Sep 4, 2012, 7:15 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Nokia today announced the availability of Nokia Music to Lumia smartphone devices in the U.S. Owners of the Lumia 900 and Lumia 710 will be able to access and stream music from Nokia, which is offering more than a million tracks, 150 curated playlists, offline caching, and custom-generated playlists. The service is free to use, free of advertising, and doesn't require users to register or sign up. The app also offers a feature called Gig Finder, which will use the location information of the smartphone to offer suggestions on local live music performances. The app can be downloaded directly from the Lumia 900 and Lumia 710, which run Windows Phone.
The Lumia 900 is Nokia's most important smartphone launch ever. Microsoft and AT&T have a lot riding on this device, too, as its success will shape the future of Windows Phone in the US and beyond.
