Join In! the Expanding Nokia Community

The Nokia 7510 is the latest addition to the growing portfolio of devices
available from T-Mobile USA. Building on the successful XpressMusic range of
devices sold at T-Mobile, the Nokia 7510 gives consumers an added level of
customization, style and function. This colorful device allows consumers to
personalize their device with an external display that stays
‘hidden-until-lit’. The display utilizes LED lights to illuminate a new
message, incoming call or while playing music, an artist and song title. This
new flip phone is built on the Series 40 platform, acclaimed for superior
ease of use, and comes with a push-to-open side key, enabling it to be opened
with the press of a button as well as several colorful Xpress-On Covers to
help consumers accessorize their device with their lives.

Further cementing Nokia’s commitment to the North American CDMA market,
Nokia also introduced the Nokia 1006 – the latest CDMA device for AWS
carriers, developed in Nokia’s San Diego product creation center.
Ergonomically designed for on-the-go convenience, the Nokia 1006 is curved to
comfortably fit a user’s face and hand, with a large, bright color display,
and includes features like voice memo, speakerphone and a phonebook capable
of holding 500 entries. The sleek device will be available in blue and silver.

Building on the extensive portfolio of devices in North America, Nokia is
introducing the Nokia E63 at CES 2009. The North American variant of the
Nokia E63 will be optimized for the US market; designed for people who need
to manage their business and personal lives equally well. Building on the
success of the Nokia E71, the company’s flagship messaging device, the Nokia
E63 brings the QWERTY keyboard form factor to a broader audience at a great
price. Engaging with your social networks is a breeze with the Nokia E63 -
thanks to a large, bright 2.6 inch QVGA screen for web browsing and full
QWERTY keyboard for easy updating and typing. The Nokia E63 is expected to
begin shipping in North America in the first quarter of 2009.

To complement some of our newest mobile devices, Nokia is also
introducing the Nokia Bluetooth Headset BH-904. The Nokia Bluetooth Headset
BH-904 is capable of separating a user’s voice from ambient noise, ensuring
good speech quality in noisy environments such as in the car, on public
transportation or in busy public places such as restaurants. It has the
ability to maintain two active connections between the headset and another
device at the same time. So a user can simultaneously connect for example to
a PC (for VOIP) and to a compatible mobile device. The Nokia Bluetooth
Headset BH-904 also offers up to five hours of talk time after only 15
minutes of charging. Additional information about the new Nokia Bluetooth
Headset BH-904 can be found athttp:// www.nokia.com/bh-904.

The Power of “We”

Nokia has long been a recognized leader in driving responsible
environmental practices, and at CES 2009, the company is announcing its role
as worldwide sponsor of Giant Screen Films’ newest IMAX(R) production, Wild
Ocean – a spectacular underwater adventure that showcases the power of people
coming together to protect the environment that sustains them.

The film, directed and written by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas,
the Academy Award-nominated creators of the stage sensation STOMP!,
chronicles a massive annual migration, following billions of sardines up
South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal shoreline. CES attendees are invited to stop by

“Nokia continues to be at the forefront of driving ‘green thinking’ and
helping consumers make environmentally intelligent choices. We strive to
educate consumers on options for recycling their old mobile phones, and at
CES 2009 we will demonstrate the new Nokia Carbon Calculator – a mobile
application that encourages users of devices, such as the new Nokia 6650 with
AT&T, to offset the carbon footprint of their travels,” said David Conrad,
head of Environment, Nokia North America. “In addition to our green
initiatives, education is also playing an important role, and our sponsorship
of the film Wild Ocean is just another way in which we hope to educate the
world that if we each do our part, we as a community can make a difference,
making the planet a cleaner, greener and better place to live.”
