Nokia brings advanced developer benefits for S60 software

S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2 supports competitiveness in mid-range market

Espoo, Finland - Nokia today introduced a new Feature Pack for S60 on Symbian OS(TM), the market leading smartphone platform. S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2 is designed for innovation and significantly facilitates the creation of compelling applications and accelerates performance. S60 3rd Edition is targeted for mid-range devices and offers significant usability enhancements for this category.

Development of applications and services for S60 devices will be faster and more cost-efficient as S60 brings a major extension to the C++ development environment with Open C. This introduction brings the familiar standard C function libraries to S60 software, supporting increased productivity and improved time-to-market of applications. With Open C, developers can reuse existing code and focus on the mobility aspects of their applications.

Symbian recently introduced four of the basic POSIX libraries on Symbian OS. With Open C, S60 is extending the reach and implementing five additional C libraries for an optimized solution to migrate open source and desktop applications to S60 on Symbian OS.  Open C libraries are part of the S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2 and will be integrated into the publicly available software development kits.

Feature Pack 2 comes with improvements in usability and software architecture focusing primarily on the mid-range device category. Usability enhancements support the ease of use in for example messaging, multitasking and downloading. Feature Pack 2 also enables instant media playback during downloading and animated notification of inbound calls. Architectural improvements focus on ensuring excellent performance and flexibility of S60 in various hardware configurations, and include for example support for demand paging virtual memory technique.

“Feature Pack 2 is a major element of our strategy to support handset vendors in creating devices for the mid-range market,” says Matti Vänskä, Vice President, Mobile Software Sales and Marketing, Nokia. “There are already five S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1 devices launched worldwide by three handset vendors. The emphasis with Feature Pack 2 is on improved user experience, usability and ever richer development environment”.

“Supplier efforts to simplify the user experience of smartphone software platforms are a key factor in attracting and retaining users, especially as those platforms strengthen their position in mainstream markets. But the ultimate success of smartphones rests with attracting the widest array of application developers. Aligning handset development more closely with the desktop is a good step towards achieving this,” says Tony Cripps, senior analyst, mobile user experience, Ovum.

S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2 will be available for all S60 device manufacturers in Q2. It is fully compatible with S60 3rd Edition, and applications developed for 3rd Edition will run on all Feature Pack 2 devices. The new Feature Pack 2 will be demonstrated at the 3GSM World Congress 2007 in Barcelona in S60 stand in Hall 8.

According to Canalys research (January, 2007), S60 is the clear leader in converged device software with 54% market share globally in Q4 2006. Nokia alone has cumulatively shipped nearly 85 million S60 enabled devices by the end of 2006. To date, 49 devices based on S60 and Symbian OS have been launched, 20 of which are based on the latest S60 3rd Edition.

About S60

Nokia Delivers Free Downloadable Maps to the Mobile World

smart2go mapping and navigation platform made available for the most popular mobile operating systems

Espoo, Finland - Nokia today announced that it is making its smart2go mapping and navigation platform, available for free download (www.smart2go.com), enabling millions of people to use the most comprehensive map coverage offered on a mobile device. The platform allows for mapping and routing in over 150 countries and has support for full turn-by-turn satellite navigation in over 30 countries. The application allows people to view where they are on a map, search for points-of-interests (POI) around them and create routes to get them there free of charge. Nokia plans to start offering the smart2go application for free, on Saturday, February 10th, for selected Nokia S60 and Windows Mobile 5.0 devices initially and has plans to roll out support for most of the major mobile OS platforms including Nokia S60, Series 40, PocketPC, Linux and other Windows Mobile devices.

Nokia plans to pre-install the smart2go mapping and navigation application on all future Nokia Nseries multimedia computers under the name “Nokia Maps”. Current owners of Nokia devices may also download Nokia Maps to their supported devices. And now, by paring your non-GPS enabled mobile device with a Nokia Wireless GPS Module LD-3W or other compatible GPS module, Nokia Maps can provide the same fantastic navigation experience for a broad range of Nokia devices.

The platform contains over 15 million POIs that help people explore the most interesting sights, restaurants or accommodations around them. Customers can select their favorite locations and send them to friends by multimedia message, Bluetooth wireless technology, infrared or e-mail. They can also send map excerpts and routes or save map screen shots to the gallery on the device.  Recognized brand names like McDonald’s will have the option to place branded icons across the world’s digital maps downloaded onto millions of mobile devices.

“People will trust and use maps if they have those maps with them when they need them, and smart2go allows consumers the full freedom of which maps they want to carry with them. By offering Nokia Maps and smart2go for free on your mobile device, cost is no longer a barrier for anyone to enjoy the convenience of maps and routing on-the-go,” said Ralph Eric Kunz, vice-president, Nokia, Multimedia. “Nokia is on track to build the world’s most connected location based platform for mobile devices which also opens up interesting opportunities for future services.”

smart2go is a hybrid map solution: Map data from Tele-Atlas and Navteq can be downloaded directly via wireless network (e.g. GPRS/3G/WLAN) and stored on the devices memory card as needed. If all the desired map data is stored, no network connection is needed for mapping, routing and navigation. For managing downloads of bigger sizes there is an additional PC desktop tool available.

smart2go comes with the option to upgrade to full fledged turn-by-turn navigation. With just some clicks, customers can turn their device into a voice guided navigation system by purchasing a navigation license. There are various licenses available: from a one week to a three year term. When traveling to a new country for holiday one can download the relevant maps via PC in advance and subscribe to the navigation service for the duration of the holiday at affordable cost.

About the “smart2go” mapping and routing application

smart2go is new: the software turns mobile computers, smartphones and PDAs into local mapping and routing engines with a navigation option, providing worldwide mapping free of charge. In so doing, the unique hybrid solution combines the advantages of on-board and off-board navigation. Maps and location-aware content only need to be loaded once - they are then always available on the client.  As smart2go will carry the application name “Nokia Maps” across many future Nokia devices, it will also be available for a diversity of other operating systems such as Windows Mobile 5 and Linux, in the future.

Nokia and SFR complete the first WCDMA 900 voice call in France

Espoo, Finland - Nokia and French operator SFR have carried out a technical pilot on WCDMA 3G/HSDPA voice call on the 900 MHz band in SFR’s network. The equipment used for the voice and data calls included the Nokia Flexi WCDMA Base Station with a special solution for sharing the existing GSM site infrastructure and thus reducing implementation costs significantly, and a Nokia prototype of a WCDMA 900 mobile device.

The 900 MHz band can provide a larger coverage area than the most commonly used 2 GHz band, thus reducing network deployment costs significantly especially in the rural areas. It also improves the availability of 3G services indoors due to better radio signal propagation characteristics.

“We are impressed by the voice quality of the call, and the HSDPA user data transfer speed reached our expectations. The WCDMA 900 MHz variant brings us an efficient solution, which could allow us to extend our 3G services to rural areas cost-effectively,” says Paul Corbel, Chief Technical Officer, SFR.

“These WCDMA 900 voice and data calls are another testimony of Nokia’s strong end-to-end capability and commitment to support operators in developing their offering to better meet the demand that they face in today’s increasingly competitive environment,” says Olivier de Percin, Account Director, Networks, Nokia. “With the Nokia WCDMA 900 solution, network operators can provide wireless broadband services, such as HSPA, to their customers in a very cost-efficient way.”

Nokia Flexi WCDMA Base Station and Nokia Flexi Multiradio Combiner enable SFR to share their existing GSM900 base station site, including base station cabinets, antenna lines and power system, with the WCDMA 3G network.

Nokia and SFR have been working together for more than 10 years and Nokia has provided SFR with GSM and WCDMA 3G/HSDPA radio and core network equipment and services.

About SFR

With more than 17.8 million customers and 8,000 employees, SFR is the second largest mobile telecommunications operator in France. Operating its own GSM/GPRS and UMTS/HSDPA networks, SFR is able to provide a complete range of mobile telephony and multimedia services, as well as mobile data solutions to its personal, SOHO and business customers. SFR has become the operator of choice for new uses of mobile phones, having been the first operator to launch 3G and 3G+ services on the French market, and now boasts 2,7 million 3G customers. The company is also a player on the fixed telecommunications market through its 40,6 %  interest in Neuf Cegetel, the leading alternative operator on the French market. SFR benefits from a stable ownership structure, with two major shareholders, Vivendi (56%) and Vodafone (44%).

Nokia Growth Partners Fund increased with 100 Million USD

Establishes a new Fund of Funds and special focus on China and India

John Gardner and Paul Asel to co-manage the fund

Menlo Park, Calif., US and Espoo, Finland - Nokia Growth Partners, a global private equity and venture capital management firm backed by Nokia, today announced a significant expansion of the group’s investment plans providing an additional $100 million investment into a Fund of Funds program with a special focus on emerging technology markets, including India and China. The firm also announced that John Gardner and Paul Asel, two industry veterans, will lead the expansion effort.

Launched in 2004, Nokia Growth Partners’ inaugural $100 million Venture Capital Fund invests directly into growth stage technology companies that share an alignment of business interests with Nokia.

Nokia Growth Partners has now created a Fund of Funds program targeting an additional $100 million of investments in top tier venture funds that offer access to emerging markets and/or exposure to innovative technologies in domain areas beyond the scope of Nokia’s traditional core businesses.

Building on the earlier successes of its direct investment Venture Capital Fund, Nokia Growth Partners will also devote additional resources to increase its activity in Asia, with specific emphasis on China and India. Nokia Growth Partners will be managing a combined $200 million of capital between the Venture Capital Fund and the Fund of Funds program.

“Over the past decade, Nokia has crafted an innovative, systematic and sustainable strategy to private equity and venture capital”, says Rick Simonson, CFO of Nokia. “An important tenet at Nokia is to strive to be “best in class” in all areas of operations.  Our investment in BlueRun Ventures, a global early stage venture capital fund, and Nokia Growth Partners, a strategic global growth fund, provides Nokia with a holistic approach to gaining access to the innovation and partnering opportunities created in a broad slice of the venture capital industry spectrum, all on a disciplined, return on investment basis.  The expansion of the Nokia Growth Partners platform into fund of funds investing is the logical next step in this continuum.”

Nokia is driving to mobilize the Internet. According to Tero Ojanperä, Nokia’s Executive Vice President and CTO, much of the outside innovation Nokia is looking to find, lies in areas beyond the company’s traditional core businesses.

“It is obvious that today’s mobile handset is about photos, music, TV, video, navigation, buddy finding, even social networking. Media sharing and staying connected is what the phenomena is all about”, said Ojanperä. “In order to capitalize on these trends, Nokia will need to partner with third parties and adapt and adopt with greater speed and agility than ever before.  Nokia Growth Partners plays a key role in allowing Nokia to tap into venture capital driven innovation, and this expansion is further evidence of our commitment to venture capital investing as part of our renewal initiatives.”

This expansion of Nokia New Growth Partners will be lead by John Gardner and Paul Asel who together have a combined 30+ years of venture and global investing experience, and will join the existing team at Nokia Growth Partners as Managing Partners. Current team of Rob Trice, Tapio Siik and Markus Salolainen, who launched Nokia Growth Partners in December 2004, are all continuing as partners at the firm.

John Gardner comes to Nokia Growth Partners from BlueRun Ventures where he was a partner from firm inception; he has over 15 years experience advising and working with start-up and emerging businesses, and is a long time wireless communications industry veteran.

Paul Asel joins Nokia Growth Partners from the International Finance Corporation, where he led the technology investment practice in India.  Paul has over 15 years of global, technology focused investment experience in the United States, India, Russia and East Asia.

Nokia Growth Partners will continue to work closely with BlueRun Ventures.  The two firms operate independently but share a common investor in Nokia, a long standing working history amongst the partners, as well as complementary technology and financial investment targets.

Nokia builds on vision of mobilizing the internet to transform mobile communication

CEO announces new products including the next generation of Nokia Eseries devices, plus navigation and Mobile TV devices targeted at the mass market

3GSM World Congress 2007, Barcelona, Spain/Espoo, Finland - Nokia President and CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo reinforced the company’s commitment to lead the next phase of mobility and unveiled a new line up of devices and services that harness internet connectivity and will begin to transform how people use mobility in their professional and personal lives.

Speaking at the Nokia Press Conference at the show, Kallasvuo said “The worlds of mobility and the internet are merging, but as an industry we are still only scratching the surface of the possibilities this offers. Nokia is driving the change, taking a lead in harnessing this new connectivity in ways that will transform how we use mobile devices for work and in our personal lives. The products we are launching today reflect some key areas that we believe will become part of this new connected life and where we will start to see much more widespread adoption.”

Taking business mobility to the next level

Centre stage in Nokia’s news today are a series of new announcements focused on removing the barriers to widespread adoption of business mobility, and making it easier and more compelling for business customers and operators to benefit from it.

The company announced a trio of new Nokia Eseries devices, designed for business professionals, including  the slim line Nokia E61i emailer device, the stylish Nokia E65 slider, and an evolution of the legendary communicator into an all inclusive business device with advanced technologies, such as HSDPA and integrated GPS, the Nokia E90 Communicator.

Each is a feature packed, design rich device using 3G and Wlan technologies, and the flexible S60 software platform, to enhance the way people experience work in a mobile world. The devices also feature high-quality cameras.

Nokia E65 is available now in select markets, with broader availability building during the first quarter of 2007. Nokia E61i will be available during the second quarter of 2007, and the first deliveries of the Nokia E90 Communicator are anticipated to take place during the second quarter of 2007, with volume global availability during third quarter of 2007.

The company also announced the launch of Nokia Intellisync Mobile Suite 8.0 mobileware, the industry’s most flexible platform, providing mobile email, mobile file and data synchronization and robust security and device management capabilities to the Nokia Eseries products and more than 100 other devices - the most extensive support in the industry. New or enhanced features include a two-tier licensing model, a new user interface, further strengthened mobile security capabilities, and extensive additional language and connectivity support.

Navigation set to become a mainstream feature

Recognizing the huge potential of location based services, one of the fastest growing areas in mobile devices, Nokia released its first mass market navigation-enabled mobile phone, the Nokia 6110 Navigator.

Using integrated GPS, the phone enables consumers to quickly and easily view their current location on map, search for destinations, find specific routes, or locate nearby services such as restaurants, hotels or shops. Featuring full turn-by-turn 3D navigation, it suggests the best route to follow by car or on foot, using voice or visual instructions on a map.  The Nokia 6110 Navigator is expected to begin shipping in the second quarter of 2007.

Accelerating mobile TV adoption

Kallasvuo also unveiled the Nokia N77 multimedia computer designed to accelerate the take up of DVB-H mobile TV devices, a market he predicted would reach between 5 to 10 million units by end of 2008 and around 20 million units by the end of 2009.

The Nokia N77 is an easy to use and stylishly mobile TV device. Features include a wide 2.4” screen with up to 16 million colors, high quality stereo sound, alerts when programs are starting, and a guide to view program information for up to seven days, browse TV channels, and purchase new channels. It is expected to start shipping during the second quarter of 2007 in countries where DVB-H services are available.

 

Building on the importance of Internet video content, Nokia also launched the Nokia Video Center, an application that brings together all the sources of mobile video, and announced YouTube and Reuters as the first global content partners. The service combines branded video services, internet videos and sideloaded videos from the PC in one single place. It will be available globally in the markets where Nokia Nseries devices are sold, preinstalled first in the Nokia N95 multimedia computer and available for download to other Nokia Nseries multimedia computers.

Also at the 3GSM show, Nokia introduced the new Nokia 3110 classic, a robust and dependable device with a contemporary design. With applications including an FM stereo radio, music player with expandable memory, video ringing tones and a 1.3 megapixel camera, the Nokia 3110 classic offers a wide range of conventional features at an accessible price. It is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2007.

The Nokia Bluetooth Display Car Kit CK-15W, compatible with the new Nokia 3110 classic and a wide range of other devices, was released at the show. The Kit offers a number of elements that enable easy in-car communications including a large color screen for easy usage and viewing. It is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2007.

In technology news, Nokia announced a software collaboration with Telecom Italia to further strengthen the operator’s innovative service portfolio as they select S60 software to drive growth in the advanced mobile market in Italy.

Nokia expands the opportunity for business mobility beyond the executive suite

Nokia Intellisync Mobile Suite 8.0 brings unmatched flexibility and cost-control for mobile deployments around the world

3GSM World Congress 2007, Barcelona, Spain/Espoo, Finland -Nokia (NYSE:NOK) today announced Nokia Intellisync Mobile Suite 8.0, the industry’s most comprehensive platform for business mobility.  A new software release, Nokia Intellisync Mobile Suite 8.0 combines a comprehensive platform of wireless email, file synchronization and application synchronization, with the robust security, asset collection and reporting of fully integrated device management.

With this new release, Nokia responds to customer feedback by delivering an uncompromised approach to both flexibility and support for today’s business demands.  By offering an increased array of deployment options — behind the firewall, hosted or white-label — with an increased choice of supported devices and platforms from virtually every vendor, covering S60 and UIQ on Symbian OS, Palm, Windows Mobile, Pocket PC and more, the flexibility on how and to whom mobility can be delivered has been given back to businesses and operators. Furthermore the combination of a two-tier licensing model and support for Java-based J2ME(TM) phones, such as Nokia Series40, lowers the barrier associated with widespread mobility.  Combining this with an already comprehensive suite, Nokia is able to provide a solution for the market that can grow as the mobility requirements of an organization or operator evolve and further address the needs of a previously overlooked market segment.

With today’s news, Nokia further delivers on its mobile software strategy to expand the horizon of business mobility users beyond the executive suite, to enable operators and service providers to extend their value added services with a single platform, and to extend support to a broader range of mobile devices. With this approach, Nokia is enabling both businesses and operators to move beyond ad hoc or point mobility implementations, and build an entire mobile strategy.

“Three years ago we set out to change the way people do business with the help of mobile technology,” said Scott Cooper, vice president, Mobility Solutions, Enterprise Solutions, Nokia. “Today, we are bringing to market mobileware that is uncompromised - on capability, price, design, platform, and on user experience. We are delivering a mobility platform with a strong combination of advanced technology, robust security, scalability and ease of use - topics that make sense for the mobile workforce, the IT manager, business decision-makers, and operators alike.”

Furthermore, the combination of Nokia Intellisync Mobile Suite 8.0 and Nokia Eseries devices also announced today significantly increases the potential for businesses to achieve new levels of productivity and competitive advantage. This combination also provides unmatched opportunities for operators, service providers, and system integrators.

“We selected Nokia Intellisync mobile suite as our push email solution for its broad ranging support devices - said Mr Luca Luciani - Head of Mobile Domestic Services Telecom Italia - Our strategy is to provide innovative services to our customers, great value and maximum flexibility. We look forward to the enhanced feature set that Nokia Intellisync Mobile Suite 8.0 will deliver, driving even stronger benefits for the users.”

The Nokia Intellisync Mobile Suite 8.0 base server includes entry level wireless email as part of the offering, enabling a business to cost effectively extend email throughout the organization.  The base client offers the ability to compose, read and delete email and manage local folders, in addition to robust security. The professional client extends beyond the base version to include full personal information management (PIM) synchronization, full attachment handling, global address list support and more.

“Nokia Intellisync Mobile Suite 8.0 will mark a new era in business mobility, which will be hard to match by any other software provider,” said Stuart Hardy, managing director for LayerOne. “We have been offering Nokia Intellisync Wireless Email to our customers for the past two years and are excited about the latest improvements. The advanced features, scalability, and competitively priced solution have allowed us to lead other services offered in the South African market. The power of Nokia Intellisync Mobile Suite lies in its ability to go beyond just wireless email which allows us to address far more complex mobile strategies within organizations without the need of other third party software.”

The extensive support for mobilizing corporate applications, comprehensive mobile device management functions, robust mobile security, and extensive language support defines Nokia Intellisync Mobile Suite 8.0 as a comprehensive and uncompromised mobility platform.

“As a leading provider of enterprise collaboration solutions, IBM is dedicated to working with our industry leading business partners to deliver added value to customers,” said Ken Bisconti, vice president Lotus software, IBM. “The new release of Nokia’s Intellisync middleware offering is an exciting development for the mobile industry and will help our customers extend their existing Lotus Domino capabilities to mobile devices.”

“Novell GroupWise provides unique value based on its ability to run on multiple enterprise systems,” said Kent Erickson, vice president and general manager of Workgroup Solutions for Novell. “Nokia Intellisync technology has been integrated into our platform for some time now and has been instrumental in enabling us to deliver on our commitment to provide real-time collaboration choices. This gives our customers the flexibility and the opportunity to select mobile devices that work best for them.”

“The business requirement for mobility varies widely from one company to another, often varying within the same organization,” Scott Cooper continued. “Mobilizing business is not just about devices or networks or particular applications - rather, it requires an entire flexible ecosystem that we believe will be implemented in a phased approach. Nokia Intellisync Mobile Suite is developed with this in mind and we are positive that with the right mobile strategy and our mobileware, companies will drive new revenues, enable new business processes and gain strategic and competitive advantage.”

Nokia Intellisync Mobile Suite can be purchased from select carriers and accredited resellers and is available today.

3GSM World Congress 2007 Barcelona, Spain/Espoo, Finland/Munich, Germany - At the 3GSM World Congress 2007 in Barcelona, Nokia and Siemens will join together to present the future Nokia Siemens Networks.  Nokia Siemens Networks will be a world leader in telecommunications, with strong positions in the fastest-growing market segments and regions.  Driven by a desire to connect the world, the new company will have an unparalleled capability to deliver ‘end-to-end’ convergent solutions based on a broad portfolio of fixed and mobile infrastructure products, services and devices.  The planned merger to create Nokia Siemens Networks is expected to close in the first quarter 2007.

“Nokia Siemens Networks will be ideally positioned to help our customers capture opportunities that will arise as the connected community swells to around five billion by 2015.  In 2015, we will live in a broadband-IP world, in which five billion people in practice will be ‘always on’, connected to the Internet, rich content, services and of course each other,” said Simon Beresford-Wylie, designated Chief Executive Officer for the future Nokia Siemens Networks. “While Nokia Siemens Networks will have the scale to compete, we know that is just a starting point.  As the world of telecommunications changes, we will also create customer value through innovation, speed and deep end-user insight.”

Nokia Siemens Networks will have a particular focus on the following areas:

·  Business transformation and helping customers find and capture opportunities in the fast-changing market.

·  Utilizing the deep understanding the company will have in all areas of IP-centric convergence to identify and support new business opportunities for communication providers.

·  Working closely with customers on issues of environmental responsibility, including lowering power consumption and reducing the weight and size of products.

·  Bringing a full end-to-end expertise to help customers maximize investments and provide seamless experiences for end users.

“With the creation of Nokia Siemens Networks, we have the opportunity to build the right company to meet the needs of our customers today and well into the future,” said Christoph Caselitz, designated Chief Market Operations Officer for the future Nokia Siemens Networks. “We start from a strong position, with most of the top 100 operators as our customers, and a passion to help them address the challenges of a changing industry.  The Nokia Siemens Networks brand that we are launching today reflects that passion.”

The new Nokia Siemens Networks brand, launched at 3GSM, is based on the belief that the future of the communications industry lies in understanding and uniting communities. It reflects the dynamic nature of the industry and the innovative attitude of the new company. The brand is a symbol of movement and renewal and of the future company’s desire to have a spirit that is pioneering, passionate and pragmatic.

“As we head to a world where we believe that five billion people will be constantly connected, we need to have a deeply rooted innovation culture at Nokia Siemens Networks - and we will,” said Mika Vehviläinen, designated Chief Operating Officer for the future Nokia Siemens Networks.  “Across all of our business units, we will focus both on today’s needs as well as bringing the future of networks to life.”  Nokia Siemens Networks will have six business units:  Radio Access, Service Core and Applications, Operations Support Systems, Broadband Access, IP Networking and Transport, and Services.

Nokia and Siemens are presenting their key solutions and applications at the 3GSM World Congress 2007 in Barcelona in Hall 8, and in a show truck in front of Hall 8.

Nokia Siemens Networks is a planned new company into which Nokia and Siemens intend to merge the Networks Business Group of Nokia and the carrier related operations of Siemens. The planned merger to create Nokia Siemens Networks is expected to close in the first quarter 2007.

The convergence of fixed and mobile communications is spawning new services that are transforming the way people live, work and play.  Nokia Siemens Networks will be one of the companies at the forefront of this transformation, working to enable exciting services for everyone, anywhere, anytime.

At 3GSM, representatives of the future Nokia Siemens Networks will give hands-on demonstrations of today’s most compelling solutions for increasing personal enjoyment and productivity.  Visitors to the Nokia Siemens Networks stand can experience for themselves a wide variety of music and video Personal Infotainment services, including:

·  Mobile TV, using both broadcast (DVB-H) and unicast media-on-demand technologies to deliver TV programming to mobile devices.

·  IPTV, which makes it easy for consumers to enjoy IP-based real-time home entertainment and communication services, including integrated video telephony and video sharing based on the IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) and Service Delivery Framework (SDF).

·  Multimedia Broadcast Multicast Service (MBMS), showing a more efficient future for services such as podcasting and TV streaming using cellular access and mobile devices.

·  Music solution providing a piracy-proof online boutique for music downloading, streaming and ring-back tones, available regardless of access method used.

Visitors to the stand can also learn how Rich Communication can generate true value for communities through personalized services.  End-to-end Rich Communication services combine sophisticated multimedia communication with “presence” and “availability” info to boost revenue growth and customer loyalty for service providers.  The two companies are also illustrating the role of developer programs in stimulating the growth of this market.

Because the business community forms a high ARPU (average revenue per user) customer segment, operators can boost their bottom line by offering hosted services targeted at corporate power users.  At 3GSM, Nokia and Siemens will be showing Enterprise Communications solutions - including operator-hosted solutions — that are made to order for cost-conscience enterprises looking to use mobile communications to optimize their business processes.  Among the solutions on display are:

·  Converged enterprise services, including voice call continuity over IMS.

·  Valued added services for fieldworkers, including intelligent SMS text messaging (iSMS) and Push to talk over Cellular (PoC).

·  An operator hosted business communication solution for access-agnostic PBX services.

Representatives of the future Nokia Siemens Networks will also be showing the key technology building blocks behind these revenue-generating services.  Visitors can see demos of best-of-breed broadband solutions that meet the growing demand for data on the move, as well as network & resource control and transport solutions that significantly drive down operational costs.  Among the “technology champions” on display are:

·  High capacity multi-radio base stations, optimizing and reducing the number of required sites.

·  HSUPA, making true mobile broadband a reality.

·  Long Term Evolution (LTE), spotlighting the migration of networks beyond 3G.

·  Indoor radio coverage, bringing mobile broadband indoors.

·  End-to-end mobile WiMAX, a viable option for building cost-efficient data overlay networks for operators without a WCDMA 3G license or those who want to migrate their CDMA network.

·  “Flat architecture” HSPA, the latest evolutionary step towards LTE employing a simplified network design to deliver high data rates at lower costs.

·  Intelligent peer-to-peer traffic control, essential for making the most of Web 2.0 opportunities while maintaining quality of service for delay-sensitive services such as VoIP and Mobile TV.

·  Service Delivery Framework to streamline the pre-integration of best-of-breed solutions in networks, reducing time-to-market and increasing time-in-market.

·  Operation Support Systems (OSS), which can help manage the complexity of fixed, mobile or converged networks, but also generate new revenue streams, for example, by applying network usage data to create a service for providing real-time highway traffic information.

·  Next Gen Metro and Carrier Ethernet platforms to increase the mobile backhaul capacity that is crucial for network performance and the future needs of high-bandwidth mobile applications.

Representatives of the future Nokia Siemens Networks will also be showcasing opportunities for evolving both mobile and fixed networks towards a converged network offering.  Visitors can see how operators can modernize their networks to meet consumers’ and enterprises’ needs by using a customer centric approach to billing, charging and care services, and by deploying evolved access technologies — such as a system to translate ATM, TDM and IP protocols to Carrier Ethernet, as well as a broadband solutions that use VDSL2 to stream HDTV to TVs or to cost-effectively provide alternative access to the core network over Carrier Ethernet.

All this and more can be experienced at the Nokia Siemens Networks stand in Hall 8 at 3GSM.

The planned merger to create Nokia Siemens Networks is expected to close in the first quarter of 2007, subject to previously announced closing conditions.

Nokia and 3GIS extend their managed services and 3G network equipment contract in Sweden

The Nokia deployment is complemented with Siemens SDH microwave radios

Espoo, Finland - Nokia and Swedish mobile operator 3G Infrastructure Services AB (3GIS), a joint venture between Telenor and Hi3G, have extended their managed services contract. The renewal of the contract enables 3GIS to gain cost savings and a possibility to focus on the main areas of their expertise, while Nokia can further advance the development of its operational processes, tools, skills and competencies.

In providing managed and support services, Nokia takes full responsibility for alarm monitoring, performance and configuration management, preventive maintenance, site and line maintenance, spare part management, emergency and help desk services, and software maintenance allowing 3GIS to concentrate on its clients. The network will continue to be supported by the multivendor, multitechnology Nokia NetAct(TM) network and service management system, including Nokia NetAct(TM) Traffica and Service Quality Manager.

In addition to the managed services contract extension, Nokia has been awarded a contract for capacity upgrade of the 3GIS transport network. The Nokia Transport solution complimented with Siemens SDH microwave radios will in a cost-efficient way make the 3GIS network ready to handle future mobile broadband services. Nokia supplies the Siemens microwave radios under a reseller arrangement.

“3GIS and Nokia have together developed a highly effective mode of operation that allows successful cooperation and management of one of the largest 3G networks in the world,” says Magnus Zetterberg, Chief Executive Officer, 3GIS. “It is great to have a reliable supplier who can provide us solutions and operations that enable significant cost savings and allow us to focus on other areas.”

“The combination of Nokia and Siemens products and services are well suited to handling the complex demands that operators are facing today, and thus allowing them to focus on strategic business improvements,” says Mika Vehviläinen, Designated Chief Operating Officer for the future Nokia Siemens Networks. “Supported by Nokia Managed Services and a reseller agreement on Siemens SDH microwave radios, our transport solution was well positioned to offer 3GIS the best solution for increasing network capacity cost-efficiently.”

Nokia has been working with 3GIS since 2001, supplying WCDMA 3G radio and core networks, and related services as the operator’s sole network supplier.

Nokia to expand its 3G radio access network sharing solution for up to four operators

3GSM World Congress 2007 Barcelona, Spain/Espoo, Finland - Nokia will expand its 3G radio access multi-operator solution to enable the sharing of a radio access network (RAN) between as many as four operators. By sharing the base station and radio network controller hardware, the operators can significantly minimize the capital and operational expenditures of their 3G RAN networks and yet maintain control of their network.

Nokia’s enhanced multi-operator RAN sharing solution for three to four operators will be available with Nokia Flexi WCDMA and UltraSite WCDMA base stations in the second half of 2007. The multi-operator RAN feature is implemented with a software upgrade to the radio network controller and is compatible with any core network.

A leader in network sharing, Nokia is the only network vendor who has references globally for shared commercial WCDMA networks between two operators. “We have already several years of experience with RAN sharing between two operators. This unique Nokia solution will now allow network sharing between three or even four operators and give additional opportunities to significantly reduce the costs of WCDMA rollout and operation, enabling over 40% savings in initial RAN network investments,” says Ari Lehtoranta, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Radio Networks, Nokia.

The Nokia radio access network sharing solution is supported by a common Operation Support Systems solution for the shared network as well as a comprehensive service offering.

The S60 platform and the Vodafone specific software offer an integrated reference implementation that enables Vodafone to roll out innovative new services to customers across a range of different handsets without having to develop a range of different software designs. Samsung and Nokia are expected to be the first handset vendors to ship devices incorporating this software in 2007.

“Vodafone’s customers will benefit as we are able to get our services out faster and more cost-effectively on a wide range of devices from several handset brands. Handset vendors will benefit from saving development costs while maintaining the ability to differentiate on additional functionality and industrial design,” said Jens Schulte-Bockum, Vodafone’s Global Director of Terminals.

I’m very proud to introduce SGH-i520, which will be our first model built on S60 with all of the latest multimedia features and high speed data connectivity (HSDPA). It is very exciting to lead the trend towards open mobile software platforms with these leading brands. Starting with i520, we will introduce further enhanced lineup based on S60 with Samsung’s differentiated multimedia features,” said Chul-hwan Lee, Senior Vice President of Mobile R&D Team, Samsung Electronics. Samsung’s SGH-i520 will be available to Vodafone customers during the first quarter of this year.

“S60 software plays a key role in delivering our vision on connected multimedia experiences. Nokia N95 multimedia computer is a quantum leap in this development. Nokia N95 based on S60 software allows consumers to enrich their mobile experiences with a multitude of add-on services and applications. The collaboration between S60 and Vodafone ensures that Vodafone services will work seamlessly on this iconic product without any penalty on time to market,” said Juha Putkiranta, Senior Vice President, Multimedia Computer, Nokia.

“S60 accelerates innovation creating a great mobile experience. Open platforms offer the broadest device portfolio, customization and service portfolio to operators. Vodafone is leading the way and tapping into the world’s largest mobile developer community with S60,” said Tero Ojanperä, Chief Technology Officer, Nokia.

The collaboration between Vodafone, S60 and selected handset vendors also covers joint marketing activities aimed at Vodafone’s customers.

According to Canalys research (January, 2007), S60 is the clear leader in converged device software with 54% market share globally in Q4 2006.

Run on Nokia’s mapping and navigation application smart2go

Espoo, Finland - Nokia announced that its smart2go mapping and navigation platform has been downloaded around 30.000 times during the first two days of being made available. The application is a free download that enables people to use the most comprehensive map coverage offered on a mobile device. The downloadable application was held back three days so that Nokia could make sure that the first experience with the application, even in its beta form, was a positive experience. Now the beta application can be downloaded from two locations; www.smart2go.com and www.nokia.com\maps.

“We regret that we had to disappoint even one person, but holding back the beta application a few days let us make sure that most people received a very good first impression of the application itself,” said Ralph Eric Kunz, vice-president, Nokia, Multimedia. “We were very thrilled to see the demand for the product over the weekend, and after seeing the number of downloads for just the PC map loader, decided that we needed to put more capacity when we launched the actual mobile application.”

The application allows people to view where they are on a map, search for points-of-interests (POI) around them and create routes to get them there free of charge. Smart2go allows for mapping and routing in over 150 countries and with an additional purchase has support for full turn-by-turn satellite navigation in over 30 countries.  Nokia is offering the smart2go application for free for select Nokia S60 and Windows Mobile 5.0 devices initially and has plans to roll out support for most of the major mobile OS platforms including Nokia S60, Series 40, PocketPC, Linux and other Windows Mobile devices. Nokia Maps may also be downloaded at www.nokia.com\maps.

About the “smart2go” mapping and routing application

smart2go is new: the software turns mobile computers, smartphones and PDAs into local mapping and routing engines with a navigation option, providing worldwide mapping free of charge. In so doing, the unique hybrid solution combines the advantages of on-board and off-board navigation. Maps and location-aware content only need to be loaded once - they are then always available on the client.  As smart2go will carry the application name “Nokia Maps” across many future Nokia devices, it will also be available for a diversity of other operating systems such as Windows Mobile 5 and Linux, in the future.

Nokia balances workforce to better meet changing business demands and dynamics

Espoo, Finland - The communications industry is undergoing a transformation, driven by convergence, increased complexity, and strong growth in emerging markets and segments. Nokia is committed to continuously renewing itself and improving its operations to meet the demands these developments present.

Accordingly, the company is now taking proactive steps to improve the focus and efficiency of some of its R&D and related sales and marketing activities and internal IT operations, and plans to adjust its workforce within these functions to reflect business needs and the geographical shift in business growth. Over the course of the next few months, the company estimates that a maximum of 700 employees globally, approximately 340 of them in Finland, will be affected by these adjustments.

Wherever possible, Nokia aims to redeploy impacted employees into new positions within the company, and also plans to introduce voluntary arrangements for employees. Where applicable, Nokia will start the consultation process with employee representatives about the planned changes.

“We have a number of positions open in Nokia, and the impacted people are naturally priority candidates for positions that match their competencies,” said Juha Äkräs, Senior Vice President, Nokia Human Resources. “We have a good track record from previous years of redeploying employees in similar situations.” In 2006, close to 10 000 people rotated into new positions across the Nokia group.

The adjustments mainly affect Nokia’s Enterprise Solutions business group, Nokia’s IT organization and part of the Software Platforms activities in Nokia’s Technology Platforms unit.

Nokia’s Enterprise Solutions plans to sharpen its focus on markets where there is greater return on investment, which will strengthen the business group’s ability to compete effectively. It is estimated that globally approximately 360 employees in Enterprise Solutions and 30 employees in Customer and Market Operations will be affected by these changes.

In Nokia’s IT organization, there is an adjustment need affecting 130 employees globally. This reflects the continuous drive for an effective operating model within the IT organisation, with a clear focus being placed on areas of greatest value and competitive advantage to Nokia’s business.

Nokia is also reviewing the Software Platforms activities in its Technology Platforms unit and planning actions to improve focus and efficiency in R&D. It is estimated that these plans will impact approximately 140 positions.

Rendez-vous in Paris: Nokia 7373 Special Edition meets Giambattista Valli

 

Fashion phone with exclusive accessories to be unveiled at Paris Fashion Week

Espoo, Finland - Drawing upon the accolades of its highly regarded L'Amour Collection, Nokia has joined creative forces with talented fashion designer Giambattista Valli to craft the Nokia 7373 Special Edition. For this one-of-a-kind cooperation between a thriving creator of new designs and the pioneer in mobile fashion accessories, Nokia returns to the style capital of Paris during Fashion Week. Here the efforts to fuse fashion with mobility began in 1999 with the introduction of the Nokia 8210.

“I was intrigued by the inspiration to define the mobile phone as a fashion accessory,” explains Giambattista Valli. “Like a dress, shoes and jewelry, the Nokia 7373 Special Edition phones follow the theme of my collection and I immediately imagined them as silhouettes dressed in my work. Depending on your mood, you swap bags and transfer the contents. Amazing to see how Nokia has applied this idea to the world of mobility. Just swap SIM cards from one mobile phone to another to match your personal style.”

A true fashion phone, the Nokia 7373 Special Edition combines the splendor of the L'Amour Collection and the trendsetting talent of Giambattista Valli. The Nokia 7373 Special Edition comes in two contemporary colors, both enticingly paired with signature Giambattista Valli phone accessories. The Nokia 7373 Special Edition Powder Pink marries the faded luxury of grand architecture of the L'Amour Collection with Valli's iconic pearl necklace for a strap and a miniature pink skull. This unique set is Valli's interpretation of the contradictory elements of an intensive romance. The Nokia 7373 Special Edition Black Chrome fuses its elegant glossy black appearance with an en vogue gros grain and onyx-like crystal strap. A black skull adds the finishing touches to a sensually appealing display of fashion.

For style-conscious consumers, the Nokia 7373 Special Edition resembles a beautifully designed invitation into the world of catwalks and glamour. The Nokia 7373 Special Edition grants its owner an exclusive glimpse into the world of Giambattista Valli. Each handset comes pre-loaded with a “backstage pass” - a “behind the scenes” video - setting the mood for a glance into the life and inspiration of Giambattista Valli. The footage is complemented by a selection of matching Valli wallpapers, graphics and the exclusive ringtone “Rhodium”, available only on the Nokia 7373 Special Edition.

The Nokia 7373 Special Edition will be unveiled during Paris Fashion Week at the “Dress your Nokia in Giambattista Valli” party.

With an estimated retail price of EUR 280 excluding taxes and subsidies the Nokia 7373 Special Edition will be available in select European markets during March 2007.

United States International Trade Commission orders stay of Qualcomm's suit against Nokia

Espoo, Finland - Nokia announced today that the Administrative Law Judge overseeing the investigation initiated by Qualcomm against Nokia in the United States International Trade Commission (ITC) has ordered a stay of the proceedings until further notice.  The trial had been scheduled to begin on March 5, 2007. 

On June 9, 2006 Qualcomm filed a complaint with the ITC requesting an investigation into the alleged infringement by Nokia's GSM products of six Qualcomm patents.  The ITC subsequently initiated an investigation on July 10, 2006.

Nokia is confident that it has not infringed any Qualcomm patents that are at issue in this investigation.  Additionally, since Qualcomm filed its complaint, it has voluntarily withdrawn three of the six patents from the suit.  The remaining three are all from the same patent family. Nokia believes the patent withdrawal reflects on the weakness of Qualcomm's case.

If the case is not dismissed before the stay is lifted Nokia welcomes the opportunity to prove that the claims regarding the three remaining patents have no more merit than those Qualcomm has already voluntarily withdrawn.

Nokia is a leading innovator in the wireless space and has built one of the strongest and broadest intellectual property portfolios in the industry, with over 11,000 patent families. Since the early 1990's Nokia has invested approximately €30 billion in research and development.
