New Delhi, Nov 4 (UNI) In its quest to narrow the digital divide, Nokia today unveiled a range of mobile devices and innovative new services.
The new devices, including Classic 2320, 2323 and 2330 and Supernova 7100, are priced at a range from 25 to 90 euros, with several models expected to begin shipping this year. Nokia's suite of Internet services for emerging markets will be available beginning next year.
''In 2002, Nokia unveiled a strategy to lower the cost of owning and operating a mobile phone and to bring the benefits of mobile telephony to people in emerging markets. Today, we are expanding that vision by introducing a number of devices and services that aim to bring the power of the Internet to these markets as well,'' said Robert Andersson, Executive Vice-President, Devices, Nokia, at a news conference here today.
The first services Nokia will offer in emerging markets will focus on email, agriculture and education, which based on consumer feedback, present the strongest demand in emerging markets, he added.
Mail on Ovi, which is enabled on Nokia Series 40 devices, offers the possibility to create an email account directly on the mobile phone without having to use a personal computer, giving millions of users the possibility to create their first Internet identity and communicate in new ways, he explained.
