"While we don't have specific numbers to share, we have been very pleased with the Comes with Music launches around the world".
Nokia has however, revealedsome
statistics about the service, including the fact that download-happy new users download on average 200 to 300 tracks in the first few weeks.

In addition, Nokia says Comes with Music customers are downloading 20 times more back catalogue tracks than Music Store customers, suggesting the unlimited model sees a wider breadth of downloads.
