Nokia Remix 2008 Singapore was held today at 9am at Odeon Towers, Supper Club. Supper Club is a beautiful place the huge sofa chairs are so comfortable that I almost fell asleep. I knew pretty much everything that Nokia is going to announce thanks to the pre-media briefing yesterday.
I have finally got the chance to take a video of the user interface of the XpressMusic 5800 and I have uploaded it to YouTube. Nothing is new here, for more information, you can check out the post below this or check the specifications at http://www.forum.nokia.com/devices/5800_XpressMusic.
Here is the video of the XpressMusic 5800 User Interface:
As usual, sorry for the out of focus digital camera video recording, but I don’t mind a sponsor for a dedicated HD video recording camcorder, any takers?
“Nokia Come With Music” service is also announced. Let me summarize it in points so that it is easier to digest.
- It is a pre-paid service that is bundled to Nokia mobile phones. Currently on the 5310 XpressMusic, N95 8GB and 5800 XpressMusic.
- You need to pay a little bit more for the bundled phone. Price for Singapore is still unknown at the moment.
- You get 1 year of unlimited music downloads through Nokia Music Store. 18 months option are coming in 2009.
- The music you downloaded, you get to keep it after the 1 year. Nokia spokesperson keep emphasising this.
- Like it or not it is DRMed.
- If I am not wrong, the format is WMA and not MP3.
Personally, I am not in favour of DRM and WMA. I don’t mind paying a little more for non-DRM and MP3.
Here are some of the pictures that I took:
