In-vehicle communications became easier and more convenient with the availability of the Nokia 810, a car phone with greater hands-free functionality and exceptional audio quality. To reduce distractions, the Nokia 810 car phone features a dash-mounted backlit display, extra-large fonts, expanded voice recognition functions, and intuitive handsfree commands. The Nokia 810 car phone operates on the GSM 900/1800 networks and is now available in selected markets in Europe, Africa and Asia Pacific.

With just a touch of a single Navi(TM) wheel or voice key, users of the Nokia 810 car phone will be able to make voice commands, access contact information and other applications quickly and conveniently. Voice commands can be used to download contacts from a compatible mobile phone with Bluetooth wireless technology. A wireless headset, sold separately, allows the user to conduct calls in private, when necessary. The Nokia 810 car phone also features an external antenna, linked via cable connector, which offers enhanced GSM network coverage.

"Whether in private or company cars, trucks or delivery vans, the Nokia 810 car phone sets new Nokia standards for comfort and ease of use," says Razvan Olosu, General Manager, Nokia Smart Traffic Products, Nokia Mobile Phones.

The display can be mounted in a variety of positions on the dashboard and is equipped with automatic backlighting adjustable for day- or nighttime use.

Additionally, The Nokia 810 car phone has a memory that can be used by two different people using a single SIM card. This personalization is especially convenient for company or family cars that are used by more than one person. Phonebook entries, voice dial and personal settings, such as ringtones can be saved in two separate memories and activated with ease.

The Nokia 810 car phone can be connected via Bluetooth wireless technology or RS 232 data cable to peripheral devices such as compatible laptops or vehicle's on-board systems using high-speed data in HSCSD and GPRS networks.
