Nokia, EMI, Free Record Shop and Robert’s Coffee promote local download of mobile content

 

Espoo, Finland –The consumers are now able to download the latest music and related content from EMI artists to their phones in selected Free Record Shop music stores and Robert’s Coffee cafés in Helsinki area, Finland. The service is called bFree.

 

The content download is made possible with Nokia Local Content Channel Solution, CoolZone, launched earlier today. CoolZone is a local delivery channel for any digital content and uses Bluetooth technology to distribute the content to the consumers’ phones in retail locations. The service is always customized according to the retailer’s or service provider’s own brand.

Once music fans enter a participating store, they can download the bFree application to their phone, enabling them to browse available content. During the trial period, content downloads are free of charge, and closely linked to existing campaigns in the store.

 

“Rich digital content is widely available and requires an efficient distribution channel. Local mobility solutions create new types of business possibilities to individuals, location owners and enterprises. CoolZone is a Bluetooth technology based content distribution system available to any retailer or location owner who wants to offer or sell digital content to their customers, and thus enhance the in-store experience,” said Sakari Kotola, Director, Nokia Ventures Organization.

This deal gives us a new and innovative means of doing that.”

 

“bFree helps us appeal to customers as number one entertainment shop chain where you can experience something new each visit. With bFree we can offer contemporary extra services and campaigns as well as digital content outside our internet shop. Together with Robert’s Coffee we create our customers the possibility to familiarize themselves with latest news of the music world in two different kinds of environment” said Elena Kataja, General Manager, Free Record Shop.

 

“One of the aspects of the service is using CoolZone to cross promote products to customers visiting Free Record Shop and Robert’s Coffee. We have similar customers segments and locations, which gives great possibilities for that. This also fits well with our new netcup concept which enables consumers to surf Internet when enjoying a cup of coffee in our coffee shops,” said Tomi Miininen, Managing Director, Robert’s Coffee.

CoolZone brings mobile content sales to retail

A new solution complements other digital content delivery channels with local relevancy

 

Espoo, Finland – Nokia today introduced the Nokia Local Content Channel Solution, CoolZone, that is a Bluetooth based end-to-end solution for distributing digital content to consumers’ phones in retail locations. Local mobility solutions create new types of business possibilities to individuals, location owners and enterprises. With CoolZone, retailers like music stores, phone shops and cinemas, can offer promotional or paid content, such as mobile games, wallpapers, videos and music, to consumers in their stores.

 

“For consumers, CoolZone is a new and easy way to get rich mobile content and information. Every time the consumer visits a store, which has CoolZone service, she or he can easily browse, preview and buy the latest content to his or her phone. When using the service for the first time, the consumer downloads a retailer branded application to the phone in the retail location based on instructions provided in the store. The payment for the downloaded content is done either over the counter using vouchers or using premium text messages,” said Sakari Kotola, Director, Nokia Ventures Organization. “CoolZone is a truly smooth content download tool for consumers.”

 

The service is always customized according to the retailer’s or service provider’s brand. In a way, it is a digital shelf in a physical store. The retailer can easily change both the design of the application and the content during special campaigns, and the consumers will automatically experience the new campaign the next time they use the service. But CoolZone is not just a tool to sell content and organize promotional campaigns. For the retailer, it is also an efficient tool for loyalty programs.

 

The Nokia Local Content Channel Solution, CoolZone is based on Bluetooth connection between a phone and a service point. The solution consists of client software for the phone (Symbian client for Series 60, Java for Nokia Series 40 and other manufacturers’ phones), a small multiradio Nokia Service Point LCP10 installed in each service location and the Nokia Service Manager LCM10 for centrally managing the service points and the content.  The solution enables the delivery of any content supported by the phones, including DRM protected content. While the service is currently Bluetooth based, WLAN will be one of expected additions in the near future, as more phones will offer WLAN capability.

 

The Nokia Local Content Channel Solution, CoolZone will be commercially available in the 1st quarter of 2006.  Nokia will optionally also provide the solution to retailers based on a hosting model where Nokia takes care of everything from content management to technical set-up.

 

CoolZone will be demonstrated at the Nokia Mobility Conference 2005 in Palau de Congressos de Catalunya, Barcelona, Spain, during November 2-3, 2005.

Nokia announces world’s first commercial solution for managing DVB-H broadcast services

 

Espoo, Finland - Nokia today announced the world’s first commercial service management solution for DVB-H services, the Nokia Mobile Broadcast Solution 3.0. The Nokia Mobile Broadcast Solution (MBS) 3.0 supports the broadcasting of different types of digital content such as live TV, radio and video clips over DVB-H networks to mobile devices. The key features of the MBS 3.0 include the Electronic Service Guide (ESG), a consumer interface in the mobile device for searching available services, setting alerts for upcoming programs and for the viewing selection. Additionally, the MBS 3.0 offers service protecion, flexible content pricing schemes and provides consumers with an easy way to purchase viewing rights.

 

The MBS 3.0 is based on open standards such as DVB-H. It fully implements the Open Air Interface (OAI) 1.0 implementation guidelines which Nokia published in August 2005 on www.nokia.com/mobiletv. The Open Air Interface specifies how mobile TV devices connect with the DVB-H network and the servers of the overall mobile TV service infrastructure. The OAI specification was published to enable multivendor interoperability in the mobile TV industry.

 

“Nokia has been an active participant in several mobile TV pilots over the past two years, during which the consumer response has been very encouraging. The feedback collected from mobile and broadcast network operators and media companies has proved invaluable, making it possible for Nokia to create this solution. By offering a safe, secure and future proof solution for managing mobile TV broadcasting, we are creating the momentum for the mobile TV market to take off during 2006,” said Richard Sharp, Vice President, Rich Media, Nokia.

 

The MBS 3.0 offers mobile broadcst service providers a single platform which can serve several content providers. At the same time, it offers content providers a protected distribution channel to mobile users. Broadcasters get flexibility in defining the geographical distribution coverage and service bundles consisting of free-to-air, subscription based and pay-per-view services as well as setting pricing schemes. The MBS 3.0 supports mobile service providers in offering broadcast related e-commerce and interctive services. Furthermore, the MBS 3.0 solution provides invoicing for prepaid cellular subscribers.

 

The Nokia Mobile Broadcast Solution 3.0 will be available in the first quarter of 2006. In 2006 Nokia will bring the first mobile TV device to the market with in-built DVB-H capabilities. The MBS 3.0 is the third implementation of a DVB-H service management solution which has been piloted globally already with several customers since 2003.

Leading mobile wireless technology companies call on European Commission to investigate Qualcomm’s anti-competitive conduct

 

Broadcom, Ericsson, NEC, Nokia, Panasonic Mobile Communications and Texas Instruments have each filed Complaints to the European Commission requesting that it investigate and stop Qualcomm’s anti-competitive conduct in the licensing of essential patents for 3G mobile technology.

 

The companies state that Qualcomm is violating EU competition law and failing to meet the commitments Qualcomm made to international standard bodies around the world that it would license its technology on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms.  Absent these commitments, the WCDMA 3G standard would not have been adopted.  Qualcomm is infringing these rules by:

 

                  trying to exclude competing manufacturers of chipsets for mobile phones from the market and preventing others from entering. To this end, Qualcomm has committed a number of abuses, ranging from the refusal to licence essential patents to potential chipset competitors on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms to offering lower royalty rates to handset customers who buy chipsets exclusively from Qualcomm.

 

                  charging royalties for its WCDMA essential patents that are excessive and disproportionate; in particular by imposing the same royalty rate on WCDMA 3G handsets as it does for CDMA2000 3G handsets despite the fact that Qualcomm has contributed far less technology to the WCDMA 3G standard than it has to the CDMA2000 standard.

 

The companies believe that Qualcomm’s anti-competitive behaviour has harmful effects for the mobile telecommunications sector in Europe, as well as elsewhere, because carriers and consumers are facing higher prices and fewer choices.

Company Statements:

 

“Major telecommunications equipment companies on three continents are standing up and saying that Qualcomm’s business practices are unfair, anticompetitive and ultimately illegal. Qualcomm’s illegal practices stifle competition and ultimately hurt the consumer.”   David A. Dull, Senior Vice President, Business Affairs; General Counsel; and Secretary, Broadcom Corporation

 

“Qualcomm committed to standard setting organisations that it would license its technology on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms. In spite of this and in breach of competition law, Qualcomm is charging excessive and disproportionate royalties. This means ultimately that consumers may have to pay more than they should for their mobile handsets.”

Kasim Alfalahi, Vice President IPR Licensing and Patents, Ericsson AB

 

“Qualcomm’s anti-competitive licensing practices and excessive royalties are restricting innovation and the development of 3G mobile telephony to the detriment of consumer choice.”

Botaro Hirosaki, Senior Vice President, NEC Corporation

 

“Intellectual property rights have an increasing role in business.  There are rules of law that apply to the licensing business, and patentees and other intellectual property rights owners cannot ignore them.”

Ilkka Rahnasto, Vice President, Intellectual Property Rights, Nokia Corporation

 

“Panasonic Mobile Communications believes that Qualcomm is charging excessive and disproportional royalty rates in breach of EU competition law and industry requirements to offer licenses for essential patents on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms.”

Haruo Suzuki, Director,Member of the Board, Panasonic Mobile Communications Co. Ltd.

 

“Standards are established to guide the industry’s technology development and provide a healthy environment for innovation and competition.  We believe Qualcomm has abused its licensing position in certain standards and has inhibited legitimate competition.  If this conduct goes unchecked, the risk is that consumers in Europe and around the world will pay higher prices for mobile phones and services and have less access to innovative products.”

Joe Hubach, General Counsel, Texas Instruments Incorporated

Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Nokia establish joint laboratory for high-impact research

 

Cambridge, MA, USA and Espoo, Finland - The Massachusetts Institute of Technology Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) and Nokia Research Center today announced a research collaboration to advance the state of the art in mobile computing and communications technologies.

 

CSAIL and Nokia will establish a new research facility – the Nokia Research Center Cambridge – near the MIT campus, where researchers from MIT and Nokia will work closely together on a new vision for mobile computing.

 

“Information and communication technologies are becoming ever more critical in all aspects of our personal and professional lives,” said MIT President Susan Hockfield. “By carrying out long-term research in these fields, including novel uses of hand-held devices, MIT and Nokia will make new communication opportunities and services available for people around the globe.”

 

“For Nokia, this is a fresh approach to our research collaboration with universities,” said Dr. Bob Iannucci, head of Nokia Research Center. “Bringing together the collective expertise of MIT and Nokia in mobile computing and communications provides a vehicle for rapidly generating new concepts and bringing innovations to the marketplace on a large scale.”

 

The collaborative work of the Nokia Research Center Cambridge will center on a view of the future where small handheld devices such as mobile phones will become parts of an “ecosystem” of information, services, peripherals, sensors and other devices. Research will address new user interfaces that incorporate speech and other modalities, new mobile computing platforms – including low power hardware platforms and wireless communication, as well as new software architectures. Researchers will also address new ways of managing information: The use of Semantic Web technologies – an extension of the current Web developed in part at CSAIL and at the Nokia Research Center – will enable devices to more intuitively and automatically understand interconnected terms, information and services.

 

Approximately twenty researchers from MIT and twenty researchers from Nokia will participate in joint projects under the direction of a joint steering committee. Dr. James Hicks from Nokia Research Center has been named director of the Nokia Research Center Cambridge. Professor Arvind, Johnson Professor of Computer Science and Engineering, will be the program manager.

 

“This is a totally unique kind of collaboration for both MIT and Nokia,” said Professor Rodney Brooks, director of CSAIL.  “Unlike most university-industry alliances, where researchers work at their own pace – often at opposite ends of the globe – the joint laboratory with Nokia will bring a dynamic group of scientists into close physical proximity in an open, creative and dynamic environment.”

 

This new collaboration builds on the foundation of a strong relationship formed during past collaborations between MIT and Nokia. Most recently, Nokia was a founding partner in the MIT Oxygen Alliance, a major research project involving more than 150 researchers at CSAIL with the goal of creating a new breed computers devoted to serving people’s needs.

 

The Nokia Research Center Cambridge will be located in the Kendall Square area of Cambridge, Massachusetts, a five-minute walk from CSAIL’s main headquarters. It will begin operations on January 1, 2006. Five initial research projects have already been planned.

Nokia launches OMA-compliant PoC and Presence at the Nokia Mobility Conference

 

Also demonstrates its Unified Core Network portfolio for fixed-mobile convergence

 

Espoo, Finland - At the Nokia Mobility Conference in Barcelona, Nokia will be highlighting its range of innovative Unified Core Network solutions for fixed-mobile convergence (FMC), as well as launching its OMA-compliant Push to talk over Cellular (PoC) and Presence solutions.

 

“Nokia is advancing strongly in the convergence space,” says Mika Vehviläinen, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Networks, Nokia.  “Nokia’s portfolio of core network products and solutions offers operators one of the best fixed-mobile convergence propositions in the business.  With a firm foundation in mobility and IP-based solutions as well as new offerings for Voice over IP and Unlicensed Mobile Access, our Unified Core Network is an ideal enabler for FMC.”

 

“Our track record in providing innovative core solutions such as push to talk and mobile softswitches is outstanding,” continues Vehviläinen.  “We are Number One in the 3GPP Release 4 mobile softswitch market with over 70 customers for our MSC Server system, which is already in live use in over 20 commercial networks.  Likewise, we have the largest share of the PoC market in GSM, supplying commercial PoC systems to 43 networks and trialling in more than 30 more.  We have an excellent range of products to build on, and the solutions we are introducing at Barcelona reinforce this commitment to give our customers the solutions that make the most of convergence.”

 

The new release 2.0 of Nokia’s PoC solution is available in Q1 2006.  It provides compliance with the OMA standard, which enables full interoperability with OMA-compliant terminals and networks from other vendors.  Release 2.0 also supports the Nokia List Management Server release 1.0, which allows subscribers to use a single list of contacts for multiple applications, such as PoC, Presence and Instant Messaging.

 

Likewise, the new version of the Nokia Presence Solution that Nokia is unveiling brings new functionality, such as greater interoperability and support for OMA-compliant PoC and the SIP/SIMPLE protocol.  The Nokia Presence Solution is a “horizontal enabler” for all IMS-based applications, making PoC and many other SIP-based services easier and more intuitive to use.  Support for PoC means that before making a PoC call, users can check whether the person they are calling is available and willing to communicate.

 

Nokia will also launch “Mobilizing Wireless Data”, which introduces data service continuity between cellular, wireless and wireline networks.  The heart of this solution is the Nokia Flexi Intelligent Service Node (ISN), enabling operators to manage and add value to the data traffic they transport.  For instance, it allows end-users to easily access and enjoy the same data services independent of the access method used.

 

Nokia is a leader in Fixed-Mobile Convergence (FMC) with trials ongoing with 10 operators, including Telecom Italia, France Telecom, TeliaSonera, Elisa, Saunalahti, and Telemar Oi.  The Nokia Unified Core Network, a key enabler of FMC, is being delivered and deployed in networks worldwide.  The Nokia IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) has been bought or is being trialed by over 30 operators, including TIM, Wataniya, Saunalahti, and Eurotel, and is in commercial use in TMN’s 3G network in Portugal.

 

Nokia is Number One in the 3GPP Release 4 mobile softswitch market.  There are over 70 customers for the Nokia MSC Server, over 20 of which are already in live commercial use.  Nokia is also leading the market in push to talk over cellular (PoC), with commercial contracts for 43 service offerings, as well as commercial PoC service in 19 networks and trials with well over 30 trials ongoing.  Since its launch at 3GSM this year, Nokia

already has 9 references for its Flexi ISN.  Deployments of Nokia’s IP traffic analysis solution for online charging are also growing rapidly with over 40 deployments to date.

A new way to build 3G – Nokia launches new WCDMA base station

 

Site costs dramatically cut with the modular Nokia Flexi WCDMA Base Station

 

Espoo, Finland - In anticipation of the Nokia Mobility Conference 2005, Nokia today launched the Nokia Flexi WCDMA Base Station. Based on a completely new platform, the high capacity Nokia Flexi WCDMA Base Station is an innovation enabling operators to make more efficient use of their base station sites than ever before, leading to site cost savings of up to 70 percent through reduced site construction work, quick base station installation and decreased power consumption.

 

The small and modular Nokia Flexi WCDMA Base Station makes site selection more flexible than before. Not only can it be installed both indoors and outdoors, but the Nokia Flexi WCDMA Base Station also supports a distributed base station architecture.

 

Nokia Flexi WCDMA Base Station allows for an easy technology evolution to multiradio networks, as its modules can also be fitted inside existing Nokia UltraSite EDGE Base Station cabinets. Currently, according to the Global mobile Suppliers Association (GSA), 55 operators are deploying both WCDMA and EDGE. Nokia supplies either or both technologies to over half of the commercially launched WCDMA/EDGE networks.

 

The Nokia Flexi WCDMA Base Station is also an investment for the future. It supports WCDMA and High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) technologies, and its modular architecture, compatible with Open Base Station Architecture Initiative (OBSAI) specifications, will later also allow operators to rapidly deploy new technologies, including WiMAX. Further flexibility comes from the easy capacity upgrades that Nokia Flexi WCDMA Base Station allows as traffic increases. The Nokia Flexi WCDMA Base Station will be available in the latter half of 2006.

 

“We believe that this open, modular base station offers all our customers a new and easier way to build 3G networks, now and in the future,” said Robin Lindahl, Vice President, Radio Networks, Nokia. “The small size and flexibility of the Nokia Flexi WCDMA Base Station will make a real difference to our customers’ operating and capital expenditure since existing and new sites can be used in a very efficient way. In addition, this new platform will make it easy for operators to deploy new radio technologies.”

Nokia bolsters its Services portfolio with 3 new solutions

 

Trio of tools for operators underlines Nokia’s commitment to its growing Services business

 

Espoo, Finland - Nokia today unveiled three new solutions as part of its ongoing drive to help operators enhance their service offerings, win and retain customers, and check costs in ever-toughening markets.

 

Nokia’s Service Level Management, Integrated Provisioning and Unified Device Management solution launches come ahead of the November 2-3 Nokia Mobility Conference in Barcelona, where top management from across the company will give Nokia’s view on convergence and how consumers and operators can tap into the growing trend.

 

“Operators increasingly need to differentiate their service offerings to keep customer satisfaction high and subscriber turnover low. These solutions allow them to do just that,” says Bosco Novak, Senior Vice President for Services, Networks, Nokia. He adds: “Convergence will mean greater technological challenges for operators, and here also our new solutions will make life easier for our customers.”

 

The Nokia Service Level Management Solution allows operators to set and monitor service levels with key customers to ensure that the agreed service quality will be met or exceeded. The solution gives operators visibility to their most important clients so that service quality remains high, increasing customer satisfaction and loyalty. Churn can be reduced and revenues increased.

 

The Nokia Integrated Provisioning Solution enables holistic service, subscription and device management, and also provides tools and processes ranging from product planning to fulfillment and customer service deployment. The solution enables cost-effective integration and co-operation in an increasingly complex IT environment for operators.

 

The Nokia Unified Device Management Solution lets operators serve their clients easily and cost-effectively, enabling over-the-air SIM card management as well as providing the tools to manage PDAs and smartphones for corporate clients. It allows operators to quickly deploy the latest services to their customers, a crucial advantage in today’s cutthroat business environment.

 

Nokia provides a full range of support and services to help operators differentiate and innovate their mobile offerings, with over 15 years of experience in working with customers to get the most out of their networks.

 

Nokia established its Services business unit in Networks at the start of 2005, and has since taken big strides that underline its commitment to this growing business. In August alone it announced a $125 million managed services and GSM/EDGE network expansion deal with India’s Bharti Tele-Ventures, and said it would establish a Global Networks Operation Center in India by the end of the year.

 

“Services is a growth area for the Networks business group, representing already today more than 30% of its revenues (including support software), and we expect to see important developments especially in the areas of Managed Services, Systems Integration and Service Management,” Bosco Novak adds.

Oh L’Amour! Cultural contrasts, craft and ethnic influences inspire Nokia’s latest fashion collection

 

Natural materials, fusion of colors and patterns define the L’Amour Collection

 

Hong Kong, China / Florence, Italy / New York, NY, USA - Continuing to push the boundaries of mobile phone design, Nokia has introduced a collection of three trend-inspired mobile phones, the Nokia 7360, Nokia 7370 and Nokia 7380. Each model in the L’Amour Collection offers a beautiful mix of contrasts  -  infusing cultural and ethnic influences with luxurious touches of the unexpected.  Hints of vintage and craftsmanship, are fused with natural materials, colors and patterns, all carefully crafted and layered with a passion for detail.

 

“For many consumers, the mobile phone has truly become an extension of their personal style – it is a fashion statement as well as an advanced communications device,” says Alastair Curtis, Vice President of Design at Nokia’s Mobile Phones division. “Every detail of these products, from the nature-inspired graphics to the velvet-lined pouches, has been carefully considered with the style-conscious individual in mind.  We are very confident that consumers who appreciate design and attention to detail will fall in love with the L’Amour Collection.”

 

In the design and development of the L’Amour Collection, Nokia’s Design team looked to materials such as amber, ceramic, turquoise, silk and enamel for inspiration. Craft techniques, such as enamelling and etching, added a creative spark to the graphics, materials, finishes and colors selected for each model in the collection.

Nokia WiMAX plans move forward with successful data call

 

Important step taken for mobile WiMAX development work

 

Espoo, Finland - Nokia announced today that its Networks business group has completed a data call as part of its WiMAX (802.16e) development program.

 

The error free call was made between computing and baseband modules at Nokia’s research and development facility in Germany according to Nokia’s WiMAX development timetable, and was conducted on a high-speed pre-product test platform. Nokia will be expanding to WiMAX trials during 2006.

 

“This is an important step in our WiMAX development work, and we are very encouraged by the results,” said Markku Hollström, General Manager, Broadband Wireless business program, Networks, Nokia.

 

The WiMAX e-version will offer nomadic and portable mobility, providing fast data connections for consumers and business users. Nokia sees the WiMAX e-version as a complement to 3GPP technology, or deployed as a stand-alone data network.

 

Nokia is a member of the WiMAX forum, an industry-led non-profit corporation formed to promote and certify the compatibility and interoperability of broadband wireless products. WiMAX, which stands for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is a standards-based wireless technology that provides high-throughput broadband connections over long distances. WiMAX can be used for a number of applications, including “last mile” broadband connections, hotspots and high-speed enterprise connectivity for business. The WiMAX IEEE 802.16e version is expected to be standardized later this year.

‘Pirates Ahoy!’ as High Seize arrives in stores

 

Espoo, Finland - Nokia today announced that it has shipped High Seize, the latest game from Red Lynx - creators of the highly successful Pathway to Glory franchise.

 

Combining beautiful in-game artwork and stunning sun-kissed graphics with simple but engrossing game play, High Seize puts you at the helm as you cruise the Caribbean in a race to save your father from the grasp of a ruthless pirate captain.

 

With classic strategy game play, gamers sail from island to island to do turn-based battle with pirates on land and sea. Thanks to the huge variety of units, resources and terrains they can expect an almost endless combination of offensive and defensive strategies.

 

Take on up to three friends using Hot Seat or Bluetooth connectivity, or choose to play against others from anywhere in the world via the N-Gage Arena. Using the built-in messaging system you can trade insults with the lily-livered seadogs as you strive to defeat all those that appear on your horizon.

 

“What makes this game so great is that while you can really immerse yourself in it, it’s still accessible enough for anyone to enjoy.” says Gregg Sauter, Director, Games Publishing, Nokia. He continued, saying “What we’re most excited about is the way that this title ushers in the concept of ‘bus stop’ gaming: A title you can play for as little or as long as you like to get your gaming fix, and then put things on hold until next time.”

New Nokia Family of Devices Targeted at the Business World

 

Nokia E60, Nokia E61 and Nokia E70 combine the power of 3G and WLAN with advanced voice services and mobile email applications in a variety of designs for every employee

 

London, UK/ New York, NY, USA - Nokia announced today the addition of three new models to its portfolio of business-optimized devices. The Nokia E60, Nokia E61 and Nokia E70 - the first of the new Nokia Eseries - are distinctively different in design and allow businesses of all sizes to mobilize their workforce. Nokia Eseries models combine attractive and easy-to-use designs that appeal to individual business users with new underlying technologies that allow IT departments to effectively manage security settings, corporate applications and data. Each of the devices is designed to accommodate must-have mobile applications needed in today’s business world like mobile email and advanced voice calling functions. The Nokia E60, Nokia E61 and the Nokia E70 will be available in the first quarter of 2006 worldwide.

 

The Nokia E60, Nokia E61 and Nokia E70 support today’s most popular and newly announced corporate mobile email solutions like BlackBerry Connect, GoodLink from Good Technology, Inc., Nokia Business Center, Seven Mobile Mail, Seven Always-On Mail and Visto Mobile.

Companies deploying an Avaya or Cisco IP PBX can connect the new Nokia devices directly to their corporate phone networks, enabling functions employees have come to expect from a corporate network like four-digit dialing and assisted call answering.

 

“When we carefully considered the requirements of our customers when developing these devices, two clear new trends emerged: the need for IT departments’ to have a secure and manageable platform, and the need for devices to support a variety of employee preferences and different working styles,” said Niklas Savander, senior vice president of Nokia’s business device unit. “We understand what mobility means for business. These devices embody our extensive knowledge of user-focused functional design, security and cutting-edge wireless technologies. Our goal is to make it easy for our customers to choose Nokia devices for all their business mobility needs.”

The Nokia E60 provides the uncompromised look, comfort and usability of a classically designed mobile phone. Supporting an array of advanced call features from integrated speakerphone and conference calling to voice-aided applications like Push to talk, and IP-based telephony, the Nokia E60 is the best mobile device for active voice communications - in and out of the office. The Nokia E60 offers fast and flexible data connections with WCDMA enabling wide area connections and WLAN offers a cost effective option for local access. Although optimized for one-handed use, its large color screen makes email and calendar entries easy. The Nokia E60 operates in GSM900/1800/1900 and WCDMA2100 networks.

 

The Nokia E61: Built for mobile email

 

The Nokia E61 is designed in the familiar style of today’s most popular mobile email devices. Yet it is incredibly slim and packed with powerful new functionality.  A cinch to use with either hand, the device has a four-way joystick and full keyboard combined with a wide 16 million color screen making mobile email easier than ever before. Supporting multiple mobile email clients like BlackBerry Connect, GoodLink, Nokia Business Center, Seven Mobile Mail, Seven Always-On Mail, and Visto Mobile, the Nokia E61 provides seamless and encrypted mobile connectivity.  Full attachment handling (documents, spreadsheets, presentations, PDF viewer and ZIP manager) and an editing function (document, spreadsheet and presentation) are included.  The Nokia E61 also includes the same advanced business call features and IP-based telephony functions as the Nokia E60 and Nokia E70.  The Nokia E61 can send and receive emails, even when on a phone call.  The Nokia E61 operates in GSM850/900/1800/1900 and WCDMA2100 networks.

 

The Nokia E70: The all-in-one messaging device

 

At first glance, the Nokia E70 looks like a modern smartphone. Open it up and find a full messaging keyboard for fast and easy thumb typing, a generous color screen for viewing emails, plus attachments (document, spreadsheet, presentation, PDF viewer and ZIP manager) and an editing function (document, spreadsheet, presentation) for staying up-to-date with the inbox.  Like the Nokia E60 and Nokia E61, the Nokia E70 supports a common set of applications like advanced voice and email. Nokia will offer two versions of the Nokia E70 - one optimized for mobile networks in Europe and Asia (GSM900/1800/1900/WCDMA 2100) and one optimized for mobile networks in the Americas (GSM850/1800/1900), yet both versions are able to roam in GSM networks across regions.

 

Nokia also offers a comprehensive service portfolio for its business devices and solutions ranging from technical support to implementation, professional services and technical training.  Nokia’s services are available to better serve customers and enable successful end-to-end mobility solutions.

Nokia to support GSM technology on 450 MHz frequency band for mobile phones

 

Espoo, Finland - Nokia today underlined its interest in GSM technology on the 450 MHz frequency band. Nokia believes that a GSM450 frequency is a viable solution in providing affordable handsets and mobile voice-centered services to new growth areas with a low teledensity. For regions licensing a 450 MHz frequency band, GSM technology can provide a cost conscious alternative and thus enable mobile communications for a broad consumer base in very price sensitive markets.

 

“Nokia believes that reducing the total cost of ownership for both affordable handsets and mobile voice services are the key when it comes to reaching the next billion consumers in new growth markets,” says Søren Petersen, Senior Vice President, Nokia Mobile Phones. “The GSM450 frequency can provide a way of giving consumers and operators a choice in taking full advantage of the affordability of GSM technology.”

 

Nokia previously stated it expects the mobile subscriber base to reach three billion by 2010. This growth will be significantly fueled by markets which currently have a low mobile penetration rate.  With the right combination of mobile phones, network solutions, services and a regulated environment, Nokia envisions a mobile landscape where operators can profitably offer mobile services to a broader range of consumers for as little as USD 5 per month.

 

Nokia GSM handsets, such as the recently introduced Nokia 2652 and the Nokia 1600 (for GSM 900/1800/1900), are very popular in entry markets. Potentially Nokia products could bring the benefits of GSM technology to markets that are planning to license the 450MHz frequency band,

Nokia Introduces Carbide.c++, New Family of Development Tools for Symbian OS

 

Carbide.c++ delivers developer productivity across entire Symbian ecosystem, leverages open-source Eclipse framework to encourage innovation and improve efficiency

 

London, UK/Espoo, Finland - Nokia (NYSE: NOK), the global leader in mobility, today launched the next generation of Symbian OS™ development tools, Carbide.c++ , in an initiative designed to rapidly expand the mobile development community working with Symbian OS (operating system), the global industry-leading operating system for smartphone devices.

 

The new Carbide.c++ unifies Nokia’s developer tools offering, providing a tiered family of products which offer flexibility to developers at all levels and in all segments of the Symbian ecosystem – from professionals needing powerful debugging support for hardware creation to the novice seeking entry-level access to Symbian application development.

 

Carbide.c++, developed in cooperation with Symbian and announced today at The Smartphone Show, is built on Eclipse, the rapidly evolving open-source integrated development environment framework designed to encourage software tool innovation. The new family of Carbide .c++ developer tools launched here today includes:

 

Carbide.c++ Professional Edition, designed for professional Symbian OS developers who focus on Symbian device development and high performance applications and require early access to next-generation Symbian OS support and technical specifications;

 

Carbide.c++ Developer Edition, offering a new graphical Rapid Application Development (RAD) tool to ease C++ development for both Series 60 and UIQ mobile platforms, meeting the requirements of advanced-level application developers by providing improved productivity tools for application development and debug on Symbian OS devices; and,

 

Carbide.c++ Express, an entry-level tool available for download at no cost and designed to invite all programmers to explore Symbian OS, providing a complete set of application development tools needed to target the Series 60 and UIQ SDKs and to build and deploy applications to devices.

 

“Nokia’s new family of Carbide.c++ developer tools offers developers an integrated tool chain for developers of smartphone hardware and advanced mobile applications based on Symbian OS,” said Heikki Koivu, Director, Development Tools, Nokia. “With the Carbide tools launch, Nokia underscores its commitment to bring premium development products to the rapidly growing universe of developers working across the entire Symbian ecosystem.”

 

Symbian OS is the industry leading standard for open smartphone operating systems. Symbian OS is licensed to all leading handset manufactures including Arima, BenQ, Fujitsu, Panasonic, Lenovo, LG Electronics, Mitsubishi, Motorola, Nokia, Samsung, Sharp, Siemens and Sony Ericsson. During the first half of 2005, more than 14.5 million devices were sold to more than 200 network operators worldwide. The worldwide installed base of Symbian OS mobile phones exceeds 39 million devices.

 

57



 

The new Carbide brand of developer tools provides a single identity for all Nokia’s developer tool offerings. Carbide.c++ is the natural evolution of Nokia’s CodeWarrior for Symbian OS suite of development tools, providing a modern IDE with excellent usability mated to powerful Symbian OS debugging created by Nokia’s Symbian OS development tools team.

 

All CodeWarrior for Symbian OS customers have a clear and consistent migration to Carbide. Advanced developers working with CodeWarrior Personal Edition will migrate to Carbide.c++ Developer Edition. CodeWarrior Professional and OEM Edition developers will easily migrate to Carbide.c++ Professional. Developers working with CodeWarrior OEM Edition’s JTAG debugging will be offered an optional OEM plug-in to the Carbide.c++ Professional Edition, maximizing the flexibility for customers to acquire and configure Carbide tools according to their needs.

 

Carbide.c++ Express is designed to attract new developers to the Symbian OS community via the popular Eclipse IDE bundled with no-cost C++ Symbian OS development tools, lowering many barriers for large numbers of novice developers, students, academics, and evaluators to begin developing on Symbian OS.

 

Nokia’s introduction of Carbide tools provides additional value to its existing tools customers by combining Nokia’s leadership in mobile products and development resources with a new ability to leverage the large developer community that has rapidly congregated around the Eclipse IDE. Nokia has joined the Eclipse foundation as a strategic developer with a commitment that mobile development becomes a core part of the Eclipse promise to software developers.

 

The entry-level Carbide.c++ Express tool will be available for free download in the first quarter of 2006 at Forum Nokia, UIQ, Symbian and Symbian licensee websites. Carbide.c++ Developer Edition will be available in the second quarter of 2006 from Forum Nokia’s webstore for 299€. Schedules for Carbide.c++ Professional Edition and other Carbide products will be announced separately with shipments expected to commence through the second half of 2006.

 

Nokia’s Carbide.c++ Express will be showcased Oct. 11-12 at the Symbian Developer Community booth (#126) on the exhibition floor at The Smartphone Show at London’s ExCeL Centre. Further information on the Carbide family of developer tools can be found online at www.forum.nokia.com/carbide.

Nokia and Symantec to collaborate in enhancing security for smartphones

 

Cupertino, CA, USA / Espoo, Finland – Nokia and Symantec Corporation (Nasdaq: SYMC) today announced that the two companies have signed an agreement that enables Nokia to provide its Series 60 based smartphones with Symantec Mobile Security. Through this agreement, Nokia will be able to preload their Series 60 and Symbian OS based mobile devices with Symantec’s mobile security solutions, offering increased protection for consumer and business users against mobile malware threats.

 

“As the leading mobile device manufacturer, Nokia is determined to be active in the development of security controls and preventive measures against malware. The collaboration with Symantec, the leading security solution provider, is another step in our aim to bring the most advanced security features into Series 60 based devices,” says Matti Vänskä, Director, Nokia Technology Platforms.

 

As smartphone purchasing and usage become more prolific Nokia and Symantec want to offer security solutions that will help protect personal information, such as contact databases, stored on smartphones in addition to connected networks.

 

“Mobile devices are changing the way consumers and businesses live and work,” said Sarah Hicks, Vice President of mobile and wireless solutions, Symantec Corp.  “As more and more data, including financial and personal details, are being stored on mobile devices, they are increasingly at risk to malware threats. This agreement with Symantec allows Nokia to provide key security features to the Series 60 Platform and Series 60 based smartphones.”

 

Symantec has been working with Nokia for more than two years to develop mobile security technology and systems for mobile devices. The new agreement strengthens the existing relationship by enabling Nokia to provide increased protection for the smartphones running the Series 60 Platform. The agreement also will enable the other Series 60 licensees to evaluate and test Symantec’s mobile security solutions for their Series 60 based smartphones.

 

About Symantec Mobile Security

 

Symantec Mobile Security for Symbian OS is an integrated security client that protects smartphones from wireless threats. As mobile phones acquire more computer-like capabilities, they also become more vulnerable to viruses and hackers. Symantec Mobile Security for Symbian OS protects against those risks. The software starts safeguarding a phone as soon as it is installed, automatically turning on virus protection and closing vulnerable ports. Symantec virus protection defends against viruses, worms, and Trojan horses, automatically removing any it finds.

 

The AutoProtect feature runs continuously in the background, watching for malicious code in SMS, EMS, MMS, HTTP, and email files. Users can also manually scan applications and file archives.  Additionally, a built-in firewall blocks suspicious incoming and outgoing connection attempts on the phone’s LAN/WAN connection. Symantec LiveUpdate Wireless technology makes it easy to stay protected against new threats by downloading software and protection updates over the wireless network.

Nokia to trial Fixed Mobile Convergence solutions with Telemar Oi in Brazil

 

Espoo, Finland - Nokia has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Brazilian telecommunications giant Telemar Oi to begin trials of Nokia’s Fixed Mobile Convergence solutions.  The Nokia Fixed Mobile Convergence solutions can leverage Telemar’s current fixed network to create a converged packet based domain for fixed and mobile services.  Telemar operates the largest fixed network in South America, with around 15 million subscribers, as well as the Oi branded mobile network, which currently caters to around 8 million subscribers.

 

The trial employs a comprehensive Nokia end-to-end solution for unified core and converged access networks, as well as Nokia terminals providing multimedia and VoIP services for both mobile and fixed customers.  The Nokia unified core includes the Nokia IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS), for voice calls and multimedia services, the Nokia VoIP Server, and the Nokia MSC Server System (MSS).  The agreement also includes testing of the Nokia Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) solution for extending the potential of fixed broadband networks.

 

“At Telemar Oi, we have been a pioneer in GSM in Brazil and have already successfully launched integrated service packages for our fixed and mobile residential customers,” says Alberto Blanco, marketing director of Telemar Group.  “This convergence trial is a natural extension of that and is an important part in our vision for the future in driving growth in our businesses.”

Nokia mobilizes fixed operators with convergence solutions at Broadband World Forum 2005

 

Introducing the Nokia VoIP Server to provide IP voice service in fixed and mobile networks.

 

Espoo, Finland - At Broadband World Forum 2005 in Madrid, Nokia reinforces its leadership in the convergence of fixed and mobile networks with a comprehensive portfolio of solutions for operators and service providers, including the Nokia VoIP Server for IP-based voice service.

 

The Fixed-Mobile Convergence (FMC) solution that Nokia is showcasing in Madrid offers fixed, mobile and hybrid operators a smooth evolution from today’s networks to the next-generation networks of tomorrow.  The end-to-end Nokia FMC solution enables wireline operators to offer new services and connectivity within the fixed network domain.  It gives subscribers the means to enjoy the same service experience independent of access, such as fixed networks, DSL, cellular or WLAN and UMA.

 

As a further enhancement to this strong offering, the Nokia VoIP Server widens the Nokia Unified Core Network portfolio of solutions with a carrier-grade, standards-based solution for providing voice over IP services in converged networks.  The Nokia VoIP Server is currently being trialled by a number of key operators and will be available for volume deployments in the first half 2006.

 

“Service providers in this changing business environment are looking for ways to increase revenue and efficiency, reduce customer churn and create a strong market position,” says Jussi Ilmarinen, Director, Convergence Marketing & Sales, Networks, Nokia.  “The ubiquitous uptake of broadband services is opening new opportunities for the use of VoIP.  Fixed operators can leverage their competitive advantage by rolling out VoIP on top of broadband, while adding mobility to differentiate their offering.  They can also modernize their networks with a solution that provides a smooth evolution path to multimedia services.”

 

“At the same time, mobile operators can implement VoIP and thereby transform their existing network and voice services into a unified offering across mobile and broadband domains,” he adds “Nokia’s Fixed-Mobile Convergence solution, including the Nokia VoIP Server, is an ideal way for operators to make the most of these emerging opportunities.”

 

The Nokia VoIP Server is compliant with the standardization work done by 3GPP and ETSI TISPAN. This enables convergence of legacy voice and SIP-driven VoIP, independent of access.  With the Nokia VoIP Server, fixed and mobile operators can offer VoIP to their customers with supplementary services such as Caller ID and SMS text messaging.

 

The Nokia VoIP Server can be implemented as a stand-alone solution in fixed networks as a first step toward convergence.  Alternatively, it can also be deployed as an application server within the IMS framework.   The Nokia VoIP Server fully complements the Nokia IMS solution, which enables SIP-based multimedia services, such as video sharing, in addition to voice services and a unified communications experience using both wireless and wireline packet access networks.

Notes to the editor:

 

With the multiaccess solutions, unified core network, OSS, multimedia services, service and network integration, as well as world-class devices, Nokia is well positioned to make the promise of convergence a business reality in this industry.

 

Fixed Mobile Convergence brings consumers improved personalized services and mobility across wireline and wireless networks, as well as possibilities for enhanced coverage and quality.  In addition, cost-saving and revenue-generating opportunities can be realised.  Nokia is involved in a number of trials of convergence solutions with leading operators.  Several other trials are ongoing, including multiaccess trials with Nokia equipment compliant with Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) standards.

 

IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) are the key enablers of service convergence between different access technologies.  The Nokia end-to-end IMS solution enables fixed and mobile operators to deploy IP-based person-to-person multimedia services in 2G and 3G networks.

 

It brings a major new capability to existing networks by allowing terminals to establish IP sessions between each other, which in turn enables a wide range of multimedia communication services and interactive applications, such as video sharing, in addition to voice services.  SIP technology makes IP-based person-to-person services possible.

 

The MSC Server Solution optimizes networks by enabling an operator to concentrate call control to centralized premises, while distributing switching functions to locations close to traffic hot spots — reducing the cost of building and operating mobile networks.

 

The Nokia UMA solutions allows operators to complement GSM coverage by offering GSM services via WiFi hot-spots as well as in home and office WLAN environments. In such hot spots, users with WLAN-capable GSM phones, can enjoy normal GSM voice, data and supplementary services.
