Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 1:49 pm

Mobile phone maker Sony Ericsson said on Tuesday that it would launch a new service on its phones that would allow full music downloading, initially focusing on new and up-and-coming artists.

Mobile phone makers have been integrating music players into their handsets, part of a threat to Apple’s iPod. Sony Ericsson has christened its new service M-BUZZ. It will use an enhanced version of its PlayNow service and the Internet.

“The first phones offering M-BUZZ will be the W850 and W950 Walkman phones announced earlier this year and scheduled to ship in European, Asian and Latin American markets during the second half of 2006,” Sony Ericsson said in a statement.
