Telefonica Spain and Nokia Spain Sign an Agreement to Introduce Nokia Messaging

April 9, 2009

MADRID, April 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Nokia Spain (NYSE: NOK) and
Telefonica Spain have signed an agreement to introduce the Nokia Messaging
push email service in Spain. Telefonica Spain will be among the first
operators to bring this solution to market, continuing its investment in the
development of mobile internet in Spain.

Nokia Messaging simplifies the mobilization of email. This new solution
allows the easy access and use of multiple email accounts, by simplifying the
process and removing complex steps. Push technology ensures the quick
delivery of emails directly to the mobile phone. Nokia Messaging is
compatible with thousands of Internet service providers (ISPs), like with
terra.es and telefonica.net. The service allows users to set-up, access and
use personal inboxes in a quick and easy way. The service will be provided
via a flat and affordable rate for Telefonica customers.

“With this service, Nokia and Telefonica aim to respond to the growing
consumer demand to be able to access their email accounts directly on the
Nokia device whenever they want, wherever they want. In Spain, there are more
than 15 million active personal email accounts, so there is tremendous
potential for the number of users that can leverage this service. The
objective is to bring mobile email to the masses and make it accessible to
the largest number of users possible,” said Marieta del Rivero, General
Manager, Nokia Iberia.

Nokia Messaging allows users to choose from a wide range of Nokia S60
devices. Telefonica customers can continue to use their preferred Nokia
device and launch Nokia Messaging through an easy set-up process. In addition
to ISP email accounts, Nokia Messaging also mobilizes the world’s most
popular webmail accounts, including Yahoo! Mail, Windows Live Hotmail and
Gmail. With Nokia Messaging, consumers can access up to 10 personal email
accounts on one device.
