Not forgetting the varying tastes of consumers, each Nokia Music Store that's launched in separate regions is tailor-made to fit the demands of the locality, and as we've seen on the Singapore portal, the Nokia Music Store caters to both the international and local music scene. With various artistes ranging from well-known icons such as Maroon 5 to our very own local artistes such as JJ Lin, the myriad of song titles will give consumers a wide variety of choices to choose from.
Enjoying the soundtrack selection on Nokia Music Store is just as varied, with three output options for the consumer. Whilst one can take on an unlimited streaming option from the music site for the price of S$16 per month, conventional methods such as individual tracks at S$2 or S$16 for a full album is also available. From the local perspective, the conventional options might be a tad pricey, but as with all services, there is a premium. Undoubtedly, the inclusion of unlimited streaming for the monthly S$16 fee could prove to be a popular choice amongst consumers who wish to savor a wider variety of music selection at a lower and more affordable cost. Payment methods, as we have seen, varies from store credits that can be purchased from any Nokia retail stores, to AXS machines and finally, the all-connecting credit card payments.
Beyond the pricing service, what really matters to the consumer is the availability of these soundtracks for your own usage. Allowing both your mobile device and PC to be in sync with each other when it comes to soundtrack downloading, the Nokia Music Store gives you the choice to listen to your music either on-the-go, or in the comforts of your room.
It goes without saying that Nokia has played its card right with the introduction of the Nokia Music Store in the absence of strong online music stores such as iTunes for this region. Furthermore, in the later part of 2008, we'll be seeing the inclusion of Nokia's very own music bundle packages that give consumers unlimited soundtrack download capability with every mobile phone purchase, so get ready for an exciting online music revolution at Nokia Music Store Singapore today!
