It's clear that the Industry thinks Music on Phones is the big money spinner for 2005, but is it something the usr wants? Carlo Longino at The Feature ( asks the question, with some nice breakdowns on the ringtone/download market, and asking why teh Sony Ericsson Walkman Phone still needs a camera to sell it.

I think that anyone who says that music isn't what users want on mobile phones need to remember Psion saying that users don't want colour screens and Palm saying that users don't want multimedia.

I think that Nokia needs to try harder when it comes to mobile music and the recent announcements made by Nokia (as reported here) are welcome and should let Microsoft know who's boss.
