Following through on a promise to launch ahead of the iPhone juggernaut, Britain's Omnifone has officially gone live with its MusicStation all-you-can-eat mobile music service. The first rollout is on Sweden's Telenor, offering up unlimited downloads for a "small weekly fee" -- and what's more, data fees are built into the fee which should help alleviate the paranoia of bankruptcy-causing overages from creeping onto subscribers' bills. The service smacks of existing subscription music services; subscribers can download and listen to tracks 'til they're blue in the face, and they simply stop working if service is canceled. The key difference, of course, is that this is the first such service to squarely target phones. Following the Telenor launch, Omnifone looks to go live with a number of other European and Asian operators, though they've got no plans to crack the tough US nut for the time being.
