Following today's announcement that sees Nokia's unlimited Come With Music service launching in the UK, Antony Douglas, head of content at O2 has offered a comment to Pocket-lint:
"We want to make sure we offer our customers a wide choice of options to get the maximum benefit of music through O2 and will be watching Nokia’s ‘Come with Music’ package with interest."
"O2’s strategy is to ensure we partner with the best companies in the music industry. Alongside our sponsorship of The O2, the O2 Wireless festival and O2 Undiscovered, we work with Napster Mobile and Sony BMG, who support our recently launched MyPlay service, to give our customers access to some of the world’s most popular and celebrated artists."
The comment ends with a mention of the iPhone, described by Apple's Steve Jobs as the "best iPod ever".
"Similarly, all our iPhone customers have access to iTunes, the world’s largest music store."
