Nokia picks UK to debut Comes with Music service

Carphone Warehouse will stock compatible handset

Nokia will debut its Comes with Music service in the UK before implementing a global rollout.

The service, which was first announced at the end of last year, allows users to download as many songs as they want from the Nokia Music Store for 12 months after they have purchased a compatible Nokia handset. Nokia says that users can then keep the music after the year is up.

The Nokia Music Store features tracks from Universal, Sony BMG and Warner Music Group artists, after the three record labels signed deals with the phone manufacturer earlier this year.

The first handset that will be compatible with the service is the Nokia XpressMusic 5310, which will be available exclusively through the Carphone Warehouse.

"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 catalogue of music. We're thrilled to be working with Carphone Warehouse to bring Comes With Music to the UK," said Simon Ainslie, managing director of Nokia UK.

According to Nokia, the Carphone Warehouse will start taking orders for the Nokia XpressMusic 5310 today, although it did not release details about pricing or availability of the handset. The phone manufacturer also said it will release further details about the service on October 2nd.
