The future of Nokia Music was in doubt when Microsoft announced their acquisition of Nokia Devices and Services division. Nokia VP once commented that the following on future of Nokia Music,
“All I would say is that if you look at what they’ve done(Microsoft with Xbox Music) and what we’ve done carefully, there are some very complementary activities going on, and very little overlap,”
Chinese site CTech today reported that Nokia is planning to release HTML5 versions of their Music app for iOS and Android platforms. They even posted some screenshots of the upcoming Nokia Music HTML5 app in action. Find it after the break.

I think Microsoft would agree with this deal since they are already moving forward with Xbox Music app with native apps on different platforms.
