Sony still not getting it?

Sony, hoping to step past Apple's dominance of the internet-based music download market, will be offering a new streaming music service with access to over 6 million songs. In the UK, where "Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity" just rolled out this week, the premium version of the service costs L9.99 GBP. For that kind of money, you'd expect that you'd be able to receive the music on more than your Sony TV, PS3 or computer, but that's all you get for the time being.

Sony better get a move on and offer this streaming via 3G to portable devices, because people are all about getting their music on the go. If Sony doesn't get this, then they are truly out of touch with the customer base and continue to lose relevance in the modern entertainment market.
