After threatening to do so for the last few months, Vodafone (NYSE: VOD) has launched its all-you-can-eat music service, a week before the UK iPhone debut from Apple. As we have reported before, it is working with music firm Omnifone that will make 1.2 million tracks available for 1.99 pounds a week flat rate rental through MusicStation. Besides the compatible phones the service is working on now, it will roll out on other handsets over the coming weeks including touch-screen devices and BlackBerry smartphones, reports Reuters.
The phones will be available from Vodafone and Phones4U shops. Users can create playlists and share songs with other MusicStation users on Vodafone network.
iPhone goes on sale in Britain on November 9 through its deal with O2 and Carphone Warehouse, while Nokia (NYSE: NOK) has also announced its online music store.
