Play Digital Music

Turn your phone into an MP3 music player.

From the Sony Walkman to the Apple iPod, personal music players are among the most successful mobile devices in tech history. As the mobile phone becomes the convergence point of personal communications and entertainment, we all want it to double as a music player so that we no longer need to carry multiple devices.

Most Nokia phones have the capability to play digital music files:

  • Almost all Nokia phones can play Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) files. MIDI files contain musical notes, and the phone emulates musical instruments to play those notes. The advantage of MIDI files is that they are extremely small. A typical MIDI file is only several kilobytes. You can store thousands of them in your phone’s memory. The disadvantage is that MIDI files can only simulate musical instruments, not voices. So, you cannot have any actual songs recorded in MIDI.
