Music downloads for your mobile

British telecom Omnifone has launched MusicStation, a new music download service for mobile phone users in Sweden. All subscribers of the Norwegian group Telenor can enjoy unlimited downloads for a weekly fee of 25 Swedish kronor (2.99 euros, 3.98 dollars). About 80% of all mobile phones will be compatible with MusicStation. In the coming weeks, the new mobile service will be introduced on markets across Europe, Asia and Africa.

With this launch, Omnifone has beaten Apple to the global market. Apple’s iPhone, offering music storage and Internet access, will be introduced in the US within two weeks (June 29) and in Europe by the end of this year.

“MusicStation’s launch heralds the beginning of the next generation of mobile music,” states Omnifone chief executive Rob Lewis. “Hundreds of millions of mobile phone subscribers worldwide will soon gain the ability to download and play unlimited amounts of music, wherever they are.”

    As seen on a Proximus Moblog there are some billboards in Germany allowing people to download ringtones with bluetooth. Nice idea (if it worked)
