With all eyes firmly focused on Apple – and, to a lesser extent, Amazon and Google – Sony has only gone and launched its own music streaming service for Android users, complete with cloud-flavoured goodness.
The service is called Music Unlimited, and Sony boasts a library of over 7 million tracks. In addition, you can upload your own catalogue and stream it to your Android device(s) over Wi-Fi or 3G.
There are two subscription options, namely Basic at £3.99 and Premium for £10 per month. Basic is essentially ad-free radio, while Premium gives you the freedom to create playlists and choose which tracks you listen to. Both options offer the cloud storage functionality.
Android 2.1 (Eclair) is a minimum requirement. You can read a list of supported devices (which is unsurprisingly heavy on the Sony Ericsson side) right… here.
And the best part? You can currently sign up for a free 30-day trial. Sah-weet.
I wonder if Apple will have anything to say about the logo. See the little iTunes-style icon in the bottom left? Cheeky.
