Carphone gets Nokia music exclusive


Nokia will debut its ‘Comes With Music’ mobile track download service in the UK.

Carphone Warehouse will be the exclusive prepay retailer for Nokia’s 5310 ‘XpressMusic’ handset (pictured), which includes Comes With Music as standard.

Comes With Music gives people a year of unlimited access to the entire Nokia Music Store catalogue with the ability to keep all downloaded tracks after the year is over.

Carphone is already taking pre-orders of the Nokia 5310 XpressMusic handset.

Carphone UK chief executive Andrew Harrison (pictured) said: "We expect the Nokia 5310 Comes With Music to be the gift for Christmas and at the top of all shopping lists. We know how much our customers love music and we hope to make music millionaires of people everywhere."

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

Nokia executive vice president and head of Nokia’s Entertainment and Communities business Tero Ojanperä said: "Comes With Music will transform the way people enjoy music. With unlimited music access for a year, you can enjoy your favorite artists or delve into new genres without having to worry about individual track or album purchases."
