Mobile phone network Vodafone has today announced that UK customers will have unlimited access to over a million tracks from all the major record labels, as well as leading independents, on a range of new handsets available for Christmas.
Through an exclusive agreement with UK based mobile music company Omnifone Vodafone will roll out their award-winning MusicStation, giving customers the ability to download tracks from Universal Music Group, Sony BMG Music Entertainment, EMI Music and Warner Music Group direct to their handsets.
Customers will be able to sign up for “unlimited downloads” from MusicStation for just �1.99 per week.
The company says most customers will not need to upgrade their phones to access tracks as the service is designed to work on existing 2.5G and 3G mobiles as well as new phones including the new Nokia N95 which is exclusive to the network.
Other new handsets include the touch-screen activated Samsung F700, and the Sony Ericsson W910i (Havana Gold Design) with its 40Mb memory and innovative shake control, making it perfect for music lovers.
Tim Yates, CMO, Vodafone UK said the announcement “is a first for music on the mobile in the UK and means a fundamental change to the way people experience music on their phones.”
“Our new handsets will enable customers to make the most of both music and Vodafone Mobile Internet services. We have a range of mobiles from value for money pay as you talk handsets to more sophisticated models offering a huge range of features. There will be something for everyone from Vodafone this Christmas.”
