Nokia to Take on Apple at its Own Game

If Apple encroached on Nokia’s turf when it introduced its much-heralded iPhone, Nokia is striking back by taking aim at Apple’s dominance in the digital music biz. On Wednesday Aug. 29, in a gala event in London, Nokia CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo announced that his company will soon fire up its long-anticipated music downloading service. The Nokia Music Store will go live later this year as a crucial component of a new Nokia website called Ovi. Competing against downloading sites like Apple’s iTunes, it will let consumers download millions of songs directly onto their PCs and Macs or, unlike iTunes, straight onto their phones via mobile airwaves.,8599,1658484,00.html
