The gloves are off in the mobile phone music market. Just as T-Mobile announces its somewhat strange two-minute music download service, O2 responds with details of its long awaited integrated 02 music player. The limited edition Siemens SX1 mobile will feature a built in 02 Digital Music player so you don’t need to use a separate device to download tracks.
Built into the SX1 is 128Mb of memory, allowing storage of up to 128 full length tracks. It also comes with an integrated VGA camera, video and audio player, FM radio, MultiMedia card slot and tri-band functionality. It is available for £79.99 or will be free on selected pay monthly tariffs.
Launched in November 2003, 02’s music download service offers 100,000 tracks from Sony Music, Warner, Universal, BMG and several independents.
