Comes With Music not being renamed: Nokia
A recent rumor that Nokia has rebranded its Comes With Music service to Ovi Music Unlimited in the UK has been denied by the company. Following a change in its Indian website that hinted at a possible change, the company said just that the regular online music store will now be called Ovi Music rather than Nokia Music Store in the UK and Ireland, with other countries getting the newly named store before the spring. All 22 countries where Nokia is sold will receive the Ovi brand in 2010.
The Ovi branding will also carry over to other services the company offers, including the mapping service, which will now be called Ovi Maps. Ovi Music first appeared in Russia in November, before coming to Malaysia, the Middle East, and most recently, India. In other markets, including throughout Europe and North America, Nokia's music service continues to be called Comes With Music, though for how long is not known. [via Pocket-Lint]
