…in the UK. Coming soon to a browser or N95 near you. Music from Nokia.

The AllAboutSymbian site reports the Nokia Music store, widely anticipated following the Nokia purchase of Loudeye last August. The company has cut deals with the 4 big labels and will be selling DRM’d tracks, initially only in the WMA format with other formats to come. The PC and mobile clients will interact to a limited extent and, and the PC client will support a plan for ‘all you can eat’ streaming of tracks (to be added to the mobile client later). Initially available on the N81 and N95 8G, you can expect that Nokia will soon incorporate the mobile client in many of their multimedia lines.

Looks like a solid offering to line up against iTunes + iPhone. It wil be interesting to see the rest of the industry respond.
