Live at Nokia World 2011: Nokia Music makes music personal & portable

If you love music, you’re going to love Nokia Music for Windows Phone.  It takes the things that you already love about Zune – millions of tracks to download, personalization, and great audio quality – and extends it to make your music experience even better.    Mark Wheatly, Nokia Music’s product manager, took me through the apps to show me some of its unique features.

Fun fact about Mark before we get to the video – this guy has over 95,000 (yes, you read that right) tracks in his music library.  That officially makes him the most hard-core music nerd I know.   That also means that when he talks music, you should listen.  Here’s what he had to say about Nokia Music:

Streaming is great, but what really made me say “wow” when I saw Nokia Music was its offline functionality; the ability to create a custom streaming station and save it for offline listening will be great for my many air travels.  The gig finder is also pretty cool – I love the option to find a live show wherever I am in the world.  And don’t forget about that personalized radio feature…I’m kind of curious to see what “percentage” it assigns to my different tastes in music.

I’ll be at Nokia World all of today and tomorrow, blogging about the great stuff I find on the show floor, interviewing interesting people from both Nokia and Microsoft, and sharing as much as I can find about what the future holds for Nokia and Windows Phone. Keep an eye on the blog for new posts and follow me on Twitter for more sharable stuff from Nokia World!

And remember that you can keep up on all the latest stuff from Windows Phone through the Windows Phone Facebook Page and @WindowsPhone Twitter handle.
