Nokia Messaging, now Available With Windows(TM) Live Hotmail(R)

March 31, 2009

ESPOO, Finland, April 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Windows(TM) Live
Hotmail(R), one of the world’s most popular web-based email solutions, is now
available on Nokia Messaging, the service that enables people to access their
personal email on their Nokia (NYSE: NOK) devices*. In May, Nokia Messaging
will also be supported by the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia’s first
mass-market touchscreen device, adding to the tens of millions of popular
Nokia devices in the hands of consumers that already support the service.

Nokia Messaging is currently free to download and set-up, and supports
the world’s most popular email accounts – Windows Live Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail,
Gmail, AOL Mail – and accounts from thousands of other email providers. Easy
to use, it enables access of up to 10 personal email accounts on a Nokia
device, and through one single icon. Once Nokia Messaging is set-up, email
accounts can be added to the service directly on the phone, as well as via
the Nokia Messaging website (http://email.nokia.com).

With the addition of the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia Messaging will be
available on 20 different device models worldwide, including the recently
announced Nokia E75 which is the first device to come preloaded with Nokia
Messaging, Nokia E71 – the world’s slimmest qwerty device, Nokia E63, Nokia
E66 and Nokia N79**. More Nokia device models, including the Nokia E55, Nokia
N97 and Nokia N86 8MP, will support Nokia Messaging when they begin shipping.

“We’ve come to understand that a key barrier for mass email adoption is
not the lack of features, but the usability. Nokia Messaging was designed for
ease of use and mobility. While offering people a full feature set, Nokia
Messaging still minimizes user actions and simplifies the complex, such as
eliminating the need to know technical information. This reduces confusion
and the amount of time taken to set up and start using the service on the
phone. By prioritizing common actions and needs, we bring the most relevant
and frequently used actions upfront,” said Atif Hussein, Vice President,
Products, Nokia Messaging. “With Nokia Messaging on the Nokia 5800
XpressMusic, we bring the service to people no matter what their input
preference – touch, qwerty or monoblock.”

* To begin using Windows Live Hotmail, existing users will have to
download the latest Nokia Messaging software. Instructions can be found at
