The uniquely-designed Nokia 7610 phone will entice mobile-savvy and
style-conscious consumers with its innovative array of features which they will
enjoy. Printing is a breeze for users of the Nokia 7610 imaging device -
pictures can be turned into prints via a Bluetooth connection or MultiMediaCard
to a compatible printer or by using a printer kiosk available in Nokia branded
retail locations or other photo shops. Using the Print@Kodak application on the
phone, pictures can be uploaded to an online photo album for sharing with others
or ordering prints.* The Nokia 7610 phone offers a 65,000 colour 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, a
self-timer, and a night mode to capture images in low-light conditions.

“Digital imaging has developed in ways that were unimaginable since 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,” said Mauro Montanaro,
Vice President, Sales & Channel Management, Nokia Multimedia Asia Pacific. “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.”

Designed for the trendsetters, the Nokia 7610 users can do more than simply
sharing pictures with friends and family – they 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 colours 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 which will be available soon for the Nokia 7610 is
the Nokia Lifeblog – an application which adds an automatic digital diary to the
pockets of trendsetters. The phone application 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 Starter Edition 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, RealOne mobile player with MP3/AAC music playback, True Tone and
48-polyphonic ringing tone support, HTML Internet browser, 72MB of expandable
memory (8MB + 64MB reduced-size MultiMediaCard), USB, Bluetooth connectivity and
support for JavaTM technology. The slim 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, users can customize their
Nokia 7610 imaging phones with add-on applications.
