Nokia’s ‘Comes With Music’ Comes With Independant Music Label Liberation

liberation.jpgWe already knew that Nokia was launching its “Comes With Music” service in Australia this quarter, but now we have a tiny bit more information: local independant music label Liberation, who looks after artists like Jimmy Barnes, Bliss ‘n Eso, Josh Pyke, diesel, Kasey Chambers & Shane Nicholson, The Temper Trap and Troy Cassar-Daley, will be a part of the service at launch. I wonder if that includes the Barnesy back-catalog?While that information doesn’t really offer too much in the way of exciting information (unless you’re a big diesel fan who’s looking to buy a new Nokia mobile in a couple of months, I guess), a single throw-away line at the end of the press release does raise an eyebrow:

Nokia Australia will announce its Comes with Music enabled devices in Australia by end of March 2009.

Hopefully we’ll see the service on a range of handsets, and not just the 5310 that the service launched on in the UK. At least we won’t have to wait long to find out…
