Nokia CWM Phone Launch

As a companion to news of the 5800 XpressMusic touchscreen phone, Nokia today also kicked off the formal launch details of its Comes With Music service. The company now plans to ship the inaugural, modified 5310 XpressMusic on October 16th and will sell it exclusively through Carphone Warehouse for 130 pounds ($230). As promised, the handset will come with one year of unlimited access to music and will let owners keep any downloaded tracks if they choose not to renew the subscription. Pricing for a renewal still isn't available.

Comes With Music will also be available on other devices with an emphasis on music phones. Both the 5800 XpressMusic and the older N95 8GB will also come in specialized versions at a later date, though neither has a public release date or price.

The phone maker adds that it has now landed all four major music labels with the addition of EMI and will also carry music from a number of independents, such as Beggars Group and The Orchard. Other countries beyond the UK are planned as part of the strategy and will include the US sometime in 2009.

Comes With Music has been primarily backed by Universal Music Group and is considered an attempt by the recording firm to establish a more reliable music business model as well as an alternative to dependency on conventional pay-per-song online music stores such as iTunes, which company chief Doug Morris likens to "golden handcuffs" that promise success but trap the company into a particular pricing scheme.

    check ur awareness level



    Congratulations, you are about to learn some of the biggest secrets of about your country & the proposed future world. We the people, need to act fast because they [private organizations] are acting faster than you think!


    America WAKE UP!!

    Born into the slavery of the PRIVATIZED monetary system (NOT UNDER TRUE GOVERNMENT CONTROL/ASSETS), without your awareness, it is now up to you to spread the knowledge and commit to re-evaluating our existence & purpose.

    Vote for H.R 2755 Federal Reserve Abolition act - As President John F. Kennedy intended when he signed EXECUTIVE ORDER 1110 six months prior to his assignation which would eliminate the CFR, IRS, and Federal Reserve from Global tyranny if enforced today!

    Also Presidential Canididates are appointed "compliant" by the CFR & Federal Reserve, as you will soon learn below... Do a "write in" vote for Ron Paul.


    Intro to the situation right now

    The Most important thing you need to know - The Purpose of NWO

    New World Order includes
    ...and who knows who else?

    Alex Jones asks a question that gets him arrested!

    Now, do you have ANY idea YOUR country's Think Tank has been up to?

    Wikipedia Operation Northwoods

    Bush talks about EXPLOSIVES in building (on 9/11?)

    9/11 Truth EXPLOSIVES going off in WTC (CLEAR AUDIO!!!)

    Sounds Familiar? Makes sense now? (9/11- inside job!)

    Federal Reserve Purpose

    Truth exposed by Ron Paul

    The Illuminati Circle EXPOSED

    Everything listed here is a private organization somehow related to the founders or co-founders, including David Rockerfeller's circle. Yet they are convinced they have a plan for the whole world!

    They are as federal as Federal Express, which means we can revoke their right to power since they are nothing but a private organization, no government agencies.

    By creating our own money system & banks, we can kick the federal reserve's asses out of existence and restore true Democracy once again in the USA!

    Then we won't need a civil war, but if the people need to fight for their lives, you bet we will organize and reach for the inner light & guidance to preserve the power to the good majority of people!
