The Media Guru

Yesterday Nokia announced Nokia Comes with Music…a revolutionary program that enables people to buy a Nokia device with a year of unlimited access to millions of tracks from a range of great artists - past, present and future. Once the year is complete, customers can keep all their music without having to worry about it disappearing when their subscription is over.

So basically if you are buying a new Nokia device (i.e. an Nseries “supercomputer”), you’ll get over 2 million tracks to download for “free” from Universal Music for a whole year. During those 12 months, your subscription can be transferred to up to 3 different devices.
But as usual always there’s a catch – all those music files are DRM-protected by PlaysForSure(which unfortunately doesn’t PlayAtAll on iPods & Zunes but only on Zens & Yepps…) So if you want to burn those tracks on cd you need to purchase an upgrade for each track!
& Nokia is offering all those tracks by paying Universal a monthly fee of around $5 for each device sold – which is then added on the price of the device.

Nokia have just announced the new 3110 Evolve which has average specs (S40, 1.3 MP Camera, FM, Triband GSM), but is otherwise highly eco-friendly! Bio-covers made with over 50 percent renewable materials and comes in a box made of 60 percent recycled stuff. On the technical side, the Evolve's charger is Nokia's most efficient ever, delivering juice at a full 94 percent below Energy Star specifications.
So Nokia has taken the first step towards making “green” phones… now, how about the bio-electronics?

Nokia Internet Radio app has been brought from alpha development & released as a beta to N95, N91 & N82 testers. Nice app to try if you are bored of the local FM stations & you have some bandwidth to spare.

& finally a recently submitted Nokia patent reveals what may be the next Nseries “cameraphone!”
This dual-slider is packed with a massive rotating 8MP camera (with optical zoom) & a sliding flash mechanism. I hope that in addition to the sliding keypad, they’ll also add a touchscreen! It would be the perfect successor to the N93i.
