Nokia 5800 Comes With Music reaches UK

Nokia 5800 CWM in UK

Nokia today launched a Comes with Music edition of the 5800 XpressMusic in Britain. The addition is exclusive to Orange UK and comes in a unique black-and-silver trim. Improving on the special-run 5800 available elsewhere, the touchscreen phone now gets a two-year subscription to Nokia's unlimited, copy-protected music service. It continues to let buyers keep their downloaded tracks whenever the subscription ends.

The Orange version also changes the price strategy and will be available for free as long as it's attached to a two-year Comes With Music cellular plan; these range from roughly 25 pounds ($37) per month for 200 minutes of call time and 300 text messages up to 44 pounds ($67) per month for 1,200 minutes and 500 messages. These don't include over-the-air downloads, however, which require either a data plan or paying for the specific bandwidth.

Sales of the phone start on May 29th.

The addition follows just after Nokia admitted that it had a poor UK launch for Comes With Music with both old phones and limited availability. Sales in other areas have typically been strong and usually began with the 5800 XpressMusic being an option from launch.
