Nokia 'Comes With Music' Service in India Soon

  • Nokia 'Comes With Music' Service in India Soon

Nokia has announced plans to bring its "Comes with Music" service to India before the end of 2010. The service, which is currently only available in the UK and Singapore (for reasons best known to Nokia), will enable users to enjoy unlimited music access.

The move, according to Nokia, will help curb the music piracy problem in the country by providing consumers unrestricted access to music. According to Nokia India's marketing director Vineet Taneja, services like these which remain *almost* free will attract people and buy music legally rather than take the piracy route.

With Nokia Comes with Music, users get access to unlimited music downloads from Nokia's existing "Nokia Music" service for free. This means, the users will have access to over 3.5-million tracks of all genres, Indian and international labels that the Nokia Music Store currently stocks. Many phones priced in the Rs. 6,000-7,000 bracket will come embedded with this service. The user can then download and play the music on his phone. He can also sync it with his PC and play it on multiple platforms without any DRM restriction. Existing phones can be made 'Comes with Music' compatible as well.
