Sony's Music Unlimited comes to Android tablets
Sony throws its hat into the ring as another provider of streaming music on Android-powered tablet devices.
Originally debuting on Android phones, the Music Unlimited catalog of more than 10 million tracks joins Spotify, MOG, Rdio, and Rhapsody as one of the premiere on-demand music providers for owners of Android tablets. Music Unlimited is available in the U.S., France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain, the U.K., Australia, and New Zealand.
Version 1.2 of Music Unlimited also ushers in compatibility with the Sony Tablet S, and an enhanced user interface. The updated UI enables several improvements: faster playlist creation; easier discovery of related artists/songs; quicker navigation between album and catalog views; and enhanced search results.
Sony offers two types of monthly subscriptions for Music Unlimited, including $3.99 basic and $9.99 premium plans. "Sony Tablet users who are first-time subscribers to the Music Unlimited service can get a 180-day trial of the Basic subscription plan," according to the press release. A 30-day free trial is available to anyone.
