T-Mobile and Nokia team up to deliver Mobile Services and Personal Social Networks

T-Mobile, Nokia Logos T-Mobile and Nokia have announced their association for accelerating the availability of new Internet services and personal social communities on mobile devices. With this collaboration, European customers will be able to access all of T-Mobile’s web’n’walk Internet services and Nokia’s Ovi Internet services on various Nokia phones more easily and faster than ever before.

T-Mobile’s web’n’walk offers an instant and customizable access to users’ most preferred Internet and messaging services.

Also, the T-Mobile and Nokia team intends to enhance T-Mobile’s community-oriented MyFaves service, launched in October 2007 in Europe, empowered by the well-known Nokia user experience. Moreover, for T-Mobile customers Nokia will customize its devices with a dedicated suite of T-Mobile services. Also T-Mobile’s customers in Europe can take advantage of Nokia’s Internet services such as music, maps and games, through their Nokia device.

“We are pleased about developing our long-lasting and successful cooperation with Nokia, which underlines our position as an innovation leader,” said Christopher Schläffer, Group Product and Innovation Officer at Deutsche Telekom.

“High-performance devices and our broadband mobile phone network are ideally suited for granting easy access to our T-Mobile Services like MyFaves, web’n’walk or Nokia-complementary service offerings (e.g. Maps or Games), providing our customers with an even wider range of mobile communication, information and entertainment services,” he continued.

Anssi Vanjoki, Executive Vice President, Markets, Nokia said, “We are excited about further extending our good cooperation with T-Mobile by supporting them in their key propositions like My Faves and web’n’walk, and we see this as a perfect match with our Ovi services. Easy access to a wide variety of services will enhance the way people use their mobile devices and bring Web 2.0 experiences to life. We believe in providing consumers with choice regarding which Internet services they want to access from their mobile device.”
