Nokia 5235 comes to the UAE with unlimited music
New touchscreen phone is estimated to cost AED 1,000 in the United Arab Emirates
Nokia has just released the 5235 Comes with Music edition handset in the Middle East, offering unlimited access to millions of tracks for a year.
Nokia 5235 Comes with Music is a 3.2" touchscreen device with a 2 megapixel camera and, with the support of up to 16 GB of additional memory, can store up to 3,400 tracks. The new device, which is estimated to retail for AED 1,000 in the UAE, follows the launch of the Nokia X6 Comes with Music edition in February that costs more than AED 2,000.
All Comes with Music edition phones come with 12 months of unlimited access to music tracks available through Ovi Music.
"The new Nokia 5235 Comes with Music edition is a fantastic device that allows access to millions of tracks for download. Adding this new device to the Comes with Music offering ensures that we are giving consumers more choice and wider access to this fantastic service," said Frederic Copper-Royer, music manager, Nokia Middle East and Africa.
Copper-Royer also revealed the musical preferences of consumers in the region, based on the feedback and download activity seen since the Nokia X6 launch.
"Interestingly, approximately 40% of all music downloaded is Arabic music. In terms of overall popularity of genres, international pop music leads, followed by oriental pop, RNB, Khaleeji, and Hip-Hop," he revealed.
