GUANGZHOU, CHINA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/05/12 -- Nokia and China Mobile today announced the
Lumia 920T, the first TD-SCDMA Windows Phone in China. With advanced
location services, photography innovation, and fast mobile browsing on
China Mobile's 3G network, the Lumia 920T offers Chinese consumers the most
innovative smartphone experience.



"We are delighted to partner with China Mobile, the world's largest
operator, to
introduce China's first Lumia based on Windows Phone 8. People around the
world
are responding positively to the new Lumia devices, and we're confident
that the
enthusiasm will extend to China with the Lumia 920T," said Stephen Elop,
President and CEO of Nokia.



"Our close cooperation with Nokia is a key contributor to the success of
China's
TD industry, and will further enhance the rapidly growing TD ecosystem. We
are
excited about this important next step in our partnership, and we look
forward
to creating an even more vibrant TD industry together," said Li Yue,
President
of China Mobile Communications Corporation.





The Lumia 920T uses Pureview's advanced floating lens technology, and takes
in
five times more light than competing smartphones without using a flash.
This
makes it possible for people to capture clear, bright pictures and video
indoors
and at night.



The Lumia 920T also has the world's most sensitive touchscreen, and thanks
to
Nokia's ClearBlack display technology offers better visibility in the
brightest
sunlight. The Lumia 920T also comes with the full suite of Nokia navigation
applications, including Nokia City Lens.



As the largest operator in China, China Mobile will play a significant role
in
bringing the Lumia experience to more Chinese consumers with its expansive
TD
network coverage. Lumia 920T's powerful dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor,
partnered with China Mobile's high-speed 3G network, is set to deliver fast
data
connectivity. In addition to the rich applications available in Nokia's
Marketplace, Lumia 920T users will enjoy the additional benefit of access
to
Mobile Market, China Mobile's application store, offering a large range of
applications and services tailored for Chinese people, and an easy shopping
experience



Strong, Growing Ecosystem



To further drive momentum of China's Windows Phone ecosystem, Nokia and Air
China today announced a strategic partnership which lets consumers enjoy
wireless chargers in Beijing Airport VIP lounges. Furthermore, Jiepang
announced
a service that lets consumers enjoy great deals by simply tapping their
Lumia
920T using NFC in some outlets in Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou.



Nokia demonstrated its commitment to local developers and entrepreneurs by
launching the Nokia Experience & Innovation Center (NEIC), the Academy
Program
and most recently the Booster Program in partnership with the government
and
other companies. These initiatives provide fledgling innovative Internet
developers and entrepreneurs with business advice, technical
support and a low-cost operating environment in which to grow, helping them
turn their ideas into
applications. These programs will also continue to drive and support the
increasing amount of grassroot innovation, further boosting the Windows
Phone
ecosystem in China.



Price and Availability



The Lumia 920T will be available for order by the end of the year. It will
retail at RMB 4599 without contract and come in four colours; black, white,
yellow and red.
