Beijing, China, November 10, 2010 - ST-Ericsson, a world leader in wireless
platforms and semiconductors, and Nokia, the world's leading provider of mobile
devices and solutions are developing pioneering TD-LTE demonstration devices for
China Mobile.

At the Shanghai Expo, Nokia and ST-Ericsson demonstrated video streaming and
other multimedia services on a TD-LTE Nokia Booklet containing ST-Ericsson's
M700 TD-LTE modem. ST-Ericsson's LTE modems, which can download data at speeds
of up to 100 Mbps, enable mobile subscribers to enjoy high-definition video
streaming, video conferencing, online gaming, rapid file transfers and other
demanding multimedia services.

China Mobile is trialing TD-LTE. Globally the technology is referred to as LTE
TDD, which has a wide interest from operators around the world.

"Although LTE is still in its infancy, this sophisticated technology has the
potential to bring a raft of compelling high-speed multimedia services to
hundreds of millions of consumers all over the world," said Heikki Koivu, Vice
President, TD-SCDMA Business Team, Nokia. "Our co-operation with ST-Ericsson
will enable us to demonstrate LTE capable devices and experiences as TD-LTE is
developing towards commercial maturity"

"After driving development of both LTE and TD-based mobile technology for
several years we are now ready to supply market-leading TD-LTE solutions," said
Pascal Langlois, Senior Vice President, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer of ST-
Ericsson. "Our co-operation with Nokia, the world's number one mobile phone
supplier, will strengthen our ability to support mobile operators deploying
