Nokia has been operating its own music streaming service and trying to compete against the big dogs in the market like iTunes and Spotify. Nokia's service is called MixRadio and it has now launched in China.




With the Chinese launch, Nokia has become the first global music streaming company to launch in the country. The launch gives Nokia access to half a billion internet users that access the web via a mobile device.


With the new launch, MixRadio is available in 31 countries around the world. To localize the service for Chinese users a bit, Nokia has teamed with Chinese musicians to create curated playlists. The artists include Khalil Fong, Tia Ray, and DJ Wordy.
