Make mine a music phone with MusicStation

Mobile music downloads involve all the simplicity of a flat pack bedroom suite. Try as they might the networks haven't really come up with a solution that works.But we might now have the answer. London boys Omnifone are starting a campaign for worldwide domination with MusicStation.Unlike iTunes and the iPhone, the software (pictured) works on almost any phone. It's also as easy to use as any iPod and can download a limitless number of tracks over the air.The white menus do give (ahem) a slight nod to Apple's ever-popular thin white jukebox, with playlists, artists and genres all listed.For a penny shy of £2 a week it offers access to well over a million songs in unlimited Napster-style from the big four record companies, with the indies following soon. The number of downloads you can store is restricted only by the capacity of your phone.In fact the only drawbacks we can find are that you can't load in your own CDs and downloads – oh and the fact that your music will grind to a record-scratching halt when the subscription runs out (though it will reawaken when the subs meter has been fed again).Look out for it on Vodafone and Orange first, other networks are expected to follow.
