Nokia unveils five new mobile phones

Plans to open Life Tools service in Indonesia in December

By CBR Staff Writer

Nokia has launched five new low-end phones, which will support its Life Tools service that is expected to be available across Indonesia in December 2009.

The Nokia 1280, Nokia 1616 and Nokia 1800, priced at €20, €24 and €26, respectively (before taxes and subsidies), support FM radio, prepaid tracker, flashlight, anti-scratch cover and dust-resistant keymat, among other features. These come with a long battery life, with up to 22 days of standby time.

The Nokia 2220 slide and the Nokia 2690, priced at €45 and €54, respectively (before taxes and subsidies), also support email on the device through Ovi Mail. Ovi Mail accounts can be created on the device and people can start sending and receiving emails. Other device features include FM radio, VGA camera, GPRS and MMS support, phone books for up to 1,000 contacts, and Bluetooth. Standby times for the Nokia 2220 slide and Nokia 2690 are about 20 days and 13 days, respectively, the company said.

Nokia Life Tools gives consumers in small towns and rural areas the ability to get a range of livelihood and life- improvement services on their mobile phones. Consumers will be able to subscribe to Agriculture, Education and Entertainment information and content.

Nokia Life Tools services use an icon-based, graphically rich user interface that comes complete with tables and which displays information simultaneously in two languages.

Dieter May, vice president, emerging markets, Nokia, said: Following the successful launch of Nokia Life Tools in India, where people are getting the benefits of vital information sent directly to their mobile phones, we are pleased to bring this service to consumers in Indonesia. Inform, Involve, Empower – the vision of Nokia Life Tools – applies no matter where it’s implemented. With the number of devices that Nokia Life Tools supports, we are giving people the solution that suits them the most.

The first of the five new mobile phones will begin shipping before the end of 2009, with others expected to start shipping in the first half of 2010.
