Nokia Music Store opens in Singapore
Nokia recently opened the doors to its music store in Singapore, offering millions of tracks from major international artists, Asian artists, and independent labels.
Among the first independent Asian labels to join Nokia’s new project are Ocean Butterflies Music and Rock Records Singapore. Even an independent label from Thailand, RS Digital, has begun offering music from Thailand via the Singaporean web site.
To access the Nokia Music Store in Singapore, you will of course need to sign up for an account, which you can afterwards use to log on to the web site regardless of what device you use. You can access the Nokia Music Store via your PC or any mobile device as long as you have access to the Internet. Unfortunately, Firefox users won’t be getting in on any of the fun, though, because accessing the Nokia Music Store from the said browser brings up an error page saying that the browser is not supported.
Songs from the Singaporean Nokia Music Store will cost $2 Singaporean Dollars (SGD) or roughly $1.50 USD a piece. Whole albums, meanwhile, can be had for only $16 SGD or nearly $12 USD. Aside from that you may also purchase unlimited PC streaming on your PC for $16.00 SGD a month, which is the same price as buying the whole album itself. The choice is up to you.
You can access Nokia Music Store in Singapore using Internet Explorer 6.0 or later, with a PC running Windows XP or Vista, by going to music.nokia.com.sg. You may also access it with any of the latest Nokia multimedia devices, like those from the Nseries.
So if you’re itching to get your hands (or ears) on some authentic Asian music, hop on over to the Nokia Music Store in Singapore. Me? I think I’ll pass.
