NEC revealed new mobile phones "e242" and "e101" to Russia. NEC also reveals its new branding strategy and slogan "Get Personal", which is in line with NEC's global corporate statement "Empowered by Innovation (TM)", to further expand its mobile business in Russia.

Starting with these two new models with three color variation as one of the key products, NEC will pursue its new strategy to enter into the wider-range product market segment to appeal to various consumers in Russia. With the new and specific target market segmentation, NEC will further launch products answering to the requirements from every customer of each segment.

"Get Personal" is a new slogan to help NEC increase its awareness in the mobile terminals arena and build brand loyalty in Russia. We are aiming to position the company as the most creative, leading mobile solutions company. Varieties of mobile terminals are being introduced for the global market this year. This new slogan will be a dynamic step towards strengthening NEC's presence in the Russian mobile market, and is also in line with the strategic move to expand NEC's mobile business globally." said Hiromi Orikasa, General Manager of Mobile Terminals Marketing & Sales Division, NEC Corporation.

"Our latest challenge regarding current brand perception is to create a unique, human and user-friendly image, showing NEC's deeper level of communication with consumers by defining ourselves as a "people company," which proactively reaches out to customers to gain knowledge about their needs in Russia. Then, customers can acquire not only the latest state-of-the-art technology but also a mobile phone that suits their own lifestyle." said Orikasa.

The new models introduced today are clamshell-shaped e242 & e101. They target a wider range of people, from business to individuals, with friendly, simple and stylish designs.
