Nokia answers needs of entry market with innovative sharing features

 

Two new phones offer call-time tracking, multi-phonebooks and more

 

Espoo, Finland - In emerging markets around the world, mobile phones are often shared among families and even entire villages. To meet the needs of these customers, many of whom are first-time buyers, Nokia today introduced two new mobile phones designed to meet the unique needs of a shared mobile device, the Nokia 1200 and Nokia 1208 phones. Both of these phones introduce the industry’s first call-time tracking application and multi-phonebooks to make phone sharing simpler and more efficient.

 

In order to help manage airtime costs, the call-time tracking feature allows consumers and village phone entrepreneurs to pre-set a time or cost limit on individual calls, automatically ending the call after the limit has been reached.

 

The easy-to-use multi-phonebook lets customers set up personal phonebooks unique to that user and save specific contacts to that user’s phonebook. The Nokia 1200 and Nokia 1208 each come with 5 available phonebooks, so it is possible for an entire family to share a phone, and for each of the family members to manage their own phonebook.

 

“The sharing of a mobile phone allows many consumers in entry markets to experience the benefits of mobility firsthand - an experience that might otherwise not be possible,” says Soren Petersen, Senior Vice President, Mobile Phones, Nokia.  “With the industry-first features found in the Nokia 1200 and 1208, Nokia continues to address the needs and aspirations of people in emerging markets by making its mobile phones accessible to more consumers and enabling positive community development.”

 

The Nokia 1200 and Nokia 1208 also come equipped with additional features tailored to entry markets such as one-touch flashlights, localized languages, a teaching mode that allows non-experienced users to quickly learn how to master the phone, while a seamless keypad also protects the phone from dust, another reality of rural mobile phone use.  The Nokia 1200 phone is offered with a monochrome screen, while the Nokia 1208 features a colour VGA screen.

 

The Nokia 1200 will be available in the second quarter of 2007 with an estimated retail price of 35 EUR before subsidies or taxes. The Nokia 1208 will be available in the third quarter of 2007 with estimated retail price of 40 EUR before subsidies or taxes.

Leading telecommunications vendors and operators join forces to foster the realisation of next generation mobile broadband networks based on 3GPP LTE/SAE standards

 

Initiative aims to trial mobile data rates in excess of 100 Mbps

 

Paris/France, Stockholm/Sweden, Espoo/Finland, Toronto/Canada, Bonn/Germany, Munich/Germany, Newbury/England: A group of world leading telecom technology manufacturers and network operators comprised of Alcatel-Lucent, Ericsson, France Telecom/Orange, Nokia, Nokia Siemens Networks, Nortel, T-Mobile, and Vodafone have announced a joint initiative aimed at driving forward the realisation of the next-generation of high performance mobile broadband networks based on 3GPP Release 8 “Long Term Evolution / System Architecture Evolution” (LTE/SAE) specifications.

 

The LTE/SAE Trial Initiative heralds a new chapter for the mobile industry with network systems targeted to support mobile broadband peak data rates exceeding 100 Mbps. In line with 3GPP requirements, this next-generation technology aims to provide a mobile broadband service that outperforms both 3GPP Release 6 HSPA, as well as current fixed line DSL data rates while maintaining and extending the highly successful mobility and coverage benefits of 3GPP networks such as GSM. 3GPP LTE/SAE networks are expected to enable lower operating costs for operators as well as higher data-rate, lower latency end-user services, and an improved end-user wireless mobility experience.

 

To meet these objectives, LTE radio systems are designed to provide both greater levels of radio spectrum efficiency through use of new radio transmission schemes and advanced multi-antenna technologies, and a more flexible utilisation of radio spectrum through support of carrier bandwidths ranging from 1.25 MHz to 20 MHz (subject to 3GPP ratification).

 

The companies participating in this initiative will collaborate on demonstrating the potential of 3GPP LTE/SAE mobile broadband technologies through a series of joint tests including radio transmission performance tests, early interoperability tests, field tests and full customer trials.  Joint activities will commence in May 2007, and are expected to run for a period of 18-24 months.

 

The joint test results will be used by the participating members in ongoing technology developments and 3GPP LTE standardisation work, and will also help define and validate operator network launch plans. This initiative will also help validate the emerging LTE ecosystem including devices and applications, with a view to enabling commercial deployments in the 2009/2010 timeframe.

 

This LTE trial initiative will work closely with NGMN* Ltd. to take into account the NGMN performance requirements.

Forum Nokia introduces Series 40 platform 5th Edition for mobile application developers

 

New API support and advanced Java(TM) technologies let developers quickly provide latest applications and services to mass-market mobile consumers and business users

 

JavaOne, San Francisco, CA, US - Nokia today announced the new edition of its Series 40 platform for mobile application development, opening up new opportunities for developers and operators to target the broader consumer marketplace with the latest in mobile services and applications.

 

The new Series 40 5th Edition is a full hardware, software and Application Programming Interface architecture, incorporating Java(TM) Platform Micro Edition (Java ME) technology with support for the latest version of the mobile information device profile (MIDP 2.1), and providing an enhanced UI that enables developers to build richer multimedia applications and services for mass market Nokia mobile devices.

 

The latest evolution of the highest-volume mobile-development platform available, Series 40 5th Edition implements the advanced JSR-248 Mobile Service Architecture specification, completed in 2006 and designed by an industry task force led by Nokia and Vodafone to reduce fragmentation and provide a consistent set of Java technologies for high-volume mobile handsets. JSR-248 is also a key component of the S60 platform and Nokia’s commitment to JSR-248 implementation in both platforms ensures a high level of application portability between Series 40 and S60 devices.

 

“Nokia is very pleased to underscore its commitment to Java technologies with the delivery of these advanced enhancements to Series 40 5th Edition, enabling developers and operators to provide a new generation of advanced applications and services to the mass-market of mobile phone users,” said  Lee Epting, vice president, Forum Nokia, Nokia’s global developer support program. “This new platform for high-volume Nokia devices will leverage the latest Java-based functionality to provide a richer and more productive mobile experience to consumers and business users around the globe.”

 

Developers can deliver a richer 3D sound experience for games and multimedia applications using Advanced Multimedia Supplements (JSR 234). Other Java Specification Request (JSR) implementations supporting a range of Java APIs in the new Series 40 platform include:

 

Java APIs for Bluetooth v1.1 maintenance release (JSR 82), with the addition of support for the Object Exchange (OBEX) protocol;

A Mobile Media API (JSR 135), provides simple, easy access and control of basic audio and multimedia resources;

J2ME(TM) Web Services Specification (JSR-172), implementing the Remote Procedural Call (RPC) package that gives public and private access to Web services via Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP);

Security and Trust Services API for J2ME (JSR 177), including the SATSA-CRYPTO optional package to enable cryptographic feature offerings; and,

Java MIDP update from 2.0 to 2.1, with the addition of support for media hard-keys when Canvas (screen area in which an application can draw, or can trap user input) is displayed.

 

Nokia’s new Series 40 5th Edition enables users of mass-market mobile devices to experience streaming video, image rendering, mobile 3D graphics and scalable 2D Vector graphics. Series 40 5th Edition also supports the latest version of Adobe’s Flash Lite 2.1, the interoperable platform that enables the accelerated development and delivery of rich graphical mobile content, and includes audio file playback and streaming capabilities that provide audio and music enhancements to both the mobile gaming and multimedia experience.

 

In addition, Series 40 5th Edition also enables Bluetooth and IrDA (Infrared) connectivity and synchronization capabilities and delivers a robust mobile browsing environment through support of a number of mobile browsing standards. The platform’s broad support for SMS text messaging and multi-media messaging (MMS) includes true interoperability for a variety of MMS content formats and classes.

 

The Series 40 5th Edition forms an important element of Nokia’s platform strategy for supporting mobile application development across all consumer segments and in all markets. By offering technology platforms that remain consistent across multiple handsets, Nokia’s developer platform approach maximizes developers’ volume opportunities and minimizes the need to port applications and services to individual handsets. Developers can build core functionality on top of the platform technologies and then optimize their applications for user interfaces and technology extensions on specific target devices.

 

New developer tools, including Series 40 5th Edition SDKs with device emulator, Java class libraries, APIs (including the Nokia UI API) and documentation, will be made available in June 2007 at www.forum.nokia.com/tools  by Nokia’s global developer support program, Forum Nokia.

Business mobility: the new competitive mandate, according to global survey

 

Mobility solutions lead to revenue gains rather than simply reducing operating costs; improved workforce agility, collaboration, and ability to attract and retain the best talent cited among key benefits

 

NEW YORK, NY - Competition is pushing businesses towards greater mobility, and companies plan to adopt mobile applications for core business activities - these were two key findings in a recent global survey on business mobility conducted by Nokia and the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) and in cooperation with the CIO Forum. As business mobility continues making headway into organizations and more advanced applications and processes are mobilized, the reasons behind companies’ mobility adoption can vary from hard core ROI benefits to softer values such as employee retention.  Companies are increasingly implementing mobility to offer greater collaboration, responsiveness to customers, and better work-life balance to staff, fundamentally changing the ways people are working.

 

Nokia and EIU polled more than 500 global executives across a range of industries to find out how their organizations were using business mobility. In the survey, three quarters of the respondents pointed to human factors such as attracting the best talent - including new entrants to the workforce—improving customer support, and building brand reputations as reasons for deploying business mobility.

 

The survey shows that business mobility has gone mainstream. Well over one-third of executives reported that at least 20% of their employees can be considered ‘mobile workers’, defined as those who spend at least one day a week away from the office. Far from being a requirement for just a few specialized technology firms, business mobility is now seen as broadly applicable to companies in many industrial sectors.

 

Survey respondents cited competitive benefits of business mobility solutions, including:

 

 Important competitive advantages such as quicker response time to customers (36%);

 Improved collaboration within the enterprise (27%);

 And the ability to work with multiple partners/suppliers (12%).

 

The survey also showed that activities occurring in the field are increasingly core to the success of a business and companies can no longer rely on information merely being captured in the field. Respondents also planned to increase their use of mobility solutions over the next two years, with companies more likely to make greater use of:

 

 Remote network access (41%);

 Customer relationship management (34%);

 Collaborative applications such as mobile groupware (21%);

 And sales force automation (17%).

 

“This research clearly demonstrates that business mobility has arrived, and is viewed as a fundamental part of being competitive regardless of the industry,” said Olivier Cognet, VP, strategy and business development, Enterprise Solutions, Nokia. “We have resolved a great deal of earlier mobility industry ‘teething problems’ related to infrastructure, and the need for business-optimized devices and complete solutions.  Now is the time to fully reap the far-reaching benefits that business mobility has to offer.”

 

Along with advantages, respondents also said business mobility brings challenges such as managing a mobile workforce (19%) and maintaining a cohesive culture across a dispersed workforce (18%). The ability to measure the impact of business mobility on a company’s competitiveness was also cited (12%).

 

“By enabling decision-making ‘on-the-move’, business mobility solutions let organizations respond more quickly to customer needs, develop ideas for innovative products and services, and attract new talent,” said Nigel Holloway, Research Director in the Americas at the Economist Intelligence Unit. “Although it presents new managerial challenges, the long term trend toward greater business mobility is clear.”

 

As a means of enabling business mobility, Nokia’s integrated business mobility solutions portfolio makes it easier for companies to take a more strategic approach to business mobility, overcome the challenges, and help quantify the total return on investment (ROI).  The portfolio includes Nokia Intellisync Mobility platform; Nokia Eseries business devices; secure connectivity technologies designed to safeguard data on the device and over the network; technical support; and professional services.  Offerings are built on four key cornerstones: being simple to deploy, manage and use; being connected to eliminate the boundaries of both distance and technology; being intelligent enough to make communication affordable and respond to changing company and employee needs; and being trusted to protect sensitive corporate data and systems.

 

The global study was conducted in the first quarter of 2007 as part of the Nokia for Business Executive Forum, an initiative focused on competitiveness through business mobility.  For more information and to download a complimentary copy of the report entitled, “The Quest for competitiveness: Business mobility and the agile organisation,” please visit www.nokiaforbusiness.com/compete

Nokia and Tampere University of Technology to tighten their collaboration

Open innovation key for the new innovation center in Finland

 

Nokia Research Center (NRC) and Tampere University of Technology (TUT) have today announced the creation of a new framework to tighten open and innovative collaboration in their research activities. TUT will become the first and central collaboration partner in the planned Nokia Innovation Center Tampere, Finland, opening in September.

 

The aim of the center is to create a model for research based on open innovation, where information flows freely between collaborators. Past experience indicates that creating common research facilities where researchers from both parties can work together lowers the barrier to collaboration. Genuine collaboration is the central target:

 

“This announcement is about creating impactful results through sharing of information in both directions, not technology transfer. We can discuss together some specific research problem or functional entity without compromising confidentiality of either party. Researchers from both organizations can share the enthusiasm and work together as one group,” commented Professor Jaakko Astola of the Tampere University of Technology, who has been strongly involved in preparing the new framework.

 

When launched, approximately 70 researchers will work together on a weekly basis. Both parties deem it essential that the center’s work has the potential for market impact while also contributing to the state-of-the-art by producing high-quality technical publications. Part of the research will be funded by Tekes, the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology. It is envisaged that other research institutions, as well as compatible commercial companies, in the Tampere area may eventually also participate in the work of the center.

 

Nokia and TUT have a long tradition of research collaboration for which the new the framework is a natural continuation. The announcement is also in line with NRC’s policy of working in close collaboration with respected academic institutions on projects of mutual benefit.  Nokia has in recent months announced research collaborations with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Stanford University in the USA, with the University of Cambridge in the UK and - most recently - with the Helsinki University of Technology in Finland. The announcement today brings a welcome boost to research collaboration between industry and the academia in Finland.

 

Jukka P. Saarinen, who has led the project from Nokia’s side, said: “Nokia is very committed to promoting excellence in technology research in Finland, and Tampere will be the second Finnish university with which Nokia has recently announced a close collaboration. In this way, Nokia Research Center brings together some of the best and brightest minds to focus on some of the most challenging and exciting problems.  By creating a collaborative environment, based around research teams, rather than focusing on short-term problems, we believe we will benefit both our own research work and that of the university.”

 

The research center is expected to focus, initially and among other topics, on research in

content and media ecosystems (future digital media; maintaining and sharing personal content between various devices),

smart UI solutions (camera-end image processing; visual user interfaces for the next generation experience)

printed electronics (miniaturization and electronics integration)

modular system architectures (advanced computer architectures and devices).

 

About Nokia Research Center

Nokia Research Center (NRC) looks beyond Nokia’s existing businesses and product development to challenge current strategies and to stimulate renewal in the company’s direction.  Working closely with all Nokia business groups and Technology Platforms, NRC’s research explores new frontiers in digital services, physical-digital connections, human interaction, data and content technologies, device architecture, and access and connectivity.  NRC promotes open innovation by working on research projects in collaboration with universities and research institutes around the world.  Nokia Research Center employs around 800 people based in Finland, USA, China, Germany, Japan and the UK.  For more information on Nokia Research Center, see our website: http://research.nokia.com

Nokia becomes the first phone maker to add energy saving alerts to mobiles

 

Espoo, Finland  - Nokia has launched the first mobile phones to include alerts encouraging people to unplug the charger once the battery is full, a move that could save enough electricity to power 85,000 homes a year. Starting with the new Nokia 1200, Nokia 1208 and the Nokia 1650, the alerts will be rolled out across the Nokia product range.

 

Kirsi Sormunen, Vice-President of Environmental Affairs at Nokia said, “Around two-thirds of the energy used by a mobile phone is lost when it is unplugged after charging but the charger itself is left in a live socket. We want to reduce this waste and are working on reducing to an absolute minimum the amount of energy our chargers use. The new alerts also play an important role, encouraging people to help us in this goal by unplugging their chargers.”

 

The alerts are one of a series of environmental initiatives that mobile manufacturers, led by Nokia, agreed to take action on this year. Nokia is the first of these manufacturers to implement the alerts into its products.

 

Nokia has decided to put the alerts into mass markets products first to help maximise the potential energy savings. The Nokia 1200, Nokia 1208, Nokia 1650 are targeting high volumes of sales in fast growing markets like India, China and Latin America.

 

The alerts are the latest in a series of energy saving initiatives from Nokia. Last year the company’s newest range of chargers were awarded an Energy Star by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the US. for their energy efficiency.  The chargers, in use since 2005, far exceed the EPA standards by using 50- 70% less energy than the Energy Star requirement, and also meet the highest European Union standards.

 

The company has set ambitious goals to further reduce the energy consumption of its chargers. By 2010 it aims to have reduced by an additional 50% the amount of electricity a charger consumes whilst still plugged into the mains but not the phone.

Nokia showcases Nokia Intellisync Call Connect for Cisco business voice solution on new dual-mode Nokia E65 and Nokia E61i business devices

 

Fast ramp of Nokia Eseries underscores increasing importance of advanced business devices that deliver both brains and beauty

 

Las Vegas, NV, USA - At the Interop show in Las Vegas, May 22-25, Nokia is demonstrating the combination of Nokia Intellisync Call Connect for Cisco solution running on two of the latest Nokia Eseries devices, Nokia E65 and Nokia E61i.  The full functionality of Nokia Intellisync Call Connect for Cisco can be experienced in the Cisco booth, No.1225, at Interop.

 

With this demonstration, Nokia highlights not only its role in accelerating the adoption of business mobility solutions, but also the importance of the mobile business device in bridging the converging worlds of mobile telephony, corporate telephony, and Information Technology (IT). Nokia E61i, Nokia E65, and all dual-mode Nokia Eseries devices support the full range of Nokia business voice solutions, including Nokia Intellisync Call Connect for Alcatel, Nokia Intellisync Call Connect for Cisco, and Avaya One-X.

 

Nokia Eseries business devices are growing in popularity among business users, who now realize they needn’t compromise on capabilities or style,” said Antti Vasara, senior vice president, Mobile Devices Unit, Enterprise Solutions, Nokia. “Nokia Eseries is the only business-grade device portfolio with a choice of products designed to optimize customers’ ability to collaborate, communicate, and operate in ways that fit their usage preferences.”

 

Nokia Eseries devices run a variety of email, business voice, security, and mobile workforce management applications and other business application software. Vasara continued, “Nearly 40 percent of all business cellular users’ time is spent away from their desks or primary work areas, and nearly 50 percent of this is on-premises.  The importance of sophisticated mobile business devices that offer a superior user experience will only increase as businesses implement mobile email across a wider employee base, and at the same time begin to mobilize additional high ROI mobility solutions such as business voice and other corporate applications.”

 

Dual-mode Nokia Eseries devices with wireless LAN are ideal for implementing a business voice solution integrating mobile devices into fixed corporate telephony systems. With an integrated system, business users need only carry a single device with a single business number for fixed and mobile telephony. They can take advantage of the rich feature set of corporate telephony systems as well as cost savings from features like least-cost routing.

 

For personal use, the integrated SIP VoIP capabilities of dual-mode Nokia Eseries devices allow users also to make and receive Internet calls over the wireless LAN networks in homes, airports, and other hotspots.

 

Combination of beauty and brains without compromise drives Nokia Eseries momentum

The immediate success of Nokia E65 device, a business smartphone slider, in key European and Asian markets, further fueled by fast and efficient availability in other markets, has accelerated the momentum established by the first wave of Nokia Eseries devices - particularly Nokia E61 and Nokia E50.  The recently released Nokia E61i is an ideal device for users demanding a superb email, business voice, and Internet browsing experience.  Equipped with a full keyboard and brilliant screen, Nokia E61i provides easy access to Nokia Intellisync Wireless Email and other business and consumer email applications—such as BlackBerry Connect, Visto Mobile, Seven Always-on Mail, and Mail for Exchange, a Nokia solution that wirelessly synchronizes email with attachments, calendar, and contact information directly from Microsoft Exchange servers.

 

Designed to mobilize the most-used business applications and processes, Nokia Eseries business devices bring advanced voice features with superior voice quality, business email with attachment handling, and manageability with business-class device security to the most demanding business users.  The devices are also easy to deploy within IT infrastructures, further facilitating the adoption of mobility solutions. By also featuring cameras, video capabilities and music players, and giving users access to travel, weather, news, and financial information, second-wave Nokia Eseries devices let customers bridge their work and personal lives.

 

The combination of Nokia Eseries devices and the Nokia Intellisync Mobile Suite 8.0 mobileware platform significantly increases the potential for businesses to achieve new levels of productivity and competitive advantage. Nokia Intellisync Device Management capabilities allow businesses to comprehensively deploy, provision, secure and manage mobile device fleets, allowing over-the-air provisioning, software installation, security policy enforcement, remote device control, and easy lock and data-wipe for devices that are lost or stolen, helping protect company and personal data.

 

With the highly anticipated arrival of Nokia E90 Communicator in select markets later this quarter, followed by global availability in Q3, second-wave Nokia Eseries devices will be available across the business smartphone, messaging, and mobile office categories.

Nokia responds to Qualcomm lawsuit in Wisconsin, files its first patent counter assertions and seeks injunction

 

Espoo, Finland - Nokia today announced it has responded to the Qualcomm lawsuit filed in the Western District of Wisconsin on 2 April, 2007. Nokia remains confident that its products do not infringe either of the two Qualcomm patents-in-suit and asserts that both patents are invalid.

 

Nokia also filed, in the same court, patent counter assertions against Qualcomm for its infringement of six Nokia implementation patents used in Qualcomm GSM/WCDMA and CDMA2000 chipsets. These six patents are not essential for the practice of standards, however they provide substantial benefits when used. In its previous litigation filings Qualcomm has sought injunctions against Nokia. Therefore, Nokia is seeking damages and also an injunction against Qualcomm’s infringing chipsets.

 

Over the past 19 months Qualcomm has filed 11 patent litigation cases against Nokia seeking damages and injunctions,” said Rick Simonson, chief financial officer, Nokia. “Nokia has now filed its first counter action to address Qualcomm’s unauthorized use of Nokia technology. We will continue to defend ourselves and exercise all rights according to our extensive IPR portfolio.”

 

The implementation patents cited in the Nokia counterclaim filing relate primarily to multi-band/multi-mode technologies, that allow seamless and transparent roaming for consumers, and direct conversion technologies that reduce handset and chipset size, cost and power consumption.  These technologies have had a significant role in the success of Nokia devices. Qualcomm, through its unauthorized use of Nokia patents, has copied these innovations and made them available to its chipset customers.

 

Since the early 1990’s Nokia has pioneered the development of a number of technologies that have enabled the creation of smaller and less expensive devices and have improved the user experience for consumers.

 

Nokia has built one of the strongest and broadest IPR portfolios in the wireless industry over the last 15 years through extensive investments in research and development.  Nokia will continue to vigorously defend itself against infringement and unauthorized use of its intellectual property.

Nokia and Tsinghua University announce new research framework

 

Establishment of a joint research facility at the Tsinghua campus in Beijing will drive technology development ‘for Asia and the world’

 

Espoo, Finland - Nokia and Tsinghua University, China, today announced the establishment of a research framework and a facility dedicated to long term joint research programs. This agreement is the first of its kind in Asia for Nokia Research Center (NRC), which has established similar arrangements with several world-class universities in the US, UK and Finland in recent months. Tsinghua’s professors and students will collaborate with NRC researchers on a wide range of topics; some global, others focused specifically on Asia. The research framework establishes the principle and practice that Nokia and Tsinghua will follow in pursuing joint research projects over time and sets the direction and overall topics for research.

 

Commenting on the agreement, Professor Zhisheng Niu, Vice Dean of the School of Information Science and Technology at Tsinghua, said: “In some ways, the future of mobile technology is the future of all technology in China. The country has set itself the goal of developing indigenous innovation and, with four times as many mobile subscribers as internet users, the opportunities within mobile technology are clear. In addition, a world-class communications network is essential to breakthroughs in all areas of science and technology research, rendering mobile technology doubly important. With this announcement, therefore, Nokia is not only promoting research in its own fields, it is actively facilitating and supporting an entire culture of innovation.”

 

The research will initially focus on a handful of areas, including wireless and Internet for Asia, interaction solutions for Asia, Mechanics & Hardware for Multimedia communications devices and mobile internet-based services. The collaboration will be substantial from the outset, with around 20 Nokia researchers working alongside 30 professors and associates and up to 50 students from Tsinghua.

 

Commenting on the agreement, Dr. Bob Iannucci, Nokia Senior Vice President and Head of NRC, said: “This new agreement gives us an opportunity to partner with an acknowledged leader in information technology and engineering. The establishment of NRC’s first joint research facility in Asia further reinforces the commitment to our open innovation model - which has served us and our collaborators well in the US and Europe over the last eighteen months. We anticipate that our collaboration with Tsinghua University will contribute significantly both to the advancement of the state of the art in mobility and to technologies with a specific relevance to Asia.”

 

With over 480 million mobile subscribers in China, interest in mobile technologies in the country is high. But the attraction of Tsinghua as a research partner for Nokia goes beyond this statistic.  Seppo Pienimaa, who is heading NRC’s contribution to the research facility, commented: “China’s universities have excellent facilities both for teaching and research in science and technology.  With the increasing number of engineering graduates every year, the pool of talented and enthusiastic thinkers is large.  NRC is excited by the possibilities for collaboration that this opens up: we expect that sharing our ideas across borders, oceans, cultures and life experiences will help develop completely new areas of creativity and enable us both to pose - and to answer - the most challenging questions.”

 

About Tsinghua University

Tsinghua University, which was established in 1911, is one of the most famous comprehensive universities in China.

 

Currently, the university consists of 54 departments distributed in 13 schools, including the schools of sciences, architecture, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, information science and technology, humanities and social sciences, economics and management, law, arts and design, public policy and management, medical, and applied technology.

Nokia and Nokia Siemens Networks prepare for growth of telecommunications in Africa at CTO Roundtable

 

Telecommunications technology will in the coming years have a profound impact on many societies in Africa, contributing largely to the economic growth and wealth of millions of people on the continent.

 

This development, and issues related to the regulatory environment supporting the foreseen growth, will be the major themes of the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation’s (CTO) European-African Telecommunications Roundtable in Helsinki and Bonn, a meeting that will bring together leading decision makers from Africa, Europe and the telecoms industry.

 

Espoo, Finland - The CTO meeting will assemble high-level telecommunications officials from the organisation’s African member countries, with participants representing communications ministries and regulators from Ghana, Kenya, Namibia, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania, and Uganda. Officials from Finnish and German government and industry will also take part.

 

The roundtable is built around themes including the telecommunications ecosystem: the socio-economic impact of information and communication technology (ICT) and telecommunications, case studies from countries including Finland, and how similar development can be encouraged in New Growth Markets; and Europe-Africa cooperation, including European ICT initiatives in Africa and project financing.

 

Nokia Siemens Networks and Nokia are playing a key role in the meeting, contributing speakers and engaging in the dialogue that aims to increase understanding between the two continents, initiate concrete projects and lay the foundation for future discussions.

 

“While people around the world share the universal desire to connect with others, Nokia has dedicated itself to develop an unparalleled insight into the specific needs and aspirations of individuals in emerging markets. Less than a month ago, Nokia launched seven new phones based on this in-depth understanding, which are not only designed to be accessible to these consumers, but to also help spark development within the communities that they live and work,” said Veli Sundback, executive vice president of corporate relations and responsibility for Nokia.

 

“By 2015 we expect five billion people will be connected by wire and wirelessly from one end of the planet to the other, and the clear majority of these people will come from new growth markets in Asia and Africa. We are committed to connecting the world, and this event is an excellent opportunity to engage key stakeholders to help make this vision a reality,” said Lauri Kivinen, head of corporate affairs, Nokia Siemens Networks.

 

The CTO European/African Telecommunications Roundtable will run from May 28-31 in Helsinki, and then continues until June 1 in Bonn.

Nokia 8600 Luna: A definitive design statement with a touch of glass

 

The timeless beauty of glass highlights the latest evolution of Nokia's most coveted phone series

 

Espoo, Finland - Building upon a tradition of crafting its most unique and prestigious phones from trend-setting materials like chrome, stainless steel and titanium, Nokia today unveiled the Nokia 8600 Luna, which has been precision engineered from the same material that has inspired both artists and craftsmen for centuries- glass.

 

The melding of nearly opaque smoked glass with unique, soft-touch stainless steel makes the Nokia 8600 Luna as enchanting to behold as it is a joy to touch. Adding to its mysterious allure, a gentle keypad illumination pulsates from beneath the glass case while the phone awaits a call. Combined with the warmth of its glass and stainless steel body, this "heartbeat" transforms the Nokia 8600 Luna from an inanimate object into a trusted companion with an organic, virtually alive form. When a call does beckon, the signature slide movement is carefully balanced to smoothly raise the ergonomic keypad from within its glass cocoon.

 

“An obsession to every detail marked each step in the development process of the Nokia 8600 Luna. We took painstaking effort to ensure that the experience delivered by every surface - from the smoothness of glass against the face to the warmth of stainless steel in the palm to the superior tactile feedback of the keypad - would surpass any and all expectations," said Heikki Norta, Senior Vice President, Mobile Phones, Nokia. "Even the name holds special significance. Much like the Nokia 8600 Luna that we named in her honor, Luna, the goddess of moonlight, was often represented by the Romans as a mysteriously captivating beauty encircled in a soft, yet radiant light.”

 

The balance of aesthetics and ergonomics found in the design of the Nokia 8600 Luna continues in its well thought out feature set. Nokia's first use of a single micro-USB port not only allows for a streamlined design free of extraneous indentations, it allows owners to streamline common activities - like charging, audio and data connectivity - into a single connection. Quad-band GSM support also allows owners to easily stay connected while they are on the road, while the large, bright display is perfect for sharing images captured with the 2 megapixel camera.

 

The Nokia 8600 Luna is expected to be available during the 2nd quarter of 2007 at an estimated retail price of €700 before taxes and subsidies.

An artful fusion of materials and technology define new mid-range handsets

 

Nokia 6500 classic and Nokia 6500 slide wrap third-generation features in innovative, highly detailed designs

 

Espoo, Finland - Nokia today reaffirmed its leadership in driving the benefits of third generation technology to the mid-range market with the announcement of two new handsets, the Nokia 6500 classic and Nokia 6500 slide. Designed to be precisely balanced in the hand, with large keys and ergonomically correct dimensions and surfaces, both phones have been created with maximum usability in mind. Along with third generation WCDMA technology and sleek, contemporary designs, these new devices feature carefully engineered touches that help to ensure that the beauty endures. 

 

“Nokia is a recognized trailblazer of the 3G revolution and a pioneer in the use of new and innovative materials for mobile phones. With the Nokia 6500 classic and Nokia 6500 slide, Nokia is skillfully combining these areas of expertise to deliver a compelling blend of design and technology at a mid-range price point," said Peter Ropke, Senior Vice President, Broad Appeal Business Unit, Nokia.  "While features like the aluminum "loop" structure of the Nokia 6500 classic or the Carl Zeiss optics found in the Nokia 6500 slide separate these devices from the pack, it is the skillful balance of features and style that will make them irresistible to customers.”

 

Nokia 6500 classic

 

Instantly recognizable by its seamless case crafted from 360 degrees of anodized aluminum, the Nokia 6500 classic is a 9.5mm thin statement of unsurpassed attention to detail. As an expression of individuality, each Nokia 6500 classic is individually polished, ensuring that no two phones are exactly alike, while diamond polishing used on the beveled display aperture and cold stamped logo demonstrate the highest levels of craftsmanship.

 

However, the attention to detail found in the Nokia 6500 classic is much more than skin deep. Featuring dual band 3G technology for fast and easy downloads and browsing and quad-band GSM for worldwide roaming, the Nokia 6500 classic delivers state-of-the-art connectivity options for the most demanding of customers. A full 1 GB of internal memory means that the Nokia 6500 classic has capacity for far more pictures, videos, contacts, songs, messages and other content than the vast majority of other mid-tier mobile phones.

 

Nokia's dedication to usability is also evident in the Nokia 6500 classic. The Nokia Series 40 interface, familiar to millions of users around the globe, provides easy access to the powerful feature set, including a 2 megapixel camera with dual LED flash and an integrated music player. Furthermore, a unified micro-USB connector simplifies charging, audio and data connectivity by consolidating them into a single compact port. This allows for the Nokia 6500 classic to be easily used as a high-capacity flash drive or to be charged directly from a laptop computer - all with one cable.

 

The Nokia 6500 classic is expected to be available during the 3rd quarter of 2007 at an estimated retail price of €320 before taxes and subsidies.

 

Nokia 6500 slide

 

Featuring an enthusiast-quality 3.2 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and the ability to easily share pictures, videos and even video calls on a television, the Nokia 6500 slide brings unsurpassed levels of imaging and sharing to the mid-range market. Additionally, the Nokia 6500 slide delivers a refined tactile experience with its elegant brushed stainless steel finish and smooth slide mechanism.

 

The 3.2 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics found in the Nokia 6500 slide marks the first time that mid-range camera phone consumers have been able to experience the outstanding imaging capability of Carl Zeiss optics. The addition of autofocus, a dual LED flash and 8x digital zoom optimizes the Nokia 6500 slide for creating high-caliber images. Using the speed of 3G technology, these images and videos can be quickly shared with friends around the world, while the TV-out jack allows them to be instantly viewed on any television with standard RCA inputs. The TV-out feature can also be used to allow an entire group of people to simultaneously enjoy the fun of video calling.

 

Fashioned to stand apart from the crowd, the Nokia 6500 slide incorporates a number of design elements not often found in a mid-range device. Ensuring that the sophisticated brushed stainless steel body retains its timeless beauty, a unique hard coating helps to prevent scuffs, scratches, and even fingerprints. Precision engineering of the slide mechanism means that the Nokia 6500 slide feels solid in the hand, yet moves with a smooth, fluid action to create a decidedly upscale user impression.

 

The Nokia 6500 slide is expected to be available during the 3rd quarter of 2007 at an estimated retail price of €370 before taxes and subsidies.
