Vodafone relaunches its music service


Operator group Vodafone has revamped and relaunched its music service, which will now run across online, Android and BlackBerry handsets. The focus remains on MP3 track bundles – in the UK, it’s selling four tracks for £2.50, 10 for £5 and 25 songs for £10, as part of a monthly subscription. As a comparison, Spotify’s new download store is selling ten songs for £7.99. Tracks can be re-downloaded for free from the website and apps, subject to a ‘maximum re-download allowance’. As part of the relaunch, Vodafone has launched a branded version of Songbird’s desktop music player, which lets people play their music, sync with their handsets, and pulls in content from, YouTube and Flickr. For now, the new service is available in the UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Greece, Ireland and the Netherlands. The service is being headed up by Vodafone Group’s head of music Martin Kummer.

    “Some bugs” is a mild unesretatdment.  They’ve pretty much destroyed the site for the moment, though I’ll wait to see how the kink ironing goes to make a final judgement.  About the “private” tagging of bookmarks though, the links only stay that way until you try to edit them.  The second you try to edit a link, it defaults back to public unless you remember to manually reset the flag.  Given that the only way to tell where tags and page titles go (these are no longer labeled fields, nor is title added automatically) is to edit an older bookmark to check, this has caused more than a few people a bit of hassle and panic.
