Nokia music in Australia

Nokia on Wednesday announced it will launch its Comes With Music service, along with the compatible Nokia 5800 XpressMusic handset, in Australia on March 20th. The handset, Nokia's first touchscreen device, will have access to a library that has more than 4 million tracks. As in other countries, the service will give users the option to download an unlimited amount music to their PC or the 5800 handset for one year and keep what they download, unlike other time-limited or pay-per track services.

The music service is thus far available mainly in the UK and was just expanded to Singapore earlier this month.

The Nokia 5800 phone is similar to the reference version and will ship with an 8GB microSDHC card. It has a built-in graphic equalizer and a 3.5mm jack for attaching third party headphones. Nokia will charge the equivalent of $636 in Australia for the 5800 XpressMusic handset along with a 12-month subscription to Comes With Music. Some retailers will also offer it with an 18-month subscription for about $725.
