Nokia has started shipping the N76 to key European, Asian and Middle Eastern markets with a device where technology and design come together to create a revolution in design for a multimedia computer. Using premium materials to enclose world-class Nseries features and experiences, Nokia has created an eye-catching device.

It also announced that it is working together with Sony BMG Music Entertainment to bring the award winning music of Travis to new owners of the N76 in selected markets.

Consumers who buy the N76 in selected countries (Austria, Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Norway and Sweden) will have as part of the sales package, a special voucher that gives the owners the rights to download five pre-selected Travis songs from the MSN music shops in their countries.

“Closer” the first single from the band’s much anticipated fifth studio album “The Boy With No Name” will be available for download after its release on April 23. Four other tracks selected from their previous studio albums will also be available.

“We’re very excited about being able to offer music from Travis, a genuinely thought provoking and inspirational band, for mobile enjoyment with the N76,” said Tapio Hedman, senior vice-president Multimedia, Nokia.

“Artist identity and target audience of Travis fit perfectly the Nokia brand and the Nokia N76 product” said Marcel Engh, Vice President, Brand Entertainment, Sony BMG Europe.

Nokia Nseries music fans will appreciate the dedicated quick cover keys on the N76, which let you quickly and easily control the device’s music features from the outside of the folded device, for instant tunes wherever you are. Holding up to 1500 tracks the N76 works with industry standard 3.5 mm headphones and supports the popular Windows Media DRM for optimal use.

The Nokia N76, which is based on S60 3rd Edition software on Symbian OS, is a perfect blend of style and substance. This latest addition to the Nseries portfolio brings a wide range of multimedia experiences to consumers, enabling them to create, consume and connect, using music, videos, images and the internet.
