Sony's Music Unlimited streaming service launches in Australia

'Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity' Cloud-based streaming service comes to Australia

Sony today announced its music streaming service — dubbed "Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity" — will be available to Australians from today.

The subscription-based service includes tracks from Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group and EMI Music as well as independent labels. According to Sony, the service will initially offer 6 million tracks.

Music can be played using Internet-connected devices including PCs and current Sony network-enabled TVs, Blu-ray players, PlayStation 3 consoles.

Basic subscriptions cost $4.99 per month, while "premium" subscriptions cost $12.99. The former acts as an "infinite ad-free radio station" that lets you choose the artist or genre to listen to, while the latter offers access to "premium" channels and the ability to play individual songs on demand.

The "Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity" site displayed a message stating "Sorry, this service is not available in your country/region", as of 9.45am EDT today.

I'm using it right now - theres a free 30 day trial if you go with the 12.99 option - its not well marked but it is free.

So far my overall thoughts are its good. THough it is missing some more obscure bands.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
