Not everyone is happy with "Comes with Music"

Whilst I am personally looking forward to Nokia’s “Comes with Music” (although I’m not sure why as I never listen to that much music), not everyone is so happy. They seem to be having a right old whinge over at Engadget:

-Obviously ‘free to user’ is not the same as free, otherwise the record labels wouldn’t make any money, but the $5 “monthly tithe” on all handsets will be barely noticeable to the average end user.
-Of course the stuff will be “slathered in DRM”, what do you expect for $5?? Unlike the majority of bloggers I have no problem with DRM, as long as the limitations are CLEARLY STATED before purchase.
