Swedish telecommunications giant Ericsson and online music-swapping pioneer Napster announced on Wednesday a partnership to offer a new digital music service for mobile operators.

Together, the two companies will "offer the first complete, fully integrated digital music service available for mobile operators", Ericsson said in a statement.

The service will allow users to download and access music files via wireless technology such as mobile phones and via personal computers. It will also offer ring tones, master tones, images, wallpaper and video content.

The service will be introduced in Europe over the next 12 months and will be offered to operators in select markets in Europe, Asia, Latin America and North America, Ericsson said.
