October 27, 2009

BEIJING, October 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Nokia (NYSE: NOK) today
announced the Nokia 6788, its first device for TD-SCDMA – China’s domestic 3G
standard, at an event in Beijing. The Nokia 6788 is the result of close
collaboration between Nokia and the world’s largest mobile phone operator,
China Mobile.

Speaking at the event, said Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo, CEO of Nokia: “Nokia
sees TD-SCDMA as being central to the successful evolution of 3G in China,
and so is fully committed to this 3G standard. With a wide range of
integrated China Mobile applications, the Nokia 6788 marks a new level of
collaboration with China Mobile and offers enriched experiences to China’s 3G
users. Nokia plans to introduce more TD-SCDMA phones in the near future,
further boosting the development of this 3G standard in China.”

“We are excited to see the launch of Nokia 6788,” said Mr. Lu Xiangdong,
Vice President of China Mobile Communications Corporation. “With extensive
experience in the China market, Nokia will provide Chinese consumers with
TD-SCDMA solutions that are perfectly catered to their needs. Such
cooperation between the world’s largest operator and the world’s leading
mobile phone manufacturer will provide an important boost to the development
of TD-SCDMA in China.”

The Nokia 6788 is specifically designed for China Mobile’s network and
offers rich data services. It is an all-in-one device that provides its users
with faster Internet speeds and download times. Featuring a 5-megapixel (2592
x1944) camera with a dual-LED flash, a 2.8″ QVGA display, and the
hugely-successful Symbian S60 platform, the Nokia 6788 allows people to
instantly share the things that matter to them most.

Inspired by traditional Chinese furniture and architecture, the Nokia
6788 incorporates Chinese design elements including traditional Chinese
patterns on the back of the slide and the battery cover. The Nokia 6788 is
expected to become available at the end of December 2009.


TD-SCDMA (time division synchronous code division multiple access) is a
3G mobile telephone standard developed by the China Academy of
Telecommunications Technology (CATT).

TD-SCDMA combines support for both circuit-switched data, such as speech
or video, and packet-switched data from the Internet. The standard combines
time division multiple access (TDMA) with an adaptive, synchronous-mode code
division multiple access (CDMA) component.
