Nokia's 5800 XpressMusic
Nokia's all-you-can-eat music download serviceis interesting on many fronts. It gives users unlimited access to the online Nokia Music Store and they can keep the music, or even re-download the tracks after the 12-month service period.
Here's the kicker: the tunes come with Digital Rights Management (DRM) and are playable only on the designated handset and PC.
Well, scrap that last point for now.
According to a report from news site Channel NewsAsia, the director for Global Digital Music Retail at Nokia, Adam Mirabella, said: "We have dialogues going with all of our partners and Digital Rights Management-free (DRM-free) is also on the roadmap for the future integration of Comes With Music." The company says it is committed to a DRM-free music catalogue on the Nokia Music Store before the end of 2009.
