Nokia denies iTunes phone report

Updated

Nokia said today that it has no agreement with Apple to include iTunes on its upcoming N91 multimedia phone, despite an earlier report by the Finnish daily Taloussanomat saying the company did.

“There is no commercial agreement between Nokia and Apple to integrate iTunes into the N-series devices,” said Kari Tuutti, spokesman for Nokia’s multimedia division. “But since this is based on a computer platform, anybody—including Apple if they so wish—can very easily develop this kind of application and offer it to consumers, via the Internet for example.”

The Nokia N91 features a 4GB hard drive for music storage, a standard 3.5mm headphone jack, a 2-megapixel camera, and supports MP3, M4A, AAC and WMA song formats.

“We are not making any exclusive arrangements with any music store, but believe that we want to give the consumer the choice of where they want to purchase their music,” Tuutti added.
