The former standard bearer for file sharing has morphed into a legal subscription service, and has branched into ringtones.

Today the company announced the sale of over 100,000 “Napstertones” since partnering with Dwango Wireless since May 9th.

“Napster continues to prove the enduring strength of its brand and the appeal of its music subscription service,” said Chris Gorog, chairman and CEO of Napster.

“Napstertones is off to one of the most successful ringtone debuts ever and the recent introduction of a new competitor’s deep discount music subscription service has had no impact on Napster’s growth or retention.”

Though only available through one wireless carrier currently, Napstertones should expand to most major wireless carriers by this summer.

Napstertones range from $1.99 to $2.99 and can be directly purchased from Napster at www.napstertones.com.
