Nokia Music Store goes live


…in the UK, that is. Nokia has just launched their spanking new Nokia Music store, effective immediately. The new offering should allow anyone with an N95 or N81 to wirelessly download tracks directly to their device. The service is also available from a desktop interface, which will allow you to sync the files seamlessly with your handset once connected.The tracks cost 80 pence each, or 8 pounds per record. We’re not quite up on the current rate of exchange between the Pound and the Dollar, but that pricing model does seem a bit steep. Nevertheless, wireless downloading is a pretty appealing option. While it certainly won’t give iTunes a run for its money as a desktop music source, It’s a great interface accompanied by a decent catalog. No complaints here. Unfortunately this is currently only available to Nokia users in the UK, though we expect a more comprehensive roll out to begin sometime soon.
