The Nokia N96 will become available to buy on PAYG, bundled with Nokia’s Comes With Music service next year, allowing users unlimited music downloads from Nokia’s music store for 12 months.
The Comes With Music service became available in October 2008 on the Nokia 5310 and the Nokia N95. The N96 is the latest model in the popular N series of mobile phones from Nokia, although it narrowly missed out an being a Which? Best Buy – unlike its N95 predecessor. The N96 Comes With Music bundle is expected to be available in January and will cost £540.
The Comes With Music Service from Nokia allows PAYG customers to download as much music as they like from Nokia’s catalogue of more than two million tracks. The tracks can then be kept for as long as the user likes – although there are restrictions with the format compatibility. If you want to burn the tracks to a CD, or play them on other devices such as an MP3 player, then you’ll have to purchase the tracks.
More information about the service can be found in the Which? Nokia Comes With Music review. Additionally, further information is available on the Nokia website.
