Speaking at a press conference Wemppa Koivumaki, head of EMI Finland, said: “We want to be part of it. I believe strongly that when it launches we will be there, with a full offering.” So far Universal are the only major label signed up to the service, which is due to launch in the second half of 2008.

Comes With Music promises to lets users download unlimited tracks through their mobiles. The service will be bundled into the price of the Nokia handset or mobile contract as a yearly subscription with no per-download costs. After the period ends, the downloaded tracks will remain available to users. The service was unveiled in Dec and will launch later this year through Nokia’s Ovi web platform.

In Nov, Warner reportedly said it would not contribute its tracks to the Nokia service.
