Nokia E72 in Stores Now

November 16, 2009

ESPOO, Finland, November 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — The
highly-anticipated Nokia E72, a device tailor-made for business and personal
messaging is now available in stores. To coincide with the arrival of the
Nokia E72, Nokia (NYSE: NOK) has also released research* revealing that more
people rely on email than on traditional phone calls or text messaging when
sending and responding to critical information.

Speaking about the research results, Nokia vice president Ukko
Lappalainen said, “The research shows that people are spending an average of
five full days per year – equivalent to a full work week – responding to
emails. Half of us (46 percent) choose email over voice or text to send and
receive important information. The Nokia E72 was designed exactly with this
kind of person in mind – it allows the owner to be more responsive and
communicate how they want, whenever they want and wherever they are.”

The Nokia E72 builds on the formula from Nokia’s most successful full
QWERTY keyboard device, the Nokia E71, and adds important new functionality
such as desktop-like email and chat experiences. Morevoer, the latest version
of Ovi Maps with A-GPS navigation and compass, an optical navi key and 5
megapixel camera are all packed into the sleek, beautifully-designed handset.

The Nokia E72 also comes with Nokia’s push consumer email service, Nokia
Messaging, and now for the first time people can set up instant messaging
(IM) directly from the homescreen, accessing communities such as Windows
Live(TM) Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, Google Talk and Ovi Chat. Just like
chatting via the desktop, people can respond to friends and colleagues across
multiple communities in real-time.

The Nokia E72 can also accommodate multiple work and personal email
accounts and, with separate profiles for work and play, allows people to be
flexible when it comes to choosing how, when, where and who to respond to.
While work emails rank as the most important messages to receive, they are
not necessarily the most urgent messages to respond to. According to Nokia’s
research, half of respondents (49 percent) prioritise their partners ahead of
their bosses or managers (29 percent), colleagues (23 percent) and even
customers (31 percent).

The Nokia responsiveness research was commissioned to examine the various
factors that influence how people respond to various issues and situations.
In addition to the research, an online campaign at
http://www.nokia.com/responsiveness invites people around the world to
respond to various issues and comments from TED Fellows.
