Warner signs up to Nokia 'free' music service

Comes With Music backed by three major labels

Warner Music has hooked up with Nokia to allow its tracks to be distributed through the phone manufacturer's Comes With Music service.

The service is expected in the second half of this year and will allow consumers purchasing certain models of Nokia handset to download unlimited amounts of music for free for a year after they purchase the device. Warner joins Universal and Sony BMG, meaning the service will offer tracks from three out of the four major record labels.

Nokia said customers will be able to continue playing tracks once their subscription to the service has expired and users will even be able to transfer tracks from their phone to their PC.

"Once the year is complete, customers can keep all their music without having to worry about it disappearing when their subscription is over," Nokia said when it announced the service.
