Nokia Snags EMI for Comes With Music, and More

EMI joins Nokia's Comes With Music

The Big Four record companies. That’s Universal, Sony BMG, Warner Music Group, and EMI. And a couple of days ago, EMI became the last of the Big Four to join Nokia’s unlimited music downloading service, Comes With Music.

Interesting statistic: last year the company made a grand total of -260 million pounds (-$452 million USD), and that was WITH names such as Coldplay, Kylie Minogue, The Beatles, Iron Maiden, and – dare I say it – Katy Perry, whose hit single sounds something like this:

I kissed a girl
and I liked it.

Speaking of Comes With Music, the service is expected to launch on October 16, with the Nokia 5310 XpressMusic getting the first treatment. Nokia has said that the phone will retail for around $229 – a current premium of only around $27 bucks compared to Nokia’s current retail price. That’s not so bad, considering earlier estimates of $150.
