Despite strong criticism coming its way from all corners of the internet, including ours, Nokia is standing shoulder to shoulder with Comes With Music. The company claims that it’s happy with the way the public has responded to the service, and cautions commenters to look at the global picture.
As Dan pointed out the other day, the service is doing very well in Singapore and other parts of the far East. It’s apaprently never been Nokia’s strategy to push it very strongly in the UK. That hasn’t stopped the media jumping on it with blood in their eyes, though.
In a wonderful display of bad timing, too, Nokia is launching Comes with Music in Mexico today. I imagine most news coverage is focusing on other matters. Mexicans will be able to pick up the Nokia 5800, though maybe not the Star Trek edition, from Nokia’s online store.
