Nokia's all-you-can-eat, unlimited music downloads service has landed in China, offering subscribers access to an extensive catalogue of Windows Digital Rights Management (DRM)-free tracks.
The service will operate in a very similar way to that which is available to UK customers, with all Comes With Music-branded Nokia phones bundled with 12 months access at the point of purchase.
During this time they are entitled to download as many songs as they wish to. Accounts are transferable to new phones, but only if they are part of the Comes with Music range.
The exclusion of DRM, which is employed by certain services in order to prevent songs being copied onto multiple devices, suggests that Nokia and major music labels are less concerned with restricting the use of their products and more interested in getting people signed up to Comes with Music.
The launch of Comes with Music in China is significant for UK consumers because it also marks the first time that Nokia has brought the service to some of its alternative mobiles which are not focused solely on multimedia playback.
This includes the 6700 range and the E72i, which is aimed at enterprise users.
