But before all you Nokia X6 owners get too excited, note this: the DRM-free service is only being made available in China, for now at least.

The service has been live in Europe for over a year now, but with the DRM protection meaning only one PC and mobile device can use the tracks at any one time, it’s been slow to pick up a substantial following.

Launching in China shortly, Comes With Music will ship with the Nokia X6 (32GB and 16GB models), Nokia 5230, Nokia 5330, Nokia 5800w, Nokia 6700s, Nokia E52 and Nokia E72i.

Apart from the DRM currently in place, Comes With Music is a pretty nifty music download service. Legal unlimited downloads are great for music hogs, and paired with the massive marketing push the Nokia X6 is currently receiving in the UK, removing the DRM blocks on the service could see a massive rise in its popularity.
