Nokia New Year’s Eve celebrates the start of 2007 in global style

World’s largest New Year’s Eve celebration draws more than 2 million music lovers to 5 “party capitals” of the world; more than 150 million viewers tune into global TV and Internet broadcast

www.nokianewyearseve.com features on demand performances by The Black Eyed Peas, Scissor Sisters, Nelly Furtado, John Legend, Sugababes, Atomic Kitten, Ludacris, Rihanna, KT Tunstall, Sergio Mendes, among others

Espoo, Finland - On December 31st, Nokia New Year’s Eve delivered on its promise to connect millions of people around the world through five spectacular events being held as part of the biggest New Year’s party of 2006. Five party capitals — Hong Kong, Mumbai, Berlin, Rio and New York — all played their part to celebrate the beginning of 2007. Those in attendance at the live show, or watching the global broadcast on television or online saw some of the biggest names in music celebrating a truly unforgettable night.

Nokia New Year’s Eve began at Hong Kong’s Ocean Terminal with Atomic Kitten topping the bill and making their first international appearance since splitting in 2004. They performed hits such as Whole Again and Tide Is High after an impressive roster of local stars including DJ Jamaster A, Eason Chan, Grasshopper, Hacken Lee, Joey Yung, Josie Ho, Jun Kung, Paul Wong, Soler and Twins entertained the crowd throughout the evening. Despite the massive Internet challenges created by the recent earthquake in Taiwan, Hong Kong music fans were also able to stream the live concert footage directly to their mobile thanks to a select group of local operators.

Moving west, Mumbai’s Andheri Stadium played host to a star-studded celebration that featured performances by Grammy Award-winning Nelly Furtado, Indian music maestro A.R. Rahman, and Bollywood superstars Priyanka Chopra, Shahid Kapoor, Koena Mitra, among others. Furtado, a Canadian performing in India for the first time, captivated the crowd by singing two Hindi ballads, Kabhi Kabhi and Yeh Sama, in addition to her international hits Powerless, Maneater and I Am Like A Bird. Nokia New Year’s Eve also marked the public debut of the first English language composition by Indian musical legend A.R. Rahman - Pray For Me, Brother - an anthem dedicated toward the eradication of world poverty. As the clock closed on midnight, Rahman, also known as the “Mozart from Madras”, got the crowd into the party spirit with his all-time hit Humma Humma as well as his Oscar-nominated single Khalbali.

“Thank you Nokia for making this happen. I have wanted to come to India all my life,” said Nelly Furtado after the show. “The crowd was amazing and it was so much fun to perform on the same bill as so many talented Indian artists.”

Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate was the largest Nokia New Year’s Eve celebration with an estimated 1.2 million party-goers in attendance. In front of this massive audience, headline act Scissor Sisters played their hit singles I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’ and Comfortably Numb in a ninety-minute set that wowed the audience before a spectacular 10-minute pyrotechnics display erupted at midnight. Sugababes then took to the stage to carry on the party well in to the night.

“This will be the biggest audience we’ve ever played to so we were really excited! We love coming to Berlin simply because nobody parties harder and longer than the Berliners,” said Ana Matronic from Scissor Sisters before they took the stage. “After the show we plan on having an excessively fun and ridiculous evening which we hope will set the tone for the rest of 2007! Happy New Year everyone!”

In Rio, Brazilians showed that a bit of rain would not stand in the way of an amazing night. More than one million people celebrated Nokia New Year’s Eve in a nine hour concert on Ipanema beach. The crowd was treated to unforgettable performances by the Black Eyed Peas, John Legend and Brazilian music legend Sérgio Mendes as well as local artists Funk’n Lata and DJ Marlboro, amongst others.

The Black Eyed Peas played all of their hits including Where Is The Love? and Pump It as well as an unforgettable collaboration with Sérgio Mendes for the hit song Mas que Nada. Sergio Mendes was making his first Brazilian live performance for 28 years and treated the crowd to a host of hits from his country’s musical history.  Speaking after the show, Mendes said “This was a night of magic. Sharing my music with the Brazilian audience was emotional and unforgettable. This was without a doubt one of the happiest days in my life”.

The night rounded off in New York with performances from Rihanna, Ludacris and KT Tunstall appearing in “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve 2007”.

Each event offered more than just the very best in live music. Nokia also offered music lovers several innovative ways to use their mobile phones, including the opportunity to send in messages (and a few marriage proposals!) that were displayed on screens around each stage throughout the night. Party-goers could also send messages to the other Nokia New Year’s Eve cities as well as use the bluetooth “beam-zones” on site to receive a host of free content including wallpapers, links, gig guides, ringtones and artist content.

Estimated Total Television and Internet Audience of 150 Million

Those unable to watch their favorite artists in person were able to view performances from the five Nokia New Year’s Eve events via a global television broadcast, as well as online at www.nokianewyearseve.com. An additional global television program of musical highlights will be broadcast on January 1. To orchestrate this enormous global celebration, Nokia enlisted the services of Harvey Goldsmith CBE, the producer of Live Aid and Live8. The estimated total television and Internet audience is expected to be more than 150 million.

With more than 2 million music lovers celebrating with us in person, and more than 150 million television and Internet viewers, Nokia New Year’s Eve was certainly the biggest New Year’s party of 2006,” said Jo Harlow, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Nokia. “Nokia New Year’s Eve clearly lived up to our mission of “Connecting People” and delivered on our promise of leveraging the power of television, the internet, live events and the world’s most exciting music artists to get people talking, sharing and celebrating on one incredible night. Our thanks to the artists who performed -- and the millions of people who celebrated with us in person and around the world.”

Press photos, artist info and other press information from each Nokia New Year’s Eve celebration is available at: www.nokia.com/press/nye. For access to broadcast footage containing highlights from all locations, an APTN global satellite feed is available at 12.15GMT on January 1.

Sprint Nextel and Nokia in WiMAX pact

Reston, VA, USA and Espoo, Finland - Sprint Nextel (NYSE: S) today announced that Nokia has been named a key infrastructure and consumer electronic device provider for its 4G WiMAX next generation mobility network. Nokia joins Intel, Samsung and Motorola in creating the advanced network infrastructure and access devices which will be designed to allow consumers, businesses and governments to experience high bandwidth mobile Internet connectivity at access speeds significantly higher than today’s wireless networks beginning late 2007.

 

Sprint Nextel last August announced the selection of WiMAX (IEEE802.16e-2005) technology for a next generation wireless network which would utilize the company’s extensive 2.5GHz spectrum assets, and formation of a unique business ecosystem designed to spur widespread adoption of WiMAX devices and services. This combination creates a time-to-market advantage for implementing the first large scale mobile WiMAX network expected to cover at least 100 million people by year-end 2008.

The strategic relationship with Nokia involves network infrastructure, mobile device and market development commitments. Under the agreement Nokia will:

 

·  Be a major supplier to Sprint for WiMAX network infrastructure, including the market-leading Nokia Flexi WiMAX base transceiver stations which bring significant site and operating cost savings,

·  Develop and market WiMAX-enabled mobile devices in significant volumes, including multimedia computers and Internet tablets,

·  Jointly develop mobility services and applications to improve the customer experience, and

·  Conduct co-marketing efforts to drive market development and support global adoption to help establish worldwide roaming.

 

“Nokia shares Sprint Nextel’s mobile broadband vision and is proud to join its industry-leading WiMAX ecosystem,” said Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, President and CEO, Nokia Corp. “WiMAX is an ideal technology for open Internet models in all major global markets. With Sprint’s leadership, the next generation network will offer innovative mobile broadband services, connecting people with content and technology in new and exciting ways.”

 

Sprint Nextel is expecting to invest up to $800 million in 2007 and between $1.5 billion and $2 billion in 2008 relating to the 4G WiMAX mobile broadband network. Sprint Nextel’s goal is to have a broad range of mobile WiMAX-enabled chipsets and modules and an array of portable data, multimedia and consumer electronics devices available from multiple vendors which work seamlessly among Sprint’s network offerings.  As a result, customers will experience an interactive mobile data network that is designed to offer faster speeds, lower cost, greater convenience and enhanced multimedia content.

Beginning today consumers worldwide can download and enjoy Yahoo! Go for Mobile 2.0 on select Nokia devices including the Nokia 6103, Nokia 6131 and Nokia 5300 Xpress Music phones. In the first half of 2007, the companies will also make Yahoo! Go for Mobile 2.0 available for a wider range of devices and pre-load it onto millions of new Series 40 devices.

“The availability of Yahoo!

This will allow more people to become part of the new generation of mobile Internet users, and to drive adoption of even more powerful devices in the future.”

Nokia and Yahoo! have worked together since April 2005 to give consumers the optimal Internet experience on their mobile devices.  As a result, millions of Nokia mobile device owners are able to easily use Yahoo!’s innovative services to stay informed, entertained and in touch with their Internet community.  The companies have expanded their relationship several times since then to include a wide range of Yahoo!’s services across the majority of Nokia’s mobile devices.

Nokia 6131 NFC phone taps into mobile payment, ticketing and local sharing

NFC-enabled Nokia 6131 NFC handset can “touch to connect” to a wide range of services

Las Vegas, USA - Today at the 40th annual Consumer Electronics Show, attendees are displaying credentials to enter the show floor where they are busy swapping business cards, collecting product brochures and buying coffee to keep going through the endless rows of company exhibits. Simultaneously, Nokia (NYSE: NOK) is announcing the world’s first fully integrated, commercial NFC handset, the Nokia 6131 NFC phone, which will soon allow all of these activities and more to be performed with the simple tap of a phone.

Featuring the same slim folding lines and outstanding features, the Nokia 6131 NFC handset includes Near Field Communications (NFC) technology to enable information sharing, service initiation and payment & ticketing capability with one tap of the device. Used in much the same way as existing contactless cards and keytags to allow access and make small payments, the addition of NFC technology to a full featured mobile device adds an entirely new level of capability by leveraging the phone’s computing power, wireless Internet access and user interface.

“At CES there are dozens of potential use cases for the Nokia 6131 NFC phone. Instead of carrying a badge for entry, a tap of my phone could authorize my admittance to the exhibition, access to product information could be achieved by touching my phone on a product display, making carrying brochures around the show floor obsolete, and instead of heading to the ATM machine on a daily basis, coffee, sodas and hot dogs could be purchased using an NFC-enabled phone,” said Juha Kokkonen, director of Mobile Experiences for Nokia’s Mobile Phones business. “In a trade show environment like CES, one of my favorite applications is using NFC-enabled business cards. Instead of going home with a pocket full of cards that I have to scan or hand type into my computer, I can simply touch the card, and I have all of the contact information right in my phone.”

Unlike a simple card or keytag, which only allows for one-way communication, an NFC-enabled mobile phone allows users to realize the benefits of a fully interactive experience.  For example, touching an NFC-enabled advertising poster or informational kiosk can automatically link the user to interactive Internet based information, open an audio file, or download new content directly to the handset. Additionally, an extra layer of security is enabled when making contactless payments since the handset can be set to allow payment information only when the user expressly authorizes the transaction via a password, unlike a card or tag, which can be used by whoever has it in their possession.

Along with its NFC features, the Nokia 6131 NFC phone includes an extensive set of today’s most wanted wireless features. A built-in digital music player with microSD card support and FM stereo radio allow customers to enjoy their favorite music on the go. A 1.3 megapixel camera, featuring a dedicated camera button and 8x digital zoom makes it easy to capture and share images. Bluetooth wireless technology enables easy connection to a wide selection of Nokia enhancements and PC’s or even the ability to go handsfree in compatible automobiles.

The Nokia 6131 NFC phone is expected to be available in select markets during the 1st quarter of 2007 for approximately $340 (260 Euros) before taxes and subsidies.

Nokia and Six Apart’s Vox Make Creating and Sharing Content a Snap with Nokia Nseries Multimedia Computers

Video sharing, photo sharing and blog posting directly from your mobile device

Las Vegas, USA - Nokia, the world leader in mobile communications, and Six Apart, the world leader in blogging, today announced cooperation to bring Vox (www.vox.com), a free personal blogging service to the Nokia Nseries multimedia computer product range. The two companies will make it easy for people to upload video and photos, and update their blogs directly from their compatible Nokia Nseries devices to the Vox blogging service. The cooperation is an important step in making Web 2.0 mobile and enabling people to create and share their experiences with friends and family on the go. The Nokia N93i, also announced today, is the first product to include the integrated Vox service.

“Supported by megapixel cameras and high quality video capture, Nokia Nseries multimedia computers have become true life recorders. People want to share their discoveries instantly with friends and family and Vox is a perfect service to share your videos and photos,” said Mikko Pilkama, director of Multimedia Experiences, Nokia. “We want to make sure that Nokia Nseries offers the best possible way for people to participate in Web 2.0 communities when they’re mobile. Nokia and Six Apart are making it easy for people to connect and share their photos, videos and life experiences without being tied to a PC.”

“We’ve always believed that mobile phones will have a huge impact on blogging, and we’re pleased that Nokia shares this vision,” said Six Apart co-founder and president Mena Trott. “People will be able to capture life’s spontaneous moments by video or camera quickly and easily, and share them with friends and family. Together, Nokia and Six Apart are bringing the best on-the-go blogging experience to millions of Nokia Nseries users around the world.”

Vox is a free personal blogging service for sharing experiences with friends and family. Vox’s rich privacy filters give members granular control over who views their stories, photos, videos or audio. Members can easily set any of five levels of privacy on any piece of content they share on Vox.

Vox offers rich media integration, including the ability to insert video, photos and web content into posts by connecting with popular web services people already use such as Amazon.com, YouTube, Flickr, Photobucket, iStockphoto, and iFilm. Generous storage - two gigabytes total uploads per month and three gigabytes for Nokia Nseries users - assures members that they never have to worry about deleting an important memory.

Doing all this from a Nokia Nseries device is easy. After registering with Vox (www.vox.com/nokia) and setting up account information in the device, Vox members are able to upload videos and full size photos to Vox directly from the camera or Image Gallery application*. The first device shipping with Vox settings will be the Nokia N93i, and existing users of Nokia Nseries multimedia computers can download the settings file from www.vox.com/nokia for the following models: Nokia N70 Music Edition, N72, N73, N73 Music Edition, N80 Internet Edition, N93, N93i, and N95.

In 2006, Nokia sold around 140 million camera phones, making it the world’s largest manufacturer of digital cameras. The most important camera that you can have is the one that is with you when you need to capture a moment you want to preserve. Having a connected camera in your pocket provides a unique ability to instantly capture and share your experiences without having to transfer pictures to a computer.

Unleash your story in video with the Nokia N93i

Nokia N93i is about easy capturing, reliving and sharing of memories and experiences regardless of time or place

Las Vegas, USA - Nokia today introduced the Nokia N93i, a compact and stylish digital camcorder and multimedia computer in one. Boasting a host of advanced features - from DVD-like quality video capture to direct video uploads - the Nokia N93i enables you to record great quality video wherever and whenever you feel inspired.

“With devices such as the Nokia N93i, we believe that video can become a similar kind of mass market phenomenon as mobile photography has become,” said Satu Ehrnrooth, head of Nokia Nseries Cameras Category, Multimedia, Nokia. “The slim and beautiful Nokia N93i is the ideal device for user-created video content, as it is a connected digital camcorder that is always with you. You can even instantly upload video clips in their original size directly from the device to online blogs or video communities. With the Nokia N93i, sharing your stories is now as easy as recording and viewing them.”

Life. Camera. Action.

You can shoot DVD-like quality videos with the Nokia N93i thanks to its MPEG-4 VGA video capture at up to 30 frames per second, stereo audio recording and digital stabilization. The Nokia N93i also boasts a 3.2 megapixel (2048 x 1536 pixels) camera with Carl Zeiss optics, 3x optical zoom, autofocus and close-up mode. With the 1 GB miniSD card included in the standard Nokia N93i sales pack, you can capture up to 45 minutes of DVD-like quality video or up to 1250 high-quality photos.

Shooting is now more stylish.  And more simple.

With its slim and compact design, the Nokia N93i is now even easier to slip into your pocket. It also has a new metallic finish keymat and a mirror effect cover. The 2.4” main display of up to 16 million colors has a 160° viewing angle, the easy-to-use joystick provides smooth video control and there are dedicated camera keys to capture images, switch shooting mode and operate the flash quickly and easily.

Every story needs an audience. Find yours online.

Nokia Shares Vision of Convergence with New Internet Collaborations, New Products at CES 2007

Las Vegas, USA - Nokia President and CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo will share the company’s vision of how simplifying and converging mobility and the Internet with connected multimedia devices is making it possible to create, consume and share our experiences when and where we want.

Speaking at the 2007 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Mr. Kallasvuo said “Mobility will be at the core of how the Internet evolves, where people can have access to the people, content and information they want from wherever they are. In emerging markets, we see that more people are accessing the Internet for the first time via their mobile device rather than on a PC and we aim to be at the forefront of making that happen.”

“Single purpose devices are becoming less attractive,” continued Mr. Kallasvuo. “And the converged devices taking their place are increasingly powerful and easy to use.” Reaching 90 million units in 2006 and expected to reach 250 million units in 2008, the market for converged devices is the fastest growing segment of consumer electronics. In this market, Nokia is the world’s largest manufacturer, selling close to 40 million converged devices in 2006.

“Nokia brings the value added of mobility and connectivity to convergence - enabling people to take their content and Internet services with them,” said Mr. Kallasvuo. He also shared his excitement regarding Nokia’s cooperation with Sprint Nextel in bringing WiMaX and open internet based services and mobile devices to the pockets of US consumers in 2008.

Mr. Kallasvuo highlighted Nokia’s market strength and consumer base. “More than 850 million people have a Nokia mobile phone in their hands. No other consumer electronics company in the world has ever had such a customer base.” In 2006, Nokia was the world’s largest camera manufacturer with approximately 140 million cameras sold as well as close to 70 million music enabled devices, making Nokia the world’s largest manufacturer of music devices as well.

Speaking to the importance of usability and product design, Mr. Kallasvuo showcased the Nokia N76 multimedia computer, an ultraslim combination of premium materials and technology. “Ultimately, convergence has to mean convenience with little compromise. With the Nokia N76, we’ve been able to offer people a beautifully designed product that outperforms the competition while being easy to use,” he explained.

Mr. Kallasvuo will announce agreements with leading Internet companies, helping them to take their brands and content mobile. Nokia announced integrated support for Vox, a free personal blogging service from Six Apart, with the newly announced Nokia N93i multimedia computer. Nokia and Skype announced a collaboration to develop a new mobile Skype experience on the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet. Nokia and Yahoo! announced the availability of Yahoo! Go services, including address book synchronization, mobile voice instant messaging, automatic photo uploading and Yahoo! Mail support for Nokia’s broad range of Series 40 based mobile phones.

In addition, Mr. Kallasvuo presented the Nokia N800 Internet Tablet and the Nokia 6131 NFC handset which integrates Near Field Communications (NFC) technology to enable information sharing, service initiation and payment & ticketing capability, all activated with just one tap of the device.

More than 750 Companies Join Nokia for Business Channel Program to Deliver Business Mobility

Multiple technology tracks selected by more than 40 percent of participants

White Plains, NY, USA - Nokia (NYSE:NOK), a world leader in mobile communications, announced today that more than 750 mobility, business voice and security companies worldwide have joined the Nokia for Business Channel Program since its introduction just three months ago. Representing the industry’s most complete ecosystem for delivering open mobility solutions to businesses, this multichannel distribution network is key to serving business customers through both operator and IT channels - the preferred and trusted channel of businesses.

“Enterprise mobility is clearly the next wave of IT investment for many businesses, but evaluating the benefits of various mobility solutions and selecting the best strategy can be a challenge,” said John Mason, vice president of global channels and operators for the enterprise solutions division of Nokia. “Businesses of all sizes are turning to experts they can trust for help in implementing holistic solutions that bring real business value. By providing our channel partners with in-depth training and financial support, we can accelerate and simplify the deployment of mobility solutions for business customers so they can realize the benefits of a truly mobile organization.”

“By bringing together an ecosystem of companies, Nokia is helping to lead the industry to the next phase of business mobility,” said Yankee Group Vice President, Enterprise Applications and Mobile Solutions, Eugene Signorini. “Through the Nokia for Business Channel Program, Nokia is empowering resellers to meet the needs of business customers, tapping into the growth opportunity of enterprise mobility.”

Expanding expertise with multi-track participation

The Nokia for Business Channel Program is designed to give channel partners the opportunity, resources and financial support to leverage their core expertise while also broadening their skills to include additional Nokia for Business solutions. Indeed, both new and existing partners are attracted to the growth potential of business mobility and are naturally looking to partner with Nokia, the worldwide leader in mobile communications. Among the more than 750 participating companies, more than 40 percent are enrolled in two or more technology tracks, indicating a desire to offer complete mobility solutions. Many, like U.S.-based FishNet Security, were participants of the previous Nokia channel program and have now opted to expand their expertise and maximize their business opportunity.

“FishNet Security has been a partner of Nokia for many years, and we are excited about the changes in the new Nokia for Business Channel Program,” said Gary Fish, CEO, FishNet Security. “It affords us the opportunity to leverage our organization’s national security reach, to provide best-of-breed security solutions, while also opening up additional products and services to provide to our clients in the area of mobility solutions.”

Partner roster strong worldwide

Nokia for Business Channel Program participants span the globe, giving business customers access to 30,000 technical support experts and more than 50,000 salespeople in more than 140 countries. The program has more than 400 registered channel partners in EMEA, more than 225 in the Americas and more than 125 in Asia-Pacific and Greater China.

Empowering partners with online resources

To support the kick-off of the Nokia for Business Channel Program, which went live January 1, Nokia also launched this month the Nokia for Business Partner Center, a one-stop online portal that provides detailed information so that partners can fine tune their business plans throughout the year. Portions of Partner Center are powered by Salesforce.com, providing partners with a sophisticated, up-to-the-minute dashboard on their program requirements and benefits, including the status of Market Development Funds, customer leads, technical and sales certification, training accreditation levels, and financial benefits. Through Partner Center, accredited partners can also access marketing tools, training, product information and support.

“The Enterprise Solutions division at Nokia is truly leading the industry in building a channel ecosystem for business mobility,” said Marc Benioff, chairman and CEO of Salesforce.com. “The new Partner Center portal is a first, combining the rich functionality of Salesforce.com’s PRM platform with the new Nokia for Business Channel Program, giving partners simple, up-to-the-minute access to the information and sales leads they need to be successful.”

Nokia also launched its Partner Locator, an online tool available at www.nokiaforbusiness.com/partnerlocator , making it easy for end customers to find qualified business mobility channel partners. The tool gives customers access to Nokia for Business Channel Partners’ credentials and contact information based on a geographic search.

The Nokia for Business Channel Program remains open for enrollment. Detailed program information and registration details are available online at www.nokiaforbusiness.com/channel.

Mobile communication is revolutionizing economic and social development in rural India

New Delhi, India - Mobile communication is revolutionizing economic and social life in rural India, spawning a wave of local entrepreneurs and creating greater access to social services according to a new study by The Center for Knowledge Societies (CKS) commissioned by Nokia. The research identifies seven major service sectors including transport, finance and healthcare that could be radically transformed through mobile technologies.

Mobile phone ownership in India is growing rapidly, six million new mobile subscriptions are added each month and one in five Indian’s will own a phone by the end of 2007.  By the end of 2008, three quarters of India’s population will be covered by a mobile network. Many of these new “mobile citizens” live in poorer and more rural areas with scarce infrastructure and facilities, high illiteracy levels, low PC and internet penetration. The study looks at how their new mobility could be used to bridge the growing economic and social digital divide between rural and urban areas.

Veli Sundback, Executive Vice President, Corporate Relations and Responsibility, at Nokia, said, “Mobile phone ownership in India is growing at a phenomenal pace. This new found mobility undoubtedly has the potential to make a major contribution to socio-economic development, and we recognise the responsibility we have to play a key role in achieving this. This report builds on the work Nokia has been doing in developing markets like India for several years to understand how we can deliver on our goal of making universal access to technology and the associated benefits a reality.”

Dr. Aditya Dev Sood, the report author highlights how many new adopters of mobile phones have found their incomes rise, he explained these findings as the increased productivity made possible through mobile communications. “While mobile phones are widely seen merely as a communications medium, they should really be seen as a new and essential form of infrastructure that will transform a host of other service sectors in rural economies around the world,” he said.

The report identifies seven service areas that could be transformed for rural communities by mobile communications.

·              Transport - Finding cost-effective, reliable, and safe ways to transport goods and services to market is a major problem for small businesses in rural communities. Public transport is not available in 45% of villages in India, and only 1% of Indian households own a vehicle.  Mobile communication could be used to create and co-ordinate car sharing schemes amongst villages, and provide real-time information about public transport services and the ability to make request stops.

·              Micro-commerce - Small businesses in rural areas often have to travel significant distances to markets or other places they can distribute their goods, and cannot make arrangements in advance with buyers or other sellers. Mobile phones could significantly change the logistical issues faced by rural traders and home entrepreneurs, by affording mobile-based ordering systems, delivery requests, and the ability to make more reliable and advance arrangements with business partners or clients.

·              Finance - Mobile phones are already being used in rural areas as a tool for financial transactions by swapping airtime for goods and services. The study encourages mobile networks and financial services institutions to work together to test and develop new financial services in this area and address how people can transfer these credits into cash.

·              Healthcare - New mobile services in this area could better connect rural communities, creating networks to share and discuss health information and advice.

·              Governance - Accessing information about public services remains a major challenge for many rural communities. Mobile phones provide a new platform through which rural communities will be able to access government information and services, using text, data, and audio browsing techniques.

·              Education -The study looks at a range of educational services that could be provided via mobiles to children in remote villages and communities, particularly where PCs or connections to the internet are not available. Mobile phones could serve as an essential means for children to become connected to one another for educational and peer-learning activities. These are particularly important for communities that are either nomadic or transitional on account of displacements due to a natural disaster or for other reasons.

·              Infotainment - While the mainstream entertainment industry is already well aware of the emerging potential of mobile media, there are also many opportunities for local, peer-to-peer content to be created and distributed, affording new cultural and economic opportunities to rural communities.

The research is based on detailed ethnography and participant observation among communities living in three rural areas of India - Badaun in the state of Uttar Pradesh, Satara in the state of Maharashtra and Chittradurga in the state of Karnataka - as well as one urban area, Bangalore. Researchers meet with small business owners, farmers, home owners and others to understand how mobile communication has already transformed their daily lives and the further potential of mobile communications to enhance livelihoods.

The study encourages national and international governments, the mobile industry and NGOs to work together to support the development of these services by increasing access to, and use of, mobile communications in rural communities. Recommendations in the report include:-

·              Local and state government needs to integrate their telecom regulatory, tax and rural development policies, and do more to incentivize and support the role out of mobile services across the country.

·              The mobile industry needs to understands the social impact of mobile connectivity in rural communities and make it as accessible as possible to them. This does not only mean lower prices and costs of ownership, to really make a contribution to development they will also need to localise the mobile experience with relevant applications and services. Many of these will be innovated at a grass roots level and it is important for the mobile industry to work at this level to deliver real improvements.

·              Non-governmental organisations have an important role to play in working with state agencies to define the needs of rural communities and together develop new ways to deliver a wide range of different social and welfare services. To do this they also need to work much more closely with the mobile industry to understand and test the technological possibilities.

The report includes 16 case studies of individuals interviewed for the report including small business people, entrepreneurs, home owners, farmers and many others. These case studies explore how mobile phone ownership has impacted their lives and businesses.
