As a Nokia Comes with Music user, I received an email today announcing that the Comes with Music service will soon become a part of Ovi and will be titled Ovi Music Unlimited. “With a new name and a sleek new look that is easier to use, with Ovi Music Unlimited you’ll still have access to millions of free tracks, plus, a faster, easier way to browse, search and download music.” India has already seen this transition from Comes with Music to OMU (Ovi Music Unlimited), as have a few others, and it seems that Nokia is continuing to re-brand its Comes with Music services with UK consumers.

Rafe Blanford was lucky enough to visit Nokia’s Espoo (Helsinki) offices, and had the opportunity to look around Nokia’s Experience Lounge which showcased all of Nokia’s latest products and services. Within the Experience Lounge, Nokia had set up most of its Ovi services, along with a huge collection of nearly all the handsets and accessories ever made by the Finnish giants. It reminds you of how game-changing Nokia were, with most of the technology in the devices appearing way ahead of its time. Do you remember how many of these you owned? Check out the video walkthrough after the jump and share your Nokia history.
