Consumers want 'personal, relevant mobile technology'
16 June 2009 — 2:00 PM
Nokia has outlined its vision for the future of the mobile industry at a sector event which recently took place in Singapore.
In addition to announcing three new devices - the E72, 5530 XpressMusic and 3710 Fold - the Finnish manufacturer used the Nokia Connection conference to look at what the latest phones should be aiming to offer.
Opening the event with a keynote speech, the firm's executive vice-president and chief development officer Mary McDowell said it was important for new technologies to address consumer desire for personalised, relevant gadgets.
"To this end, Nokia is driving this transformation both as a company and externally to build a vibrant ecosystem and deliver relevant and delightful solutions to consumers," she added.
Those looking to recycle mobile phones in favour of the latest handset may be interested to hear the eagerly-anticipated Nokia N97 is launched this month - having been unveiled in December last year.
