Nokia N76 – now with added Travis

Mobile phones

When Nokia says it has teamed up with “one of the UK’s most influential bands”, I’m guessing not many of you out there would think of Travis. Well amazingly, that’s who they mean.

Nokia has done a deal with Sony BMG to throw in five Travis tracks for anyone buying the N76. But it’s typically not that simple – it’s in the form of a voucher, you don’t get to choose the tracks and you have to download from the MSN music shop. Surely pre-installing isn’t that hard? At least you will get the band’s new single, plus four other tracks from the band’s back catalogue.

According to Tapio Hedman, senior vice-president Multimedia, Nokia and probably without his tongue in his cheek: “We’re very excited about being able to offer music from Travis, a genuinely thought provoking and inspirational band, for mobile enjoyment with the Nokia N76. This compelling offer confirms the commitment Nokia Nseries has to music and developing devices that match the lifestyles of consumers”

The N76 can hold up to 1500 tracks and supports Windows DRM tunes.
