The Nokia T20 marks an important milestone for HMD Global with the very first tablet, according to HMD Global Australia and New Zealand country manager, James Robinson.
“Over the past two years in Australia, we’ve experienced an increase in working from home, online learning and the growing use of social media, video calling platforms and streaming services. This has contributed to a significant uplift in demand for tablets, with 3.4 million sold in 2020, a 12% increase on the previous year, according to Telsyte research,” he said.
“The Nokia T20 is a tablet that has been designed specifically to reflect and address the changing needs and desire for versatile technology that Australians have become accustomed to. We believe this device serves the needs of busy families, as well as providing businesses an affordable yet power business tool with Zero Touch deployment.”
The Nokia T20 in Ocean Blue (4GB/64GB variant) is now available for RRP $349.
HMD Global has also introduced the Nokia G50, the most affordable 5G device in the Nokia range joining the G series line-up. Featuring the signature Finnish design quality Nokia is known for, the 6.82-inch HD+ display provides an exceptional viewing experience.
Launching with Android 12, welcoming Google’s latest OS advancements, the Nokia G50 also offers an extra two years of OS upgrades and monthly security updates for at least three years. This is supported by a two-day battery life and three-year warranty.
HMD Global has partnered with Spotify and ExpressVPN giving Nokia G50 owners access to 70 million tracks and 2.6 million podcasts from Spotify out of the box, and offering added reassurance against malware with a 30-day free trial of ExpressVPN.
“As 5G develops and becomes more accessible to more Australians, HMD Global expands choice of our trusted Nokia 5G range, making 5G more accessible to more Australians,” Robinson said.
“We believe that Australians should be able to keep their devices for longer; as such, the Nokia G50 comes with our hallmark commitments to OS upgrades, security patching, and an Australian first – three-year manufacturer’s warranty.”
The Nokia G50 in Ocean Blue and Midnight Sun (4GB/128GB variant) is now available for RRP $499 via Nokia online and retailers including JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman, Officeworks and Amazon.
