Nokia and music label EMI are in talks about adding EMI’s catalog to Nokia’s unlimited music download service, “Comes with Music.”
EMI has reportedly said that the company wants to be a part of Nokia’s offering. Reuters reported Wemppa Koivumaki, head of EMI Finland, saying, “I believe strongly that when it launches we will be there, with a full offering.”
Nokia is expected to begin selling handsets designed for the unlimited listening service in the second half of this year. Unlike other subscription music models, Nokia’s will be free for the first 12 months, and users will be able to keep the downloaded tracks, though files will be DRM protected.
Nokia announced the program last December with music label Universal.
