The sound is recognized throughout the world is just the start of Nokia, the one that sounds when we turn on the phone, and probably many do not know, is taken from a classical piece called “Gran Vals” composed by Spanish musician Francisco Tárrega composed in 1902. In 1993 Nokia acquired the Gran Vals to make this particular part of the melody and record it as his trademark start their computers. It is then the world’s most popular ringtone, since the number of units sold is estimated that sounds about 1.8 billion times a day around the world, being then the piece of song and the most popular ringtone ever.
This acquisition will effectively put into the market with the Nokia 2110 in 1994, a Waltz Part a monophonic ringtone and Nokia 8110i in 1997 became the first phone to allow downloading of ringtones, from then on feature sounds was improving slowly, until in 2001 it introduced the Nokia 7650 phone with the first option to play polyphonic ringtones.
Nokia’s story does not end with music with this acquisition and enforcement of the ringtone, but also has managed to become the largest manufacturer-worldwide-in the industry of digital music players and radios digitized.
For the year 2005 was presented one of the models more “luxury” (at least so far), the Nokia 8800 that was characterized by an aesthetically stainless steel finish, counted among its features the ability to become a digital music player for its compatibility with mp3 files. and AAC. addition to the tones that are particularly evident in this phone were specially composed by Ryuichi Sakamoto, a famous Japanese composer and actor even has an Oscar under her belt by the composition of the soundtrack of the film The Last Emperor.
Later released version also known as Nokia 8800D Sciroco Edition, including ringtones composed by Brian Eno, while in the same year he launched the Nokia N91 with 4GB of internal memory which is touted as being capable of storing up to 3000 songs. Such was the success of this promotion that ends the first phone featuring the now famous line XpressMusic, nothing less than the Nokia 3250, capable of supporting all types of audio formats, which also had a library specially designed to store music and had its own equalization system.
In 2006, progress continued in the musical field through the impetus given by the N Series and the enlargement of the XpressMusic family, the much hyped Comes With Music that was made official in 2008 which still stands despite the doubts and of the changes that occurred in the gallery music downloads would soon be called Nokia Ovi Music Store Music.
We will then include 21 countries with the famous music service from Nokia Music Store despite XpressMusic line has disappeared as such, the N series, X and E are continuing strong with sound standards and Nokia always discharge has had.
