LONDON, England – Nokia and Orange today announced the Nokia 5800 will be available with Comes with Music exclusively to Orange UK customers. With price plans starting from £25 per month, Orange will be the only UK network to offer the Nokia 5800 and Comes with Music package, starting from May 29. What’s more, the 5800 will be exclusively available in black and silver.
The Nokia 5800 has been a huge success with over 2.6 million handsets sold in the first three months of 2009. The addition of the Comes with Music service, which offers free access to over 6 million tracks, to Orange UK customers is sure to make it even more popular.
Users will be able to download as much music as they like over the course of the two year contract. Five different Comes with Music price plans will be on offer from Orange, each including inclusive calls and minutes. The handset will be available free on all five price plans.

Francois Mahieu, Director of Devices for Orange UK, said:
“We’re extremely excited about being the exclusive UK operator to offer Comes With Music on the Nokia 5800. We are always looking for ways to remove the barriers that stand between our customers and the things they love and believe that by offering this service, we are able to do just that.”
Mark Loughran, Managing Director, Nokia UK, said:
“Mobile music is key to both Orange and Nokia, so we’re delighted to have them as our exclusive partner for Comes With Music on our best-seller – the Nokia 5800. The ability to download all the music you love, free and legally from the Nokia Music Store on a great choice of Orange tariffs will change music forever”.
We’ve long been fans of both Comes with Music and the Nokia 5800 here on Conversations. Success has already been seen when both are combined in other countries and we’re bound to see the same thing happen in the UK. This is a huge boost for the Comes with Music service in the UK and with its passion for innovation and music, Orange is a perfect fit.
