Sony has launched its Music Unlimited service in its homeland, Japan, armed with a catalogue of 10m songs and deals with the local divisions of all four major labels. Users will pay 1,480 yen a month (around $18.55) for similar features to the service in the West: scan-and-match cloud storage, on-demand streaming and personal radio. It’s launching on a range of Android and Sony-made devices – not iOS initially, though. Sony’s partner Omnifone is flagging up the importance of the streaming aspect too: in an email to journalists, it notes that existing Japanese streaming service LISMO only has 1m tracks available.
