Mobile Today are on a roll today when it comes to Nokia News, and this news will have music lovers jumping for joy.
The news is that Nokia have agreed to remove the DRM locking from their music store in the next few months. The existing setup means once you have purchased a track you can listen to is on a Nokia phone, but just 1 phone so if you upgrade or change you are stuck!.
By removing DRM you can now share your music over many Nokia devices which is a much better idea and is needed as Vodafone recently announced they were removing DRM from their music store,
Mobile Today have posted
The manufacturer does not currently allow tracks bought from its music store to be transferred between handsets, frustrating users who upgrade their phones.
The removal of Digital Rights Management (DRM) has been secured after negotiations with record labels.
Adam Mirabella, director of global digital music retail for Nokia, said to Channel News Asia: ‘We have dialogues going with all of our partners and DRM-free is also on the roadmap for the future integration of Comes With Music.’
The news follows Vodafone’s recent announcement that its users can now download DRM-free tracks from its music service.
