Get ready for yet another mobile music store, this time from Sony Ericsson. Yup, that company’s still around.
SE will launch Play Now Plus in “a few weeks” in Sweden. The music service will initially be available to Telenor subscribers, a wireless carrier there. The service will cost 99 Swedish crowns (about $15) a month for unlimited downloads.
If all of this sounds awfully familiar, give yourself a gold star. Nokia launches Comes With Music next month in the UK, a similar mobile music service. And don’t forget that Amazon MP3 comes pre-installed on the T-Mobile G1. Granted, the phone doesn’t have a headphone jack, but these phones aren’t designed with living, breathing human beings in mind, people with common and easy-to-predict needs and expectations.
