GSM and WLAN come together as Nokia introduces UMA-enabled Nokia 6136 handset
Nokia is introducing the Nokia 6136 phone, integrating UMA (Unlicensed Mobile Access) technology to allow for seamless handover of voice and data connections between GSM cellular and WLAN networks.

With the UMA technology found on the Nokia 6136, operators can deliver voice and data services to subscribers over WLAN access networks, increasing mobile service availability while decreasing the costs related to network deployment.

Consumers, meanwhile, are able to enjoy the benefits of voice calls via the internet using WLAN radio access. The Nokia 6136 phone is expected to be available during the second quarter of 2006.

To accompany the UMA technology, the fold-style, quadband (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) Nokia 6136 also includes a wide array of the latest features. The 1.3 megapixel camera with 8x digital zoom provides crisp, clear images and video that can be easily messaged or uploaded to an online photo album for sharing with friends and family.

The phone supports removable microSD memory card allowing for optional storage for a wide selection of favourite images or extensive number of digital music files for the integrated digital music player. A built-in stereo FM radio supporting Visual Radio complements the music experience.

The compact and lightweight Nokia 6136 phone features dual color displays, including a large 262k color active matrix main display, an integrated handsfree speakerphone and multiple messaging capabilities, including MMS, email, push to talk and Nokia Xpress audio messaging. The Nokia 6136 phone also delivers excellent operating times in both GSM and UMA modes, with up to 5 hours of talk time and up to 280 hours of standby time in GSM mode and up to 5.5 hours of talk time and up to 82 hours of standby time in UMA mode.

The Nokia 6136 also includes a new DARP (Downlink Advanced Receiver Performance) radio receiver, which enhances the radio performance of the device. Studies from 3GPP have indicated that DARP increases the operator network capacity by 40-70 per cent. For consumers, DARP brings improved voice quality and higher data throughput.

Orange will be an initial customer for the Nokia 6136 phone.
