  14. 14. <ul><li>Analyst Community Reaction: MusicStation </li></ul><ul><li>Juniper Research: Windsor Holden </li></ul><ul><li>“ We believe that services such as the Vodafone MusicStation, where consumers rent unlimited mobile music for the period of the subscription, represent a tremendous opportunity for operators.” </li></ul><ul><li>Yankee Group: Declan Lonegran </li></ul><ul><li>“ The mobile version of rented music is about to explode, and the implications for the mobile and music industries will be enormous… MusicStation will be a success story.” </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>Analyst Community Reaction: MusicStation </li></ul><ul><li>Current Analysis: Emma Mohr-McClune </li></ul><ul><li>“ MusicStation is not only the strongest competitive response to the iPhone we’ve seen to date, but it neatly offsets ‘Nokia Comes With Music’ competition some six months before its expected release.” </li></ul><ul><li>IDC: Jill Finger Gibson </li></ul><ul><li>“ Omnifone's MusicStation could become the game-changer that propels mobile music services into the mainstream and makes it harder for the iPhone to gain traction outside of the US.” </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>Analyst Community Reaction: MusicStation Max </li></ul><ul><li>Jupiter Research: Mark Mulligan </li></ul><ul><li>“ Considered together, MusicStation Max and Nokia Comes With Music have long-term potential to drive mainstream adoption beyond paid digital music’s current niche.” </li></ul><ul><li>CCS Insight: Paolo Pescatore </li></ul><ul><li>“ MusicStation Max could prove attractive to operators who should benefit from increased usage on their data networks and significant ARPU uplift compared to existing full track downloads.” </li></ul>
