Submission + - Nokia shuts down Ovi store and "Comes with Music" (

dsavi writes:

Nokia's oft-maligned unlimited music service looks set to be coming to an end after internal documents were leaked online. According to Esphoneblog, no more Ovi Music Unlimited (formerly known as Comes With Music) devices will be shipped, and after 16 January this year customers have not been able to renew their unlimited music license. The high price of the devices, as well as the music being hard to download and locked to a PC and phone, are some of the reasons touted for the low user base – had Nokia managed to bring DRM Comes With Music to everywhere, and not just China, then perhaps it would have been a different story.

To me, Nokia's "Comes with Music" service was like a predecessor to Spotify, which is what makes this so disappointing- I wouldn't be surprised if it was competition from Spotify itself that caused this change.
