Mobile phone operator Vodafone U.K. has unveiled its "Vodafone Music" interface, which includes a song preview facility and a visual library to help users search for tracks.

The service is available to download through the multi-media portal Vodafone Live! by users of 11 new handsets from Sony Ericsson and Nokia handsets. It has been developed by Vodafone U.K. and RealNetworks.

Vodafone Music features an enhanced visual library which helps users browse for tracks using the "Smart" search option without inserting the full name of the track or artist. Customers will also be able to listen to 30-second previews and purchase album art and browse charts. The interface allows them to access all the music they have previously purchased from Vodafone Live!
