Forum Nokia Partners with Turkcell, Telenor Playground
Earlier this month Forum Nokia became the preferred partner for mobile developer communities and mobile operators throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). Working with Turkcell, the leading mobile operator in Turkey and the third biggest GSM operator in Europe (by number of subscribers), Forum Nokia helped in the creation and launch of the company's application marketplace for Turkcell's more than 35 million subscribers. The application marketplace launched at CeBit EurAsia in Istanbul, the biggest event for consumer electronics in the region. This arrangement will provide valuable exposure to many developers working with Forum Nokia. More than 100 mobile applications from Forum Nokia developers were deployed to the portal at the time of the launch, and more are in the pipeline for public distribution. The available applications cover a broad range of needs, from enterprise-based tools to productivity enhancers and other utilities. There are even categories for hobbies, health, travel, and religion.
Forum Nokia has also agreed to promote applications and services in Playground, the application portal for Telenor Group, which provides mobile communications services to more than 150 million subscribers in 12 countries in Europe and Asia. Telenor Group uses the Playground portal to select and deploy new applications and services in its markets.
