Finnish smartphone maker Nokia announced that it will bring the Nokia Music feature to its Lumia smartphones in the U.S. for the first time.
Consumers in the U.S. who own the Nokia Lumia 900 and Lumia 710 handsets will be able to download the Nokia Music app. The app will provide free access to over 150 exclusive playlists that span several genres, courtesy Nokia.
The Nokia Music app is a free-of-charge download on the Marketplace and requires no registration or subscription fee when downloaded. What's more, users get a fully advert-free music streaming service!
Nokia Music users will also be able to create their own playlists based on artiste preferences. Additionally, the app will also run in poor signal areas thanks to the Playlist download option, which means that users need not use their GPRS.
Users also have access to several Nokia music features like the Gig Finder that uses GPS technology, via the Nokia Places software, to locate upcoming performances and gigs in the area.
Since the release of the Nokia Lumia ranges of phones, users in the UK have had access to the Nokia Music feature. The app has been lauded for being one of the standout features of the Windows Phone 7.5 OS.
With the arrival of the Nokia Music app in the US, users with the Lumia 710 and Lumia 900 smartphones will also be able to download the much-touted app from the Market place.
