Nokia wins top awards at the UK’s Mobile Retailer Awards 2006


Nokia Named Mobile Manufacturer of the Year

July 12, 2006, London, UK and Espoo, Finland - Nokia, the world’s leading mobile handset manufacturer, came out on top at this year’s Mobile Retailer Awards held in London, winning the awards for Manufacturer of the Year and Business Handset of the Year.

The judging panel of industry experts awarded Nokia the coveted title of Manufacturer of the Year as a result of the strides it’s taken to enhance its unrivaled product range in the past 12 months. This included its launch of the Nokia NSeries sub-brand, its entrance into new territories through its music and youth platforms and development of its classic and ESeries handsets.

The panel of industry experts, who awarded Nokia the top prize, highlighted Nokia’s commitment to producing ’good, handsets’ and its ’appetite for innovation’, which they said some rivals appear to lack.

Nokia also received praise for its dedication to mobile trade professionals; including its Academy training programme for dealers, which provides hands-on product training with yet-to-be-released handsets - described by the judging panel as ’the ’finest independent training this industry offers.’

Nokia was also presented with the Business Handset of the Year award for the Nokia 6230i. The Nokia 6230i scooped the prize by offering a business focused product that not only providing functions business users look for - long battery life, ease of use, reliability and car kit compatibility - but also a desirable handset, in design and style.

Commenting on the win Mark Squires, Communications Director of Nokia UK, said: “Everyone at Nokia has worked very hard in the past 12 months to cement our position as the number one manufacturer and to produce a range of handsets which not only appeal across the board, but provide outstanding usability and innovative features. It’s great to receive recognition for this hard work - especially when it originates from our colleagues in the mobile retail industry.”
