Just one day before it will unveil its first Windows Phone 8 handsets (most probably including the Lumia 920), today Nokia has announced the launch of its free Nokia Music service in the US.
Available for quite a while in other parts of the world, Nokia Music will allow US fans to discover and stream music on their Lumia 900 or Lumia 710 phones (yes, these are the only two handsets that let you use Nokia Music in the US at the moment). The service includes Nokia’s CREATE function, which “taps a library of millions of songs and generates a playlist based on, and inspired by, the artists users love.” Moreover, a Gig Finder feature can locate your position, and suggest live concerts and shows nearby.
The Nokia Music app can be downloaded on the Lumia 900 or 710 from Marketplace. It will certainly be available on Nokia’s upcoming Windows Phone 8 handsets, too, after these are released in the US.
