Nokia event on Wednesday

Nokia is teasing the public with an advertisement for an event this Wednesday, March 11th, that would possibly see the release of a music phone, with many thinking it could be yet another handset compatible with the company's Comes With Music service. If so, this would be the third such phone, adding to the current 5800 XpressMusic and 5630 XpressMusic, the latter launched less than a month ago. The event will likely consist of a product announcement, followed by two question and answer sessions, happening in the morning and evening online at Nokia Events. No other details are known, including whether this is indeed a new product announcement or a change to the service itself. Many are hoping it will be a long-awaited announcement that the service is finally coming to North America.

Both of the current Comes With Music compatible handsets run on Symbian's S60 operating system. The one-year subscription service is unique in that it lets users keep all the songs they download even after their subscription expires. Nokia is also working on making its library completely DRM-free. [via UnwiredView]
