* 3 UK to sell Nokia's N95 Comes with Music phone - source
LONDON Oct 14 Mobile operator 3 UK is to sell
Nokia's NOK1V.HE N95 Comes With Music handset which offers
unlimited music downloads, an industry source told Reuters on
Both 3 and Nokia declined to comment.
The Comes With Music service will first go on sale in
Britain on Oct. 16 via a pre-paid 5310 Xpress Music phone, and
the monthly contract N95 will be supported and sold by 3 from
next month, said the source, who had direct knowledge of the
3 is owned by Hutchison Whampoa 0013.HK.
The move to sell music as part of a phone package is a new
offering from Nokia and analysts had said that it would struggle
unless operators agreed to support and sell the phone with a
monthly contract over their networks.
Many see the offering as a direct challenge to Apple's
(AAPL.O) hugely successful music service iTunes.
