Universal & Nokia Announce Comes With Music Deal
Hoping to stimulate music sales, Universal Music Group will offer free music for 12 months on new Nokia phones. The world’s largest major Universal and the world’s top cell phone vendor Nokia announced they would offer a free 12-month access to Universal’s music for buyers of Nokia music phones starting from the second half of 2008.
The “Comes With Music” offering would differ from any other package on the market as users can keep all the music they have downloaded for free during the 12 months, and there’s no limit to how much they can download. Financial details were not disclosed, but Universal obviously received a tidy sum for the deal.
