Nokia adds Sony BMG to 'Comes With Music' mobile line-up

Sony BMG announced Tuesday it will offer content, when Nokia launches its Comes With Music sometime during the second half of 2008.

Sony BMG said Tuesday it will offer content when Nokia launches its Comes With Music program in the second half of 2008.

Nokia Comes With Music was announced in last December, and packages a mobile phone with a year of unlimited access to music.

Sony BMG is the second record label to jump on board after Universal Music Group. Its roster includes artists such as Alicia Keys, Britney Spears and Bruce Springsteen. Nokia has said it expects all major labels to join.

The Finnish phone giant has said it hopes the service will add new revenue for the benefit of artists, labels and other rights holders.

Several questions remain, however. Nokia still hasn't announced where the service will launch, and on which phones.

Nokia recently denied reports that it will pay Universal Music Group US$35 for every phone that offers the service. The actual sum is still being negotiated, according to a spokeswoman.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
