Music Ally: Nokia Comes With Music ‘Impressive’ So Far

Music Ally took an early look at Nokia’s much-hyped Comes With Music service over in the UK, and early impressions are that it’s pretty good, actually.

“So far, we’re mightily impressed with the intuitive and user-friendly nature of the Nokia Music (and by extension Comes With Music) interface. Apple has been rightly lauded for making the music purchase and playback process simple and easy for non-techies, but Nokia has clearly paid attention to iTune’s [sic] better points too.”

The music files turn out to be 192 Kbps WMA tracks, which sound pretty good but obviously have DRM; the DRM is good for unlimited plays but no burn or transfer rights.
