Virgin Media and Nokia launch special V Festival edition handsets
Virgin Media, the headline sponsor for the V music festival, today announced the launch of two special ‘V’ edition mobile phones from Virgin Media’s official partner, Nokia.
The Nokia 5230V and Nokia X6V will be available in July and will feature a pre-loaded V Festival app and a host of extras covering the two day event, which takes place on 21-22 August at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire.
The ‘V’ edition Nokia handsets are available only from Virgin Media stores on the high street, as well as online. The Nokia X6V is available free on a £20 per month tariff (£15 for Virgin Media customers), and the Nokia 5230V is available free on a £15 per month tariff (£10 for Virgin Media customers).
The Nokia 5230V is a touch-screen handset with a custom V Festival red back cover and 10 free music tracks available through the Nokia Music Store. The Nokia X6V comes complete with a 5 megapixel camera, a music player including mixing software, plus built-in speakers.
Both handsets come with free sat nav with Ovi Maps, V Festival wallpaper, the new V Festival app and the Shazam music identifier pre-loaded to the handsets. The V Festival app comes embedded into the phones and will provide up to date news from the festival. Social networking sites will be fed directly into the app as well as news, artist line-up information and live updates.
