Nokia's free Music app has been one of the differentiators that the company has used to separate its Lumias from other Windows Phones. Providing radio-style streaming of curated playlists its been an excellent addition to the Windows Phone fold.
Now the service is about to take a forward leap and start competing with Spotify and other services - including XBox Music. The subscription / download model is pretty much the same as that employed elsewhere, however the €4 Monthly price tag is a significantly better entry point than any of the competition. Spotify asks £10 per month for its service, Microsoft £89 per annum.
Music+ as the service will be known, looks like a winner based on price and capability, although being restricted to Nokia's own devices somewhat narrows the market.
Still a good effort from the Finns and, if it makes it across to Auckland, something I will be definitely adding to my Lumia.
