Unlimited eh? We all know how that works don’t we? I don’t see an asterisk anywhere is the PR, but that doesn’t mean anything as cell providers and cable companies don’t have them next to their ‘unlimited’ plans either. Anyway, Sony has just released their Android v1.2 application for phones and tablets. The subscriptions come in basic and premium flavors for $3.99 and $9.99 per month respectively.
The release of the Music Unlimited service’s Android v1.2 application – previously only available on compatible Android-based phones – adds Sony Tablet and other Android-based tablets(ii) to SNEI’s growing ecosystem, and improves a consumer’s music experience with an upgraded user interface. Subscribers can now create playlists faster, easily discover related artists and songs, quickly navigate between the album view and catalog, and return more streamlined search results.
The Music Unlimited service, which operates in nine countries and has a global catalog of over 10 million tracks(iii), is available as a native app on Sony Tablet. For compatible Android phones and tablets, the Music Unlimited service v1.2 app is currently available for download in the Android Marketplace.
A Basic subscription to the Music Unlimited service is $3.99, 3.99 pounds Sterling, euro 3.99, AU$4.99 or NZ$5.99/month and a Premium subscription is $9.99, 9.99 pounds, euro 9.99, AU$12.99 or NZ$13.99/month. Starting today, Sony Tablet users who are first-time subscribers to the Music Unlimited service can get a 180-day trial of the Basic subscription plan.
In addition to Sony Tablet and other Android tablets, users can access the Music Unlimited service on a wide variety of network-enabled Sony devices including 2010 and 2011 models of network-enabled BRAVIA® HDTVs, Blu-ray Disc™ players and Blu-ray Disc Home Theater systems as well as PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable), personal computers including VAIO® personal computers, Xperia™ and other compatible Android-based mobile phones.
