ESPOO, Finland -- Nokia has signed a contract with Polish operator Polkomtel, which operates under the brand name Plus GSM, to supply the Nokia solution for multimedia messaging. The system brings next-generation multimedia-based services to Plus GSM's mobile subscribers. With these new multimedia messaging services (MMS), mobile subscribers are able to send exciting new content directly from their MMS phone to another MMS phone or to e-mail. MMS is the next evolutionary step after text messaging (SMS), making it a familiar and easy-to-use service for subscribers. In addition to the text content of SMS, multimedia messages can contain images, graphics, voice, and audio clips. Under the agreement, Nokia has supplied its multimedia messaging solution, including the Nokia Multimedia Messaging Service Center and Nokia Multimedia Terminal Gateway servers. In addition, Nokia has provided implementation and integration services and the Nokia KeyCareTM Package, which maintains the competitiveness of the MMS solution. "A commercial launch was made during the last week of June and includes the possibility of e-mail interworking and receiving messages through a web page for subscribers who do not yet have MMS-enabled handsets," says Robert Krawczyk, Board Member and Director of Marketing and Sales at Plus GSM. "Our customers are able to compose and send media-rich messages to one another, and will soon be able to choose to have value-added messaging content delivered to their mobile devices. Plus GSM believes the greater functionality of MMS will be the starting point of a broader customer experience that will pave the way for 3G usage." Nokia Corp.
