Nokia Provides Muscle Behind NTT DoCoMo Data Storage Service


Nokia Intellisync SyncML Server Enables Backup, Restore, and Online Address Management Services for Users of DoCoMo 902is Series Phones

June 27, 2006, New York, NY, USA - Nokia today announced that NTT DoCoMo, Inc. in Japan is using Nokia’s Intellisync SyncML Server to power a new data storage service for customers purchasing the DoCoMo 902is Series or any other 3G phone after that. The new service allows customers to back up, edit and restore their phone address book, emails and pictures online.

The Data Security Service(TM) makes life easier for NTT DoCoMo subscribers by protecting their valuable phone contact information and other content through online backup. Using Nokia’s Intellisync SyncML Server technology and their personal computer, subscribers can access their existing data, images, and contact information via a secure Web site, and then easily update, add to, or backup that information on their phone over the air. Because all the information can be stored online as well as on their phone, users who choose the service can be assured that their phone contact data, emails or pictures will be protected if their handset is lost or broken.

The new service is the result of more than a year of collaboration between the companies in creating a prototype and refining the service to provide a superior user experience. Using Nokia’s Intellisync application program interface (API), systems integrator NTT DATA and NEC developed a seamless user interface and experience, and integrated the solution into the NTT DoCoMo i-mode(TM) Server, which provides the heart of the service.

Masanari Arai, vice president, Japan Operations, Enterprise Solutions, Nokia says: “This is a great example of Nokia’s ability to connect practically any device over almost any network to most applications or data sources, and we’re excited to be able to help DoCoMo deliver this for their customers.”

NTT DoCoMo will include the Data Security Service(TM) with all new 902is phone purchases beginning in June 2006, and all new 3G devices after that. The service is optional and is charged at 100 Yen per user per month.
