Sony’s recent Android-based activity with its Sony Mobile handset business doesn’t mean the company is ignoring other manufacturers or mobile platforms. It’s recently announced plans to make its Music Unlimited cloud-based entertainment service available as an app for iPhone and iPod touch users. Users will be able to listen to their music library without needing to download or synchronise it before leaving home.
The service is already available on a variety of devices including the Sony PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, BRAVIA TVs, Sony Xperia smartphones and other Android devices.
Tim Schaaff, President of Sony Network Entertainment International, said “With the proliferation of connected devices, consumers expect complete access to their digital entertainment and demand a consistent experience regardless of the device. Bringing the Music Unlimited service to iPhone and iPod touch is one of the many ways we are able to reach more music lovers around the world while ensuring the same level of high-quality entertainment that is associated with the overall Sony Entertainment Network experience.”
Music Unlimited is a cloud-based digital music service that was originally launched in December 2010. A basic subscription costs £3.99 per month.
