Yes, this “groundbreaking music service” is still keeping the nitty-gritty details about itself hidden. What we do know is that The Carphone Warehouse will be the exclusive pre-pay retailer for the Nokia 5310 XpressMusic “Comes With Music” edition, and begins taking pre-orders for it today. Presumably, though not confirmed, consumers will be able to use other Nokia multimedia handsets as well — you know, ones that are less than a year old.
Simon Ainslie, Nokia UK Managing Director said, “Comes With Music is the most compelling digital music offer ever introduced to the UK. You get a fantastic Nokia device with unlimited access for a year to a huge catalog of music. We’re thrilled to be working with Carphone Warehouse to bring Comes With Music to the UK.”
Users will have unlimited access to the Nokia Music Store, and be able to keep all downloaded tracks even after the year’s subscription is over.
More information will be revealed at a Nokia event on 2nd October, which may or may not be the actual launch date. C’mon Nokia, do you want us to use your new music service or not?
