April 13, 2010

ESPOO, Finland, April 13, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Nokia (NYSE:
NOK) has announced three new handsets – the Nokia C3, Nokia C6 and Nokia E5 -
designed to put better messaging and social networking tools in the hands of
more people around the world, at affordable prices. These new handsets
feature full QWERTY keyboards, and enable access to a range of different
email accounts, IM communities and social networks.

“Our messaging device range is very successful,” said Anssi Vanjoki,
Nokia’s Head of Markets. “Services that provide easy access to the world’s
consumer and corporate email and instant messaging are really popular on our
QWERTY smartphones such as the Nokia E71 and Nokia E63. People want the best
messaging and social networking experience on an affordable device, whether
it’s sending a simple text or instant message, an email, or a direct message
from their Twitter account. The Nokia C3, Nokia C6 and Nokia E5 are made for
just that.”

The Nokia C3 is the first device to bring a full QWERTY keyboard to the
world’s most popular mobile phone platform – Series 40 – and is the first in
the range to enable access to social networks directly on the homescreen.
People can view, comment, update their status and share pictures to their
favorite social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.

At an estimated price of EUR 90, before taxes and subsidies, the Nokia C3
also comes with Ovi Mail and Ovi Chat, meaning first time users can set up
email and chat accounts straight from the device, without the need for a PC.
Other notable features are the Wi-Fi connectivity, a two megapixel camera,
rich color 2.4 inch screen and support for up to an 8GB memory card. The
Nokia C3 is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2010 in a
variety of appealing colors, including golden white, slate grey and hot pink.

The Nokia C6 is a Symbian-based smartphone combining the benefits of a
3.2 inch touch screen with a full slide out keyboard. The large screen
provides a great Internet experience, as well as offering access to Facebook
feeds directly on the homescreen. A full suite of email and social networking
capabilities means the Nokia C6 is perfect for people who want to stay up to
date while on the go.

Expected to be available in the second quarter of 2010 at an estimated
price of EUR 220, before taxes and subsidies, the Nokia C6 has an impressive
feature set including a high quality five megapixel camera with autofocus and
flash, and Ovi Maps with free walk and drive navigation. In addition,
thousands of apps – from games and videos to news aggregators and web
services – are available in the Ovi Store.

Rounding off the trio is the latest addition to the Nokia Eseries range,
the Nokia E5. Designed for those that want to be productive in both their
professional and personal lives, the Symbian-based Nokia E5 follows the
successful blueprint of devices such as the Nokia E72 and Nokia E63. The
Nokia E5 combines high quality business features with all of the personal
networking and entertainment capabilities that a busy professional expects
from a smartphone.

The Nokia E5 is perfect for managing busy schedules with a variety of
productivity applications available in the Ovi Store. And with direct access
to over 90 percent of the world’s corporate email through Mail for Exchange
and IBM Lotus Notes Traveler, it’s easy to keep in contact from anywhere.

Estimated price of the Nokia E5 is EUR 180, before taxes and subsidies,
with expected availability in the third quarter of 2010.
