Vodafone today announces the launch of a catalogue of 500,000 full music tracks on Vodafone live! with 3G. The enhanced service will be rolled out to Vodafone live! with 3G customers in eight countries, beginning in Germany, with Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the UK following in the next few months.
Vodafone also announces that, since it first launched full track music downloads across an extensive range of new 3G handsets in November
2004, over one million tracks have been downloaded.
With the significant increase in catalogue size, the company is also extending its search engine capabilities on the service to help customers find the tracks they want, in the way they want.
Thousands of full track music downloads from global artists have been secured through Vodafone's existing deals with Sony BMG Music
Entertainment and Warner Music as well as new agreements for music from the catalogues of EMI and various local artists. Of the one million
full music tracks downloaded, three of the most popular artists were: Maroon 5, "She Will Be Loved", Jennifer Lopez "Get Right" and Laura
Pausini, "Resta in Ascolto".
