T-Mobile and Nokia plan to collaborate for new Internet services and personal social communities on mobile devices. Under the terms of the agreement, T-Mobile has agreed to support Nokia’s mobile content portal Ovi, and Nokia will customize its handsets for T-Mobile to support the carrier’s web’n’walk Internet services.
The two said in a statement that by “signing this collaboration agreement, T-Mobile and Nokia will be able to offer their European customers faster and easier access to all of T-Mobile’s as well as all to Nokia’s Ovi Internet services on a wide range of Nokia devices.”
The companies also said they also plan to work on developing widgets to provide a richer user experience for customers.
In March, T-Mobile and Nokia announced the exclusive Nokia 6650 device for T-Mobile, which will be available in Europe in July. The two said “this collaboration is the next step in intensifying the good partnership between the companies.”
“We are pleased about developing our long-lasting and successful cooperation with Nokia,” 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.”
