Nokia expands XpressMusic range to other devices

13 Feb 2009

Mobile giant Nokia has revealed that as well as the 5800 XpressMusic phone, the XpressMusic service will also be available on the new 5320 and 5220 devices, as well as the N96, N85 and N79 smart phones.

Nokia’s pioneering Comes With Music service offers consumers a new and revolutionary way to discover and download music, revamping their entire digital music experience.

Consumers can buy a Nokia Comes With Music-enabled device and be able to download millions of free tracks from the Nokia Music Store catalogue over the course of a year. What’s more, they get to keep all their downloaded music from the diverse catalog of music from international and local artists – even when the service period is over.

The service will be delivered on its newest and highly anticipated Nokia 5800 XpressMusic device, as well as on Comes With Music editions of the Nokia N96, Nokia N85 and Nokia N79, and the Nokia 5320 XpressMusic and 5220 XpressMusic devices.

“Comes With Music sets a truly industry-leading precedent in consumer value and convenience that others are already following,” said Vlasta Berka, general manager, Nokia Singapore, Malaysia & Brunei.

“Especially in these trying economic times, music lovers can stay connected to the music they like, yet no longer worry about the cost of purchasing music by single tracks or album. The freedom and simplicity of the service is unparalleled. Comes With Music is revolutionary simply because all your downloaded music is yours to keep,” Berka added.

Nokia Comes With Music is already live in Ireland and the UK on the Nokia N96, Nokia N95 8GB, Nokia 5310 XpressMusic, and will be available on the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic later this year.
