Nokia's touchscreen 'iPhone rival'


Nokia is launching a touchscreen phone that connects to a music store with 2 million free tracks.

It has revealed the 5800 XpressMusic phone while announcing details of its Comes with Music service, which will allow 12 months of unlimited music downloads on pay-as-you-go phones.

From 16 October, the bundle will be sold for 129.95 exclusively from the Carphone Warehouse.

The service boasts more than two million tracks, available first on Nokia's 5310 XpressMusic handset and on more models later.

Major music label EMI has announced that it is taking part in the service.

Rory Cellan-Jones has been testing the new phone.
