The company will debut this new service by running live unlimited music demonstrations on Google Nexus One and HTC handsets at Mobile World Congress 2010 in Barcelona: Hall 7 Stand C69.

MusicStation for Android offers Android consumers immediate over the air unlimited access to a catalogue of over 6.5 million tracks, with features including intelligent progressive download support, music search & discovery features, social network community features, advanced music recommendations, artist biographies, real time music news and charts, and full integration with the native media player and third party applications.

By utilising Omnifone's MusicStation Android API suite, Android device vendors, independent application developers and mobile network operators can rapidly develop their own unlimited and a-la-carte music services on Android. The open MusicStation Android API suite provides Omnifone's partners with complete flexibility to utilise the full range of features offered by MusicStation within their own content or entertainment service. A MusicStation Android application can be co-branded or fully partner branded.
"With fully localised catalogues in more than 20 countries, and the widest and most sophisticated device type support, Omnifone can provide fully licensed* digital music services in more countries and on more device platforms, including Android, than any other digital music service provider," said Rob Lewis, CEO of Omnifone, "The popularity and growth of the Android platform will be substantial. Omnifone is delighted to be able to deliver the richest and most sophisticated music capability on mobile, and one that will work effortlessly on any manufacturer's Android device".

With the ability to easily integrate unlimited music playback into 3rd party Android applications, the MusicStation Android API unlocks the potential for novel features as yet unseen in legitimate portable music services.
