Opening today: the Nokia Music Store in France

(PresseBox) (Bochum, ) The Nokia Music Store in France combines quality music and exceptional mobile devices, all without sacrificing ease-of-use. It also offers over 2.5 million titles from the best French and international artists, of which some are available exclusively. Local music is very important in France, where more than 60% of songs on the "Hit Parade" hits list are by local artists. Nokia is working with major record companies as well as independent labels and the top local artists.

"The music industry isn't just about selling songs; it is also—and especially—a way to share new musical experiences. Nokia aims to provide the best music experience by building services into its mobile devices to satisfy users who want to be able to access their music collections anytime, anywhere, and for a reasonable price," explains Eric Munier, music activities manager, Nokia France.

"The opening of the Nokia Music Store will also be an opportunity to introduce Nokia to the music industry in France. We look forward to cooperating with French labels and artists. In this context, the Nokia Music Store will allow artists to talk about their musical world and what they're working on. Free songs will also be available each week in order to discover new talents," continued Munier.

Downloads will cost €1.00 per song and albums will start at €10.00. With a €10.00 monthly subscription, users will have unlimited access to listen to the entire catalogue on their PCs.

With a single account, music lovers can access the Nokia Music Store from their desktop computers or directly from compatible Nokia mobile devices such as the Nokia N81 8GB, Nokia N82, and the Nokia N95 8GB. You can search for new music, get advice, or search for your favourite artists, songs, or albums, all from the palm of your hand. When an item grabs your attention, you can add it to your selection to purchase later, or download it instantly to your mobile device.
