Sony Music Unlimited Android Streaming Service Arriving Very Soon

As I mentioned earlier this week, Sony is bringing its Music Unlimited cloud service to a bunch of pocketable devices and it will be happening soon.

The snappily titled ‘Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity‘ will hand you the power to squirt music to your Sony Ericsson Xperia Play and Xperia Arc phones, and those natty PSP and NGP handheld gaming consoles.

You’ll naturally be able to choose from your own music or the Music Unlimited catalogue. The new Sony service currently streams music to the PlayStation 3.

You can listen to the music from your hard drive streamed to your phone when you’re out and about, or listen to music in the Qriocity catalogue.

It costs £4 per month for the basic service or a tenner if you want more channels, playlists and on-demand listening.

The Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity service will arrive on the current PSP to start off with and then should start to appear on Android-based Sony Ericsson phones.

There’s no confirmed date for its arrival at the moment but Sony says it’ll be out in a matter of weeks – no wonder Sony was a tad miffed at Amazon’s Cloud storage service opening early this week. Apparently Amazon are rushing around to try and make things ok with the major labels after Sony stamped its feet.

I’ve only just got news of this as Sony actually held the launch party for Qriocity, or whatever it’s called, at the same time as the Xperia Play launch – and you all know which one I was at 😉
