Nokia partners with Videotron and Petro-Canada to deliver Nokia's thinnest handset to Canadians



    Ultra-sleek and feature-packed, the Nokia 2630 mobile phone helps
    consumers connect and share with friends and family

    TORONTO, March 27 /CNW/ - Nokia today announced the Canadian launch of
the Nokia 2630 mobile phone. Available through Videotron and Petro Canada, the
Nokia 2630 handset is designed with form and function in mind and packs style,
connectivity, personalization, and entertainment into an ultra-thin and
compact design.
    At a mere 9.9 mm thick, the Nokia 2630 is the thinnest handset in Nokia's
portfolio and balances a modern design with a full range of features to meet
Canadian consumers' needs. An easy-to-use camera, combined with Bluetooth
technology, gives users a number of options when it comes to communicating and
sharing their experiences.
    "The Nokia 2630 phone offers Canadians a feature-packed, yet easy-to-use
handset," said Dave Bergeron, Director New Channel Development, Nokia Canada.
"By way of Videotron and Petro-Canada, and through the handset's features and
functions, like a camera and Bluetooth technology, we are making connecting
fun by enabling consumers to reach their friends faster and share their
experiences on the go."

    Easy-to-use camera

    Featuring a VGA camera with 4x digital zoom and a dedicated side-mounted
camera key, the Nokia 2630 lets users snap their favourite moments. Whether
it's taking a picture of friends and family at a special occasion or shooting
a 2-minute video of the highlights from a sporting event or concert, the
handset makes it quick and easy to capture special moments.

    Bluetooth

    The Bluetooth connectivity makes hands-free calling simple when paired
with a Bluetooth headset, like the Nokia BH-101 or BH-208. The technology also
lets users easily send, store and print photos and share MP3 ringtones and
wallpapers with friends.
    Developed with great design, value, functionality and fun in mind, the
Nokia 2630 also incorporates Nokia's marketing leading voice-quality and
reliability and gives users access to a variety of additional features
including:

    
    -   Quick content downloads and data transfer capabilities to quickly
        download wallpapers, themes and ringtones and transfer and
        synchronize data with Nokia PC Suite
