Nokia has since last October planned to offer its Lumia Windows Phone users a free music streaming service with Pandora-like radio features (RAIN coverage here). That service has been available to European users for months, but today Nokia brings the service to the U.S.
Nokia Music is free and replicates a radio experience in at least two ways. First, it includes a line-up of more than 150 curated playlists created by a "US-based team of 'musicologists.'"
Second, users can create their own custom playlists "with a Pandora-like feature that pulls in songs based on a selected artist and plays them back in random order, without advertisements," reports Engadget (here).
