Last week I announced that Nokia’s Comes With Music service will be available in May. Now, I do have a certain date. The music-flatrate which allows you to download more than 5 million songs for a whole year will be available on May the 4th. First partner is mobilcom-debitel, further operators to follow soon. The first devices which will come with Comes With Music are the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic (510 Euro), Nokia 5630 XpressMusic (379 Euro) Nokia N79 (479 Euro) and the Nokia N95 8GB (589 Euro). So, the CWM service costs about 15 Euro per month which is indeed a good price for as much music as you like. Nokia Germany will push the service and try to bring Comes With Music in everybody’s mouth using TV-Spots, promotions and more.
“We set out to create the music experience that people are telling us they are looking for – all the music they want in the form of unlimited downloads to their mobile device and PC,” said Anssi Vanjoki, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Multimedia, Nokia. “Even if you listened to music 24 hours a day, seven days a week, you would still only scratch the surface of the music that we’re making available. Comes with Music fulfils our dream to give consumers all the music they want, wherever they want it, while rewarding the artists who create it.”
