Remember the launch of ‘Nokia Comes With Music’ in the UK last year?
The Nokia 5310 XpressMusic handset was available from The Carphone Warehouse on a prepay deal for under £130; impressive value for money when you consider it offered unlimited access to millions of tracks that could be kept forever. It was later joined by the N95 8GB on Orange (again via The Carphone Warehouse) and on 3. Yet the service didn’t ever grab headlines in the same way that new handsets did.
Fast-forward a few months and Orange is launching 'Comes With Music' on the Nokia 5800 to its UK customers. Now with over 6 million tracks, the Comes With Music package will will be available on Orange ‘pay monthly’ tariffs for under £25 per month from the end of May.
