We brought you the news about Omniphone's revolutionary MusicStation service back in February, but now we're happy to be able to announce that it goes live today.

As we previously revealed, MusicStation is a Napster-style service for your mobile phone that will deliver unlimited music downloads to (almost) all music enabled 2.5 and 3G phones for a weekly fee of £1.99 (or 2.99 if you're in euros).

This new service will let mobile phone users legally access, download and listen to an unlimited amount of music, any time, anywhere with no extra charge for data.

Music will come from Universal Music Group, Sony BMG, EMI Music and Warner Music International, as well as independents, so this is no tin-pot service.

Although not a direct competitor to Apple's iPhone, this certainly muscles in one of the iPhone's supposedly special features – a decent music offering for your mobile phone.

Omnifone has announced a target of 100 million MusicStation handsets within the next 12 months.

The service rolls out across Europe today, with handsets with the MusicStation software preloaded hitting stores but further details regarding operators, etc, to be confirmed – we'll update you as soon as we know more.
