010 through its Music Anywhere service, and was distributed by The Carphone Warehouse in the UK. It’s expected to launch in the US early 2011.

It hasn’t been confirmed whether Motorola plans to incorporate Catch Media’s platform into its latest products, which include its Pro smartphone and its first tablet, the Xoom, which launched through US mobile operator and Vodaphone subsidiary Verizon yesterday.

Last December, the consumer electronics and handset manufacturer acquired cloud start-up Zecter (nma.co.uk 22 February 2011).

Speculation that Google and Apple are set to launch cloud-based services is mounting, with FT.com reporting that Apple is looking to use cloud storage to allow iTunes users to back up their collections and access them from any Apple device.
