Nokia offers premium music service, Nokia Music+
Nokia has announced a premium version of its Nokia Music service. According to Jyrki Rosenberg, VP Entertainment at Nokia, people are so impressed with Nokia Mix Radio that they are surprised that the Finnish handset manufacturer offers it for free. And with the new features that Nokia is adding to the service with its premium Nokia Music+, it enhances the user experience even more.

Among the new capabilities, users will be able to get unlimited skips, allowing them to move from track to track. The free service currently allows users to download up to four mixes, each of which contains hours of music, and play them without an internet connection. The premium service, on the other hand, has no limit on the number of tunes you can enjoy offline. And Nokia Music+ brings you higher quality downloads at eight times the existing quality. You can also set a rule that downloads will only take place over a Wi-Fi connection.

One of the best new features that Nokia Music+ brings is the ability to see the lyrics of a song you're listening to, get displayed in either a scrolling list, Karaoke-style or via a display that you can manually scroll up and down. And the premium service allows you to listen to your tunes on your desktop PC, SmartTV or other connected devices, through the use of a web app.

If you like Nokia Music, you'll love Nokia Music+. With the service expected to roll out in a few weeks, information on how to sign-up surely will be made public shortly. The European market will be first to get the service, which will cost 3.99 EUR a month. While Nokia has not yet said if the service is coming to the U.S., Nokia did mention a $3.99 price for Nokia Music+ which would seem to indicate that the premium music application is U.S. bound. In the states, the free version of Nokia Music can be found on the Nokia Lumia 920 and the Nokia Lumia 820 (and its variants like the Nokia Lumia 822 for Verizon).

While Nokia is usually only recognized for producing quality mobile hardware, they also have some great online services that contribute to the value of their devices. It's hard to believe the company almost went broke! However, things have changed, and they will certainly contribute a lot to the success of WP8...

I don't know of another legit free service that offers no ads and lets you download multiple playlists for offline use. Do you?

Another very good value-added service for Nokia users.
In terms of PC interoperability, nothing beats Nokia PC Suite. It's like the Blackberry Playbook for the PC. You can use almost all phone features in the PC app.

Recent surveys about customer satisfaction tells us that Apple is leading and followed by HTC, Samsung and others.. Not Nokia. Offering a free Music service doesnt make a consumer satisfied.

Pretty neat feature. I wonder how much music it has? If its extremely limited, I wouldnt like it very much.
