Posts Tagged ‘Ovi Music’

I have been using Nokia’s Ovi Music, formerly known as Nokia Music, since it’s release in 2008. Or was it 2007? Since I had a N97 when it was released it made sense to buy music directly from Nokia as I was looking forward to the Comes With Music option some phones had. However, to use Ovi Music I had to sign up with an account in the UK.

Earlier today I happened to go to the site to see if anything was new and I noticed that the United States is now listed amongst the countries. When I selected it I saw a screen stating they’re applying the “final touches”!

I’ve used Napster and Amazon to buy music but I have always wanted one source for my music.  Going to the UK works fine but I would rather get the music from my home country. The Ovi Suite currently available for Nokia devices makes using Ovi Music an even easier choice since I can do everything right from Ovi Suite, including searching and purchasing music. But in the US you have to trick Ovi Suite into thinking you’re not in the US by changing your base location (currently set to the UK for me). If you select the United States you get the “we’re not in your area yet” message. Let’s home today’s discover means I’ll be able to get the music here in the states!
