Selling old mobile and switching to Nokia may be good move for music fans

Music lovers may currently be in the swing of the festival season, but selling an old mobile phone and investing in a new Nokia device may help them keep up to date with their favourite tunes all year round.

Rhiain, writing for the Nokia Conversations blog, draws attention to a trio of apps available via the company's Ovi Store that could be of interest to band and gig fans.

Firstly, the author recommends Drum Box - an app that gives Nokia phone owners the chance to make full use of a virtual drum kit as well as 40 other instruments.

Next up is Gig Finder - a download that does exactly what it says, helping users to locate where and when their favourite groups are playing and perhaps alerting them to events they would have been otherwise unaware of.

The final recommendation is Playlist DJ, which features smart technology that matches up music from a phone's memory to create an itinerary of tunes to match any particular mood.

Nokia is expected to release the eagerly awaited N8 handset this year, which could prove the ideal device on which to try out the apps.
