Nokia's standard ringtone is a classic. Not satisfied with having a classic, however, it seems that Nokia is determined to get with the times, market to the hip young kiddos, and be fresh and relevant in the not-at-all-diminishingly-important world of ringtones. How? That's easy. Dubstep, bro. Kids love the dubsteps. Right? RIGHT?!
Apparently they do, because the 24 second dubstep-tastic ringtone by Valerio Alessandro Sizzi won the Nokia Tune competition with 1000 likes on Facebook, winning against 6,200 other entries. In addition to having his ringtone pre-loaded on over 100 million Nokia phones (every musician's dream), he also gets paid (actually every musician's dream) a cool $10,000 for his efforts. Coincidentally enough, that appears to be exactly how much Nokia's remaining dignity is worth, and judging by their comments on the winner, they seem to be glad to be rid of the pesky stuff.
