Nokia will make its Comes With Music Service part of Ovi, under the brand name Ovi Music Unlimited. The manufacturer sent an email to customers of the service, informing them of the move to make Comes With Music part of its Ovi store. Comes With Music, which launched 2008, gave customers access to unlimited music. It failed to really take off, despite being accompanied by a multi-million pound marketing campaign.
Meanwhile, Nokia today unveiled its slim, ‘affordable’ Nokia X3 touch and type handset, featuring a combination of a touch-screen and traditional 12 button phone keypad.
The X3, which is Nokia’s first touch and type phone, is expected to be on sale in the third quarter, for approximately €125, excluding taxes and subsidies.
Features include 3G, WLAN, a music player and FM radio, and a five-megapixel camera that can take both still and video images.
The Nokia X3 also features dedicated music and messaging keys, allowing fast access to Ovi services including social and entertainment applications.
In certain markets, the new phone will also be available with Ovi Music Unlimited, enabling the users to access a ‘virtually limitless’ range of the latest hit music.
