Nokia has suggested that its Comes With Music system is particularly good value at the moment due to the difficult economic climate.
Vlasta Berka, a spokesman for the Finnish mobile phone manufacturer, stated that the product is excellent value for money “particularly in these trying economic times”.
He claimed that it allows fans of music to “stay connected to the music they like, yet no longer worry about the cost of purchasing music by single tracks or album”.
His comments were made as Comes With Music launched in Singapore, the first Asian market to receive the service.
Among the phones that will feature the product are the Nokia N96 in black, the Nokia N76 in petrol black, the Nokia N85 in cherry black, the Nokia 5220 XpressMusic in titanium and the Nokia 5320 XpressMusic in grey.
The UK was the first place to receive Comes With Music in October 2008. In a review of the product, PC Advisor claimed it was “an attractive proposition”.
