Considering that, we see the cooperation with Schibsted Telecom as an important step in the right direction”, says Daniel Friis, Business Development Manager in Nokia Mobile Phones Scandinavia.

The mobile content services will be launched continuously together with the release of new terminals by Nokia. In addition to development of new content services, the long term agreement also includes cooperation in distribution and marketing.
