Sharpen and smarten your image with the new Nokia megapixel phone

Stylish and slim Nokia 7610 combines robust imaging capabilities with
multiple smartphone features

Hanover, Germany - On a makeshift catwalk, Nokia grabbed the
spotlight at CeBIT 2004 with the introduction of the sleek Nokia 7610
imaging device, the company's first megapixel camera phone. Encased in
fashionable dual-tone ruby and onyx-colored covers, the slim and stylish
Nokia 7610 phone offers quick and convenient capturing, printing, storing
and sending of photo-quality images and videos in addition to the benefits
of the Series 60 Platform. The tri-band model is planned to be available
during the second quarter of 2004 in two variants, GSM 900/1800/1900 and
GSM 850/1800/1900. It is expected to retail for approximately €500.

Printing is a breeze for users of the Nokia 7610 imaging device -
pictures can be turned into prints in just a few seconds via a
Bluetooth connection to a compatible printer or by using a printer
kiosk available in Nokia branded retail locations or other photo
shops. Using the Kodak Pictures application on the phone, pictures
can be uploaded to a virtual photo album on the web and shared online with
others or ordered as prints via an online service. The Nokia 7610 phone
offers a 65,000 color screen for viewing still images and video captured
by the integrated camera and watching real-time video streaming using the
built-in RealOne mobile player. The megapixel (1152 X 864) camera features
a high-quality lens, 4x digital zoom, and a self-timer. The Nokia 7610
imaging device also allows users to capture images in low-light

"Digital imaging has developed in ways that were unimaginable when
digital cameras first entered the mainstream only five years ago. In
2003, the number of camera phones sold outnumbered digital cameras.
We are now entering an era where camera phones will become mainstream
imaging devices," says Juha Putkiranta, Nokia's Senior Vice President,
Imaging Business Unit. "With the introduction of the Nokia 7610, Nokia's
first megapixel imaging device, capturing spontaneous print-quality images
no longer requires a separate camera. Your megapixel camera is now always
in your pocket, built into your phone."

The Nokia 7610 is designed specifically for consumers who create
trends, not follow them. More than simply sharing pictures with
friends and family, Nokia 7610 users can create short films or even
music videos of up to 10 minutes by shooting and editing the footage
captured with their imaging device. By using the Movie Director
application, users can, for the first time, turn video clips captured with
their Nokia 7610 into personal movies by adding special effects such as
music, text, new colors or moving objects. The application automatically
combines multiple video clips into a single video vignette or optimizes
the edited videos for MMS sending.

Another innovative concept available for the Nokia 7610 is the Nokia
Lifeblog application, which adds an automatic digital diary to the
pockets of trendsetters. The phone application records and organizes
digital content - such as images, videos or messages - creating a
personal logbook or multimedia memo directly on the phone. When
transferred to Nokia Lifeblog on the PC, people can browse and search
their multimedia diary in an easy to use timeline or share diary items
with friends or family via email. Additionally, the Adobe® Photoshop®
Album software included in the sales package allows Nokia 7610 phone users
to organize and edit digital pictures on their PC's.

The other key features of the Nokia 7610 include rich Multimedia
Messaging, email, and MP3/AAC music player, Internet browser, 72MB of
expandable memory, USB, Bluetooth connectivity and support for Java
technology. The small and sleek 118 gram and 93cc phone offers up to 3
hours talk-time and 250 hours of standby time. With a wide selection of
applications designed for Series 60 based devices, people can customize
their Nokia 7610 imaging phones with the applications they require to be
most creative.
