Handle Without Care: Nokia Introduces the Nokia 3720 classic, its Most Rugged Mobile Handset to Date

July 9, 2009

ESPOO, Finland, July 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Nokia (NYSE: NOK) today
introduced the new Nokia 3720 classic, an IP-54 certified mobile phone
designed to resist water, dust and shock. Following the footsteps of Nokia’s
highly popular ‘rugged’ devices of the past, the Nokia 3720 classic is
encased in durable materials and is entirely sealed to protect the inner
electronics. The Nokia 3720 is expected to retail for approximately EUR 125
before subsidies or taxes and is expected to begin shipping this summer.

“Whether using it at the beach or in a dusty construction site, the Nokia
3720 classic has been specifically engineered to withstand the splashes,
bumps and drops that come with the terrain,” said Markku Suomi, vice
president, Connect devices. “While the Nokia 3720 classic is tough on the
outside, it is equally functional on the inside – a perfect choice for people
who want a long-lasting and reliable mobile phone for any environment.”

The Nokia 3720 classic features a sealed, leak-proof design and durable
materials in a range of colours. The battery cover, which protects both the
battery and the internal circuitry of the device, is locked with a screw,
making for worry-free usage in wet, dusty or muddy environments.

As to be expected, the Nokia 3720 classic also offers exceptional battery
performance as well as an LED flashlight, to complement its rugged design.
Additional add-ons include Nokia Maps, which comes pre-loaded on the 1 GB
microSD memory card, and the large and bright 2.2″ display is perfect for
following the route even in unfamiliar terrain.
