Show 'em Nokia: this is how you make a ringtone

Show 'em Nokia: this is how you make a ringtone
If you go to the Settings menu on your Nokia Lumia 920 or Lumia 820 and go through all the available ringtones, you'll have the pleasure to hear several tunes that aren't present on other WP8 devices. In fact, they don't come on any other smartphone on the market. These are the classical music ringtones that Nokia composed especially for its newest Windows Phone handsets, and the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra was given the task to perform them.

Nokia's sound engineers composed a total of 25 unique melodies, all of which are meant to sound loud and clear on the maker's smartphones. "They are short, and they all have a functional sounds element," clarified Aleksi Eeben, who was among the people in charge of the project. Four of the tunes come loaded on the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820, and the remaining will appear on future Nokia smartphones that are to be released next year. 

Has anyone heard any of Nokia's new ringtones? What do you think about them?

Maybe Microsoft should get rights to some of these ringtones for default tones. The ringtones on my previous device, WP7.5(Samsung), were horrible.

Err you do realize that it's a song, right? It exists as an MP3 file and thus it can be played on almost ANY phone. Even the puny iPhone.
