New Nokia Phones First with Color Displays and Java Technology for TDMA Customers

(January 14, 2003) - Nokia recently announced the world's first TDMA handsets with full-color displays. With features such as Java capability, custom color wallpapers, MIDI ring tunes and two-way text messaging with e-mail support, the color-screen Nokia 3560 and 3520 phones allow TDMA operators to offer many of today's most-wanted features on their existing networks. Shipments are expected to begin during the second quarter of 2003.

With support for MIDP 1.0 Java technology, the dual-mode Nokia 3520 phone (TDMA 800MHz/AMPS) and the tri-mode Nokia 3560 phone (TDMA 800MHz/1900MHz/AMPS) allow users to customize their phones by downloading new applications, such as games or productivity applications, to their phones using the built-in WAP 2.0 mobile Internet browser. Nokia 3520 and 3560 phone owners can also use the mobile Internet browser to further customize their handsets by downloading new multi-channel MIDI polyphonic ring tunes to personalize their call alerts and SMS notification sounds.
