Nokia Announces Open C SDK Plug-In Availability for S60 Devices

 

New Plug-In for S60 3rd Edition SDK Eases Porting of Open-Source Projects, Increases Productivity and Speeds Time to Market for S60 Developers

 

Espoo, Finland - Nokia today announced the immediate availability of the Open C Plug-In extension for the S60 3rd Edition Software Development Kit (SDK), enabling easier porting of Linux-targeted open source projects to Symbian OS-based S60 smartphones and increased productivity for developers of mobile applications running on S60 devices.

 

Nokia’s Open C significantly improves productivity of S60 developers working in the Symbian C/C++ environment, giving them the use of familiar standard C function libraries for easy migration of open source and desktop applications to S60 on Symbian OS. By enabling the reuse of code from existing open source projects, Open C frees up developer time and resources to focus on the core mobility aspects of their applications.

 

Available for download at www.forum.nokia.com/openc , the Open C SDK Plug-In announced today allows deployment of Open C projects on existing S60 3rd Edition devices, millions of which have already been shipped into the global marketplace. By end-2006, Nokia alone had cumulatively shipped nearly 85 million S60 devices and of the 49 different S60 device models currently in the marketplace, 20 are built on the latest S60 3rd Edition platform.

 

“By making the Open C SDK Plug-In available, Nokia is helping to greatly broaden the potential pool of developers who will be essential in creating compelling applications for the next generation of smartphone devices,” said Lee Epting, vice president, Forum Nokia, Nokia’s global developer program. “Because Open C libraries are built on open-source projects, developers who need to design and implement large application bases to run on several operating systems, will now find it easier to write portable code for Symbian OS based devices. The increase in developer productivity from Open C will drive exciting new opportunities for S60 application development.”

 

Open C makes it possible for developers to implement business logic and other core components of an application without having to learn Symbian’s proprietary C++ variant.  In addition, Open C delivers to developers significant portions of three open source projects - OpenSSL, GNOME, and LIBZ - providing the S60 developer community access to middleware functionality that is shared by many important open source projects, including Apache and Firefox.

 

“Open C will allow S60 and third party developers to port, with greater ease, a whole range of open source software,” said Adam Leach, principal analyst, mobile user experience, Ovum.  “Open C will also help S60 licensees address the issue of time-to-market by making porting of existing software assets developed in C for non-Symbian phone projects over to S60 much easier.”

 

Through its implementation of five additional middleware C libraries and extension of four Unix-compatible, industry standard mobile POSIX libraries on Symbian OS that were recently introduced by Symbian, Open C provides an optimized solution to migrate open source and desktop applications to S60 on Symbian OS.

 

Open C covers more than 70 percent of the functions contained in the desktop and server projects on which the mobile libraries are based. The implementation includes 100 percent coverage of libraries containing such mobile-critical features as password hashing, compression and loading DLLs, while scaling back coverage in libraries containing features that are less relevant to mobile applications development.

 

Key features of the Open C SDK Plug-In for S60 3rd Edition now available include:

 

Headers and libraries of the C libraries (ARMv5, GCCE, WINSW);

Emulator DLLs;

Signed SIS package for installing Open C libraries to device;

Open C API documentation;

Open C example applications; and,

libglib sources and LGPL license text file.

 

Additional information and download of Nokia’s Open C SDK Plug-In for S60 3rd Edition is available online at: www.forum.nokia.com/openc .

PRESS RELEASE

 

 

 

April 05, 2007

 

Nokia makes payment to Qualcomm for right to use UMTS patents after April 9, 2007

 

Espoo, Finland - Nokia announced today that it has paid Qualcomm USD 20 million for patent licenses covering the second quarter 2007.  Nokia and Qualcomm have had patent license agreements since 1992 and Nokia’s obligations to pay license fees under the old agreements partially expire on April 9, 2007.  The payment announced today does not extend, and is not related to, the old agreement. Rather, it is based on the licenses that Qualcomm has agreed and provided through the European Telecommunication Standardization Institute (ETSI).

 

“As we continue to negotiate the new cross-license agreement, Nokia views this payment as fair and reasonable compensation for the use of relevant Qualcomm essential patents in Nokia UMTS handsets during the second quarter of 2007.  Nokia believes that Qualcomm’s patent portfolio is concentrated in the United States, and that it has few or no alleged UMTS patents in many of the countries in which Nokia has substantial UMTS handset sales. When Qualcomm’s early patents become paid-up and royalty-free on April 9, 2007 Qualcomm’s share of all patents relevant to Nokia UMTS handsets will significantly decrease”, said Rick Simonson, chief financial officer, Nokia.

 

Nokia intends to make similar payments in the future and will announce such payments when they are made.

 

Nokia has until 2007 paid less than 3 per cent cumulative license fees under all of its patent license agreements involving WCDMA products.

 

Nokia retains the right to ask Qualcomm, and its customers, to respect Nokia’s patents rights. The retained rights have significant value, and Nokia believes it is well positioned to offset any claims Qualcomm may make against Nokia products to claim more money in license fees.

 

“It is important to note that as of April 9, 2007, Qualcomm’s entire chipset business becomes exposed to Nokia’s extensive GSM, WCDMA and CDMA patent portfolios and Nokia will use all rights from those portfolios when defending itself against any new Qualcomm litigation”, Simonson concluded.

PRESS RELEASE

 

 

 

April 12, 2007

 

Nokia has paid less than 3 per cent gross royalty rate for WCDMA handsets

 

Nokia today confirmed that until 2007 it has paid less than 3 per cent aggregate license fees on WCDMA handset sales under all its patent license agreements. This number represents Nokia’s aggregate gross royalty payments made under all the numerous patent license agreements applicable to its WCDMA handsets. It excludes infrastructure related royalties and all royalty income collected by Nokia.

 

The above WCDMA handset related royalty payments made by Nokia include all WCDMA handset royalty payments made to Qualcomm.

 

From April 9, 2007, Nokia contractually has a fully paid up license covering Qualcomm’s early patents and thus those patents are licensed to Nokia royalty free for its handsets going forward in perpetuity.  Therefore Nokia’s licensing agreements with Qualcomm for the future will focus only on the terms for Qualcomm’s newer patents.

PRESS RELEASE

 

 

 

April 12, 2007

 

Leading mobile companies to endorse common mobile TV implementation based on OMA BCAST

 

Common implementation profile defined within the Broadcast Mobile Convergence Forum ensures service interoperability and economies of scale for Mobile TV devices

 

Hague, the Netherlands - Digitenne, Ericsson, KPN, Nokia, Nokia Siemens Networks, NXP Semiconductors, Sony Ericsson, Telefónica, O2 Europe, T-Mobile, Vodafone and ZTE today announced their support for a Mobile TV implementation profile developed within the Broadcast Mobile Convergence Forum (bmcoforum). The profile simplifies the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA) Mobile Broadcast Services Enabler Suite (BCAST) specification for fast implementations ensuring interoperability and future proofing further developments.

 

The three main features supported by this profile are:

 

1. Advanced service and program guide (ESG) enabling a rich set of services

2. Support for multiple broadcast technologies

3. Support for content and service protection, using the Smart Card Profile (based on (U)SIM Card) or the DRM Profile (based on OMA DRM V2.0)

 

Support for DVB-H broadcast networks and cellular systems, as well as the 3G Mobile Broadcast Service (MBMS), are benefits of the OMA-BCAST specification. This allows companies to extend current business models and broaden current and future Mobile TV services. As a result, operators will be able to offer customers more choice in watching TV on their handset.

 

The bmcoforum OMA BCAST implementation profile ensures the best possible interoperability between the handsets and broadcast systems, providing customers with a smooth Mobile TV experience, and allowing large scale handset development.

 

It is the firm belief that such a profile will speed up large scale Mobile TV deployments in Europe

 

The profile defined by bmcoforum is the first implementation subset of the feature rich Mobile Broadcast Services Enabler Suite 1.0 (OMA BCAST 1.0) developed by the Open Mobile Alliance.

“Digitenne aims to provide wholesale DVB-H services to the various mobile operators in The Netherlands” explains Marc van Dijk, head of Business Development for Digitenne, the provider of the commercial digital terrestrial TV services in the Netherlands. “We have chosen bmcoforum’s implementation profile for OMA BCAST so that the mobile operators have the flexibility to run their own Mobile TV business without losing interoperability. Furthermore the baseline profile of OMA BCAST will allow content providers to develop Mobile TV content that can be used for the whole market.”

 

“Ericsson sees that TV is significantly changing as it evolves from linear TV to personalised and interactive TV. We support open solutions with a common approach for Mobile TV delivery across 3G networks over HSPA and MBMS as well as in other broadcast networks”, says Claes Ödman, head of Multimedia Solutions at Ericsson. “Now, with the OMA BCAST enabler, this is possible in an interoperable manner, allowing the combination of Mobile TV based on Unicast and Broadcast services. The bmcoforum profile will help tremendously in accelerating the deployment and roll-out of such services.”

 

“KPN very much welcomes the bmcoforum initiative to profile the OMA standard. Having an agreed baseline for Mobile TV technology will help us deliver a compelling interactive TV service to our customers. The Mobile TV market has had to wait for a clear technological direction. This important agreement should help all players in the Mobile TV market to speed up the delivery of attractive services on a growing range of affordable, high quality handsets,” says Franklin Selgert, innovation manager KPN.

 

“Nokia warmly welcomes the industry agreement for the end-to-end implementation profile that caters for both DVB-H and 3G solutions,” says Jouni Kämäräinen, Director, Multimedia, Nokia. “We see a strong parallel to the early days of development of GSM. The great commitment in the industry for a clear implementation profile will be followed by common test practices that will create a coherent and open market for successful worldwide DVB-H deployments. The bmcoforum implementation profile of the OMA BCAST standard is essential in launching Mobile TV services on a global scale.”

 

“NXP Semiconductors, as a provider of complete ‘TV on Mobile System Solutions’, fully endorses the efforts of the bmcoforum and supports the production of the bmcoforum implementation profile based on OMA BCAST specification. We see clear industry and customer demand for such an activity and we welcome the opportunity to align our system solution development by combining our 3G mobile phone and integrated DVB-H TV on Mobile reference receivers with the bmcoforum derived OMA BCAST implementation profile,” said Kees Joosse, Senior Director, Business Development, BL-Personal Entertainment Solutions, NXP Semiconductors.

 

“We at Nokia Siemens Networks believe that a fast and successful Mobile TV market requires timely availability of interoperable implementations,” says Dr. Thomas Werner, Head of the Business Line Applications in the Business Unit Service Core & Applications at Nokia Siemens Networks. “Many operators use an incremental approach to introduce Mobile TV services. In this context, the bmcoforum profile of the OMA BCAST standard helps speed up implementation and interoperability testing. Starting with basic functionality and enabling more standardised features as the market develops, this profile has the potential to provide a future-proof path towards feature-rich Mobile TV services, delivered over DVB-H, MBMS and Unicast networks alike.”

 

Dave Williams, CTO of Telefónica O2 Europe, said:  “We have led DVB-H development in the UK, Germany and Ireland through customer trials and consortium activity. We believe that the OMA BCAST set of standards provides the best option for the implementation of integrated multi-media services using DVB-H broadcast technology in combination with 3G/MBMS packet data services and look forward to its deployment across Europe.”

 

“T-Mobile supports all activities to finalise the specification of OMA Smart Card Profile and OMA ESG. We consider Smart Card Profile and OMA ESG to be the most future proof technologies which will support interactive services for a wide range of handset and provides the highest level of security,” says Alexander Gedrovics, head of service platforms at T-Mobile International.

 

“Vodafone is committed to following the OMA BCAST standard for the implementation of future Broadcast-type multimedia services based on complementary Broadcast network technologies such as DVB-H and 3G/MBMS. Broadcast Service Protection via Smartcard and the Electronic Service Guide (ESG) are key elements of the OMA BCAST standard which will bring clear customer benefits,” says Dr. Alfred Baier, Senior Programme Manager for Mobile TV Technology at Vodafone Group. “We actively support the development of dedicated OMA BCAST implementation profiles within the bmcoforum, as this will help us to provide compelling Mobile TV services and terminals that delight our customers across all of our markets.”

 

“We have introduced the most advanced 3G DVB-H phone to the European market. With the partnership with bmcoforum, ZTE has the strong capability to deliver additional mobile TV phones based in OMA BCAST standard for the global customers” said MR. Li Yingfeng, General Manager of ZTE WCDMA mobile terminal products.

PRESS RELEASE

 

 

 

April 13, 2007

 

Qualcomm is the largest user of Nokia technology and patents

 

Espoo, Finland - Nokia today rejected Qualcomm’s public statements that it does not use Nokia patents. Nokia has for the last fifteen years contributed its technology to industry standards, such as GSM, WCDMA and CDMA. If Qualcomm’s products comply with industry standards it is in the same position as any other supplier of mobile technology in that it needs access to Nokia’s patents covering standardized technologies.

 

Nokia believes that Qualcomm is currently using over one hundred of Nokia’s GSM/WCDMA and CDMA2000 essential patents in its chipsets. Nokia and Qualcomm are yet to agree on the compensation payable by Qualcomm for such patents. With its more than 200 million units annually, Qualcomm is the largest user in the world of Nokia’s technology and patents. Nokia’s request for royalty payments from Qualcomm is based on royalty levels which are fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory (FRAND).

 

Since the early 1990’s Nokia has invested over $35 billion in R&D and built one of the wireless industry’s strongest and broadest IPR portfolios with over 11,000 patent families.

 

From April 9, 2007, Nokia contractually has a fully paid up license covering Qualcomm’s early patents and thus those patents are licensed to Nokia royalty free for its handsets going forward in perpetuity.

 

Nokia and Qualcomm continue to be in cross-license negotiations aimed at reaching a mutually acceptable agreement in a timely manner.

Created by nature, perfected by Nokia: The Nokia 8800 Sirocco Gold

 

Highly desirable handset dressed in 18-carat gold plating

 

Espoo, Finland - Inspired by nature, and one of its most beautiful elements, gold, Nokia today unveiled the Nokia 8800 Sirocco Gold -  a bold and prestigious new style statement. Encased in a luxurious 18-carat gold plating, the precisely crafted Nokia 8800 Sirocco Gold combines timeless design with a contemporary flair, resulting in an exclusive display of personal style and elegance. The Nokia 8800 Sirocco Gold is now available in select markets, with an estimated retail price of EUR 1000, before taxes or subsidies.

 

“The Nokia 8800 Sirocco Gold is set to continue Nokia's strong legacy in exclusive and highly desirable style accessories,” explains Heikki Norta, Senior Vice President, Mobile Phones, Nokia. “The Nokia 8800 Sirocco Gold remains true to the “form follows function” mantra of Nokia designers and engineers - a tradition built upon decades of experience in mobility.”

 

Combining its heritage of highly desired communication devices with organic designs inspired by surfaces found in nature, the Nokia 8800 Sirocco Gold pays artful attention to the smallest details and selection of materials. A stunning achievement of craftsmanship, fine white gold accents enhance the 18-carat gold plating while the sapphire-coated, scratch-resistant glass display helps to ensure that the beauty of the Nokia 8800 Sirocco Gold endures.

 

Created with a dedication to perfection, the crafting of each Nokia 8800 Sirocco Gold draws from techniques mastered over hundreds of years by watchmakers and jewelers. A smooth sliding mechanism reveals a high-resolution camera (2 Megapixel) and the intuitive and ergonomic keypad.

Samsung and Nokia to Cooperate on Mobile TV Interoperability

 

Companies to engage in DVB-H enabled handset and network compatibility testing to accelerate time to market for broadcast mobile TV services

 

Helsinki, Finland and Seoul, South Korea - To encourage greater adoption of broadcast mobile TV services and accelerate service deployment, Samsung and Nokia today announced they will work to achieve interoperability among their DVB-H (Digital Video Broadcast - Handheld) enabled mobile devices and the open standards based Nokia network services system.  The handset manufacturers will work together to support solutions based on the open OMA BCAST standard available for operator partners interested in deploying multi-vendor mobile TV services and trials in 2007 and onward.

 

“Within DVB-H technology, Samsung has already commercialized handsets based on the CBMS OSF standard, and will develop the OMA BCAST standard based mobile TV handset. Its inclusion in our product portfolios will enhance our customers’ flexibility in choosing suitable standards based on their business models,” says Kwang Suk Hyun, Senior Vice President of Alliance Team of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.

 

“Nokia warmly welcomes the collaboration in accelerating the adoption of DVB-H based mobile TV services to the market. We see that the OMA BCAST standard is essential in launching mobile TV services on a global scale,” says Harri Männistö, Director, Multimedia, Nokia. “Further, the well-defined service and content protection profiles within the OMA BCAST standard such as the already now available OMA DRM, provides the ideal path towards standardized solutions enabling a coherent and open market for successful worldwide mobile TV deployments.”

 

The deployment of mobile TV services will offer new business opportunities for companies across the value chain, including content and broadcast companies, mobile service providers, infrastructure and handset manufacturers, and technology providers. The availability of interoperable DVB-H enabled devices and services is a key factor in further opening up the market.

 

DVB-H is an effective technology for deploying broadcast mobile TV among the many digital technologies available to deliver mobile TV services. DVB-H technology offers high service level quality, low battery consumption and offers the end-user the ability to simultaneously receive broadcasts while using other mobile services such as telephony and internet access on their device.

 

In parallel to supporting mobile operators launching mobile TV services based on existing technologies in their networks, Samsung and Nokia are both active in ongoing standardization and technology development to optimize the broadcast mobile TV experience. The companies will work on interoperability efforts using the open OMA standard while continuing to participate in industry-wide interoperability efforts within the related standardization bodies.

 

Notes to the editors

DVB-H technology enables the TV service you are familiar with at home to be broadcast to your mobile device. DVB-H provides a superior end-user experience in the mobile environment with excellent picture and reduced battery consumption. Up to 50 TV channels can be delivered with low cost, over one network. With extensive pilots of broadcast mobile TV currently taking place across the globe, involving leading broadcasters, mobile operators, broadcast network operators and handset manufacturers, the market for commercial broadcast services is expected to grow throughout 2007.

Nokia and S60 make the Web personal on your mobile

 

Widgets open up the mobile market for Web designers

 

Espoo, Finland - Nokia introduces widget support for S60 and takes a significant step in realizing its vision of transforming mobility and the Internet with rich Web 2.0 experiences. S60 will be the first mobile software platform that enables the creation of widgets using familiar standards-based Web technologies. Available to all S60 licensees, widget support enhances the Internet experience on a mobile by bringing a personal Web experience to a personal device.

 

Widgets allow people to personalize Internet content into lightweight Web applications and stay current with the things that matter to them. While widgets have been available on PCs for some time, they bring particular advantages to mobile devices, as mobiles are highly personal and among the few items that we always carry with us.

 

“Mobility will change the Internet as people are able to access and create information specific to place, time and context,” said Tero Ojanperä, Chief Technology Officer, Nokia. “Widgets are an important milestone in this development. Introducing widget support for S60, much of the innovation seen on the Internet today is being brought to the mobile space for the benefit of the millions of S60 mobile device users”.

 

The world’s leading smartphone software, S60 on Symbian OS, will be complemented with Web Run-Time, a Web application development environment, enabling the development of widgets and integrated Web applications for mobile devices with familiar standards-based Web technologies, such as Ajax, JavaScript, CSS and HTML.

 

Web Run-Time is powered by the same feature rich, open-source environment used by the Web Browser for S60, the world’s first full HTML browser bringing a desktop-like browsing experience to millions of S60 mobile devices.

 

Web Run-Time offers numerous possibilities for Web application development. As the Web Run-Time is built with standard Web technologies, developers can create new innovative widgets and also migrate existing widgets from the desktop to S60 with minimal effort. In the future, widgets will benefit from connecting both to Web 2.0 services, Web content and to the core applications and capabilities of S60, such as phonebook, calendar and GPS.

 

Web Run-Time and widget support will be available to S60 licensees as part of the S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2.  Tools, documentation and a software developer kit for widget development will be made available via Forum Nokia during the third quarter 2007. Widgets will be distributed to users through several channels, one of which is WidSets, a popular consumer Internet service, which allows users to personalize their mobile Internet experience.

 

Nokia will host a live audiocast at 1.15 p.m. CET today as Chief Technology Officer Tero Ojanperä presents how Nokia and S60 make the Web personal on your mobile. To access the audiocast, please go to http://www.nokia.com/press/s60 or http://www.s60.com/business/newsevents/audiocast

 

For more information on S60 software, widgets and Web Run-Time, please visit www.s60.com/widget

 

Nokia alone has cumulatively shipped over 84 million S60 enabled devices by the end of 2006. To date, 55 devices based on S60 and Symbian OS have been launched, 26 of which are based on the latest S60 3rd Edition.

 

About S60

S60 software built on Symbian OS is the world’s leading smartphone software, and is licensed by some of the industry’s foremost mobile device manufacturers. The flexibility of the S60 software allows for various hardware designs and software configurations, as evidenced by the multitude of S60 devices already available on the market. Through its award-winning user interface, extensive support for new mobile services and the innovation potential for partner solutions, S60 provides an open and scalable business opportunity for mobile operators and 3rd party developers.

Orb’s intuitive solution simply streams a person’s own content from their home PC using the Web browser and media player of the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet thus creating a “personal media portal” from which users instantly access and enjoy home photos, videos, music, and even TV, from anywhere, anytime. With MyCasting, consumers can also remotely record TV programs using Orb’s Digital Video Recorder (DVR) function and then play back those recorded programs on the Nokia N800.

 

“The Nokia N800 Internet Tablet was developed to make it easy for people to access their favorite internet sites, content, and entertainment from the couch, airport or coffee shop- anywhere there is WiFi.

Nokia Demonstrates Leadership in Technologies for Internet on Mobile Devices at Web 2.0 Expo

 

San Francisco, US - This week at Web 2.0 Expo, Nokia will highlight how its mobile technologies strive to complete the Web 2.0 ecosystem. Through a global press announcement, speaking engagements, and live demonstrations, Nokia will showcase how it is enabling content and application developers to bring Web 2.0 experiences and communities to Nokia mobile devices to give people access to Internet content and services anytime, anywhere.

 

Nokia introduces widgets

Nokia announces today that it is taking a significant step in mobilizing Internet content and Web 2.0 services with its global launch of widget support and Web Run-Time, a new Web application development environment for developers.

 

Widgets are lightweight Web applications that bring Web content and Web 2.0 services directly to mobile devices. A widget appears as an application icon on a mobile device, so instead of having to open the browser, type in the Web address, find information and type in preferences or choose from drop down menus for more detailed information, a widget can be personalized by you, and get the same information  you want straight to your mobile device. Consumers can choose to receive content and services from their favorite Web sites - from news, to weather reports, traffic reports, search engines, email, blogs, games, social networking sites and more. With the constant development of new widgets and new exciting content, the possibilities of using widgets are limitless.

 

Nokia’s S60 - the world’s leading smartphone software and the first to bring the full HTML desktop-like browsing experience to millions of mobile devices - will be the first mobile software platform that enables the creation of widgets using familiar standards-based Web technologies, making it an innovative solution for a vast number of Web developers and designers.

 

S60 on Symbian OS will be complemented with Web Run-Time, a Web application development environment, enabling the development of widgets and integrated Web applications for mobile devices with familiar standards-based Web technologies, such as HTML, JavaScript, CSS and Ajax.

 

For more information on S60 software, widgets and Web Run-Time, please visit www.s60.com/webruntime

Nokia’s latest mobile phone gives you more time for the important things in life

 

The new Nokia 6120 classic combines faster download speeds with functionality

 

More and more consumers are using their mobile phones for tasks such as downloading music, streaming video, browsing the Internet or receiving emails with attachments. The compact Nokia 6120 classic phone makes these tasks faster and easier by utilizing HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access), an evolutionary technology offering downloads up to 10 times faster than over usual WCDMA networks.

 

Giving the Nokia 6120 even more functionality for busy lives, the new phone features two cameras — a 2-megapixel camera with 4-times digital zoom, flash and panorama mode for taking high-quality photographs as well as a second camera in the front that adds a personal touch to calls by making use of the video call feature.

 

The Nokia 6120 classic has even more ways that consumers can save time. For instance, with only a few short steps using the pre-loaded How-To Guides and a Set-up Wizard on the Nokia 6120 classic,  consumers can have their email, messaging and Internet connection up and running in less time. The Data Transfer application allows consumers to transfer contacts, calendars, photos, videos and files from their previous Nokia to their new Nokia 6120 classic, even when the SIM card is removed. And, by synchronizing their calendar from their office computer with the calendar featured in the Nokia 6120 classic phone, consumers can always have their schedule with them.

 

“Mobile phones have taken on a much larger role in our busy lives,” said Peter Ropke, Senior Vice President, Mobile Phones, Nokia. “We recognize that having the capability to utilize the mobile phone in many ways gives consumers a better balance between work and play. With the HSDPA technology, S60 operating system and the wide range of features of the Nokia 6120 classic, consumers will be able to make their daily lives more manageable.”

 

In many countries, 3G technology has offered consumers an enhanced mobile experience with faster browsing, streaming, music downloads and email and Internet access. The new Nokia HSDPA technology makes these applications, and many others, more accessible.

 

The Nokia 6210 classic is based on S60 software that lets users download and use additional applications in addition to the ones already found on the device. Users can personalize the phone with a wide variety of add-on applications, enhancements, content and service. S60 also allows users to run several applications at the same time enabling them to browse the Web while listening to their favourite music.

 

The Nokia 6120 classic is expected to begin shipping in the second quarter of 2007 with an estimated retail price of EUR260 before subsidies or taxes.

New Nokia security appliances go deep to find threats, meet growing network performance demands

 

Mountain View, CA, USA — Nokia (NYSE:NOK) today announces two new IP security appliances, Nokia IP290 and Nokia IP690 security platforms, rolling out a scalable hardware platform design offering better IT investment protection and a greater choice of security software applications to address emerging threats to company networks and data.

 

Nokia IP690 is the first new IP security appliance with a multi-core and multi-threading architecture optimized for performance and scalability, readying businesses for processor-intensive security applications. The new hardware design offers investment protection by extending product life from two years to an average of five years. Nokia hardware platforms purchased today are upgradeable when newer versions of the Nokia IPSO™ operating system are released, and Nokia IP690 is expandable through various interface cards and accelerated data path (ADP card) technologies. This expandable approach allows customers to retain their initial investment for longer periods of time by offering the flexibility to expand performance at their own pace.

 

“Businesses today are looking to get as much mileage as possible from every IT dollar spent, but they simply cannot compromise on performance when it comes to protecting the security of the corporate network,” said Tom Furlong, vice president, Security & Mobile Connectivity, Nokia. “By enabling our customers to boost the performance of their security appliance — when the time is right for them — we are giving them a way to protect their network while also protecting their IT investments.”

 

Nokia IP290 combines powerful network performance with a compact ½ RU form factor, offering branch offices and extended enterprise sites a full-featured security appliance backed by Nokia global support. Expandable with an included empty PMC slot, Nokia IP290 ships with Nokia IPSO 4.2 and an updated architecture, making it a reliable platform for unified threat management (UTM) implementations.

 

Nokia security appliances detect and block the increasingly sophisticated threats companies face as mobile device usage among workers expands, and as new network traffic patterns alter business security requirements. Nokia security solutions use deep packet inspection to uncover vulnerabilities and provide protection against application-level threats in the perimeter, core and data center.

 

Nokia IP690

Nokia IP690 security platform is designed to meet the demanding price performance, multi-Gigabit throughput and port-density requirements of medium to large businesses and service providers. Nokia IP690 readies businesses for processor-intensive security applications by introducing multi-core and multi-threading architecture. Businesses planning to implement next generation security applications can take advantage of the native enhancements and expandability features of Nokia IP690 without costly ‘forklift’ upgrades. A compact 1RU (rack unit) security appliance, Nokia IP690 supports next generation ADP cards to accelerate firewall and VPN performance and delivers enhanced business continuity through features such as dual, hot-swappable power supplies and optional redundant hard disk drives.

 

Nokia IP690 Firewall/VPN delivers up to 7 Gbps (Gigabit per second) of throughput performance and up to 16 Gigabit Ethernet ports to run Check Point® VPN-1 Power® and VPN-1 UTM family of applications.

 

Nokia IP690 Intrusion Prevention with Sourcefire delivers a 1 Gbps sensor and offers the unique combination of highest port density and performance in a single rack configuration. The solution is built on hardware optimized for security and offers the ease of use, reliability and rich feature set of the Nokia IPSO operating system.

 

Nokia IP290

Nokia IP290 is a multi-purpose security platform ideal for small and branch offices, and extended enterprises that require robust, large-enterprise performance, simple remote management, and high reliability at a low total cost of ownership. Powerful yet cost-effective, the compact, ½RU form factor design allows for side-by-side redundancy in a single 1RU pull-out tray providing a low-cost/high-availability solution with IP clustering and VRRP technologies (virtual router redundancy protocol).

 

Nokia IP290 Firewall/VPN supports traditional firewall and next generation security applications such as Check Point VPN-1 UTM, which includes firewall, VPN, intrusion prevention, anti virus and URL filtering. Nokia IP290 Firewall combines market-leading Nokia hardware design and quality with market-leading Check Point software and the Nokia IPSO operating system for maximum security, high availability, reliability and manageability.

 

Nokia IP290 Intrusion Prevention with Sourcefire, as part of the Nokia Intrusion Prevention (IPS) portfolio, ensures that whatever the performance requirements for a company’s network, there is an intrusion prevention appliance to meet them. Nokia offers performance of 100Mbps, 250Mbps, 400Mbps and 1Gbps across the product range. Nokia IP290 also offers resellers and system integrators a lower point-of-entry for branching out beyond firewalls to deliver intrusion prevention systems.

 

Pricing, Service and Support

Nokia IP290 and Nokia IP690 are available now starting at $3,995USD and $29,995USD respectively and are backed by world-class Nokia First Call — Final Resolution global support and services. Channel partners can also take advantage of the Nokia FastTrack marketing program for added incentives on Nokia Intrusion Prevention.
