T-Mobile launches Nokia Ovi Music Unlimited phone for Christmas
T-Mobile and Nokia have paired up to sell the Ovi Music Unlimited version of the Nokia 5230.
T-Mobile will exclusively sell the product, which comes with 12 months free access to the Ovi Music Store for £99.99.
Ovi Music Unlimited allows customers to download an unlimited amount of music, which can be transferred to PCs and kept forever.
The Nokia 5230 is a touch-screen handset with a two-megapixel camera and will be bundled with six months free internet access and unlimited text messages.
T-Mobile head of handset and device marketing Nicola Shenton said: ‘The incredibly popular Nokia 5230 is the perfect all-rounder, offering customers a huge range of exclusive benefits, all for under £100. With internet access and music downloads free from the moment you register the phone, the Nokia 5230 Ovi Music Unlimited on T-Mobile makes the perfect fuss-free Christmas gift.’
Last year, Nokia launched the Nokia 5800 with the Comes with Music service with Orange and Phones 4u.
Initially, the service was widely criticised, with some industry analysts saying that the marketing was unclear.
