Sony Qriocity hits Android phones

Sony gave its fledgling Qriocity music service a big though partial boost Wednesday by launching an Android app (free, Android Market). Its service gives both Internet radio and on-demand song or album streaming much as on the electronics giant's Blu-ray players, TVs, and the PS3. Listeners get all the sub-features, such as artist bios, PC sync, and personalized channels.

The app has a familiar interface for those who've already used the service elsewhere but adds a home screen remote widget.

Although planning to widen the experience, Sony is mostly promising support for Sony Ericsson phones from the past two years, including the Xperia Play, Xperia Arc, X10, X8, and others. A handful of other devices are known to work that include the HTC Desire and Samsung Galaxy S line; the Motorola Droid X is known to have a media playback problem.

Any device running the app needs to have at least Android 2.1 and a 320x480 screen.
