One of the features that makes the Nokia Lumia Windows Phone devices unique is Nokia Music. However, those of us in the US have never been able to use this free streaming and offline caching music service, until now. Today, Nokia announced Nokia Music is coming to the US on the Lumia 900 and Lumia 710 devices. With this service on my Nokia Lumia 900, I now need to evaluate whether paying for the Zune Music Pass is worth it moving forward.
Nokia Music lets you stream from over 150 playlists. You can also create your own playlist from the millions of songs available. There are no ads or registration and the service is free on Nokia Lumia phones. You can download songs to listen to while offline as well. Nokia also includes their Gig Finder service that helps you find local concerts and shows.
I don't yet see this in the Marketplace, but will keep looking for it and am excited about trying it out on my Lumia 900.
