Music and mobile devices are synonymous.  With this move, Nokia?s attempt at a resurgence in the mobile space is extremely clear, and has received the nod from labels such as Warner Music Group and Universal Music.  In an optional update for Nokia Music customers who upgrade to Nokia Music+ is $3.99/?3.99 per month, undercutting other music streaming services (Spotify Unlimited 4.99 and Premium 9.99).  This is highlighted by Jyrki Rosenberg, VP for Entertainment at Nokia, "By removing barriers like adverts and sign-ins, Nokia Music makes it easy for users to discover and enjoy music on the go. Nokia Music+ now provides increased control over the listening experience at half the cost of many third party services."
