Nokia's Comes With Music music subscription service for mobile phones is apparently going to be landing in Australia soon. Australian IT quotes a Reuters report which says that the service, already operational in the UK, will appear in Singapore and Sydney in "the next 10 weeks". I'm still not sure whether music subscription services make sense, but it will almost certainly have to be an improvement on Sanity's much-derided Loadit service (if you're among the haters, here's some methods of removing it from Windows Media Player). Unusually for a subscription service, the music accessed via the Nokia offering can be retained if the subscription expires, although with a high-priced phone and limited download options that could still prove a poor-value deal. What features would you like to see on a phone music subscription plan?
