Sony and Omnifone music

Recording industry insiders are reporting that Sony Ericsson is due to launch a music service soon similar to Nokia's Comes With Music. According to CNET, the service is a partnership with Omnifone, which will allegedly provide a limitless supply of music downloads from the industry's four big labels. Sony Ericsson and Omnifone both could not be reached for comment on the matter.

The latest news about Comes with Music reveals that Nokia is charging upwards of $150 premium for the phones that use the service. Comes with Music offers users an entire year subscription in which they can download whatever they please, but can only keep tracks past the year, and can not renew the service. Users who wish to renew must purchase a new Comes with Music phone.
