Nokia Music+ is better than that.
Rosenberg says Nokia Music+ introduces features like infinite skips and unlimited downloads and Nokia is opening the doors for unlimited music discovery at only €3.99 per month.
Rosenberg says,“This is for people who care enough about music to pay something for more quality and choice, but don’t want to pay €9.99 monthly.”
