Nokia is looking for a new Nokia tune. Make one and earn $10.000
5 September 2011 by Olav Hellesø-Knutsen
We all know the famous Nokia tune from 1994. Nokia want to spice it up and they are inviting creative melody makers to help them making a new tune
We can just guess how many times the Nokia Tune has been played. Being the largest mobile phone maker for decades, Nokia has sold billions of phones since 1994 and the Nokia tune must have been one of the most played melody ever.
Today Nokia reached out asking for help making the new version of the tune. The new tune will be part of Nokia's 2012 device line up. It is also interesting to read that the tune will be available on approximately 100 million devices. From that, we can guess that Nokia are estimating to sell 100 million new devices in 2012.

Number 4 and 12 are the best from that list i think, would give it a shot myself if i was any good at composing tunes but sadly i'm not.
Steven Elop wants to erase all Nokia traits.
What's next, the name Nokia?
This is actually worth it. Nokia needed a complete overhaul and this contest will provide new ideas for the next billion generation of Nokia phone users. Nokia has used that early & worlds original ringtone for more than a gods age and ever possible iteration - it NEEDs to die (recall that dieing Nokia tone?).
Sony Ericsson has their own signature tune aswell
