Nokia launches DRM-free Comes With Music in China

April 10th, 2010

Some pretty big news out of China recently as Nokia has announced the launch of its Comes With Music service in the world’s second largest consumer market. To be known locally as Yue Sui Xiang and included for free with the purchase of select Nokia handsets (in China’s case, the X6 16GB, X6 32GB, 5230, 5330, …

Nokia launches 16GB X6

January 26th, 2010

A somewhat tame version of the X6 has been announced by Nokia today and will become available this quarter. The new 16GB X6 has half the memory capacity of the 32GB version, and it’s also missing the Comes With Music feature. If you think you can live with that, the 16GB X6 has an impressive …

Nokia announces the 5235 Comes With Music

December 11th, 2009

It might seem more like a candy dispensing cell phone toy available at dollar stores everywhere, but the newly announced Nokia 5235 Comes With Music might just be the perfect handset for a music loving touchscreen wannabe on a budget. Essentially the same handset as the 5230, the 5235 Comes With Music lets users download …

Nokia X6 Comes With Music and, more importantly, it Comes Without Music

September 7th, 2009

Nokia’s first touchscreen offering to sport a capacitive display has received a mixed welcome from tech enthusiasts. On the one hand, it has a capacitive touchscreen. Yay. On the other hand, it’s a bit thick around the mid-section and, well, some consider it to be ugly as sin. We find ourselves somewhere in the middle …

Nokia to hold music-centric event on March 11th

March 7th, 2009

Will it be the announcement of a sexy new music phone or two? Is Nokia actually going to kill DRM and make a big deal of it like Apple did? Is “Comes with Music” relaunching as “Really Cool Songs that are Free for a Year with the Purchase of Select Handsets, on Ovi”? Unfortunately it …

Nokia Comes With Music comes with DRM and gets cracked

December 10th, 2008

It’s the same old story, content providers try to prevent piracy by wrapping media in DRM. Hackers crack the DRM. We have seen it with protected WMA, iTunes AAC, DVD, HD-DVD, Blu-Ray and so on. Next to lay claim to the dubious honor of being “crackable” is the DRM that encases tracks downloaded from Nokia …

Nokia Tube info up early

October 2nd, 2008

Oh well! It looks like T3 is the first one to post a brief review of the Nokia Tube. That’s Nokia’s touch screen S60 handset which they are announcing practically now. You know, the one we’ve all known everything there is to know about for something like least a year now? If you absolutely don’t …

Sony Ericsson to launch music store in weeks

September 24th, 2008

These days, it seems having your own music store or app store is all the rage. Sony Ericsson wants in on the party and is going to release its own music store in just a few weeks. The only problem is SE’s new Play Now Plus (the music store, duh) is only going to be …

Nokia Tube press photo leaked

September 24th, 2008

Earlier today we reported that Nokia may be set to release the Tube to the world on October 2nd in London. While announcing and releasing a handset in the same breath is hardly Nokia’s style, its first S60 Touch offering has been delayed enough that our Finnish friends may have gotten fed up. A leak …
