Vodafone K.K. announced that on 1 September 2005 it launched a new Music Search service on its mobile internet service Vodafone live!, so customers can find Chaku-Uta, Chaku-Uta Long Version, and Chaku-Uta Full music tracks faster and with greater ease. For the price of communication charges alone, the Music Search service lets customers search Chaku-Uta and Chaku-Uta Full music track content by artist name. After inputting the artist’s name (even partially) in either kanji, hiragana, alphabet letters or numbers, Vodafone live! official artist song content is searched according to a given keyword and links to artist information pages are displayed.
Some screen shots of the service are included with the company’s .PDF here.
