AT&T and Nokia today announced the availability of the Nokia 6555 mobile phone, a new handset that has been engineered to take advantage of AT&T's high speed 3G network and innovative wireless services.

A unique "smoothback" design, which eliminates the sharp edge found at the hinge of most conventional folding phones, makes the Nokia 6555 phone both remarkably comfortable to hold and strikingly beautiful to behold.

Exclusively available in the U.S. from AT&T, the Nokia 6555 makes it easier than ever to quickly access powerful AT&T services via dedicated function keys. By pressing the CV key, Nokia 6555 users can immediately access AT&T's streaming video content service, which includes local weather forecasts, the latest in sports and entertainment and broadcasts from leading cable news outlets - all displayed on a crisp 16 million color QVGA screen. The dedicated AT&T MEdia Net key provides an immediate connection to the best Internet content, ranging from financial news and sports scores to movie times and reviews or the latest ringtones and mobile games.

"The Nokia 6555 represents a stylish and simple way for our customers to access and enjoy video, messaging, music and more," said Carlton Hill, vice president of Voice Products and Devices for AT&T's wireless unit. "We are pleased to have worked with Nokia to launch yet another great product on AT&T's 3G network."

Music fans will have access to the AT&T Mobile Music portfolio of services, including subscription services from Napster and eMusic, music videos, MusicID song recognition, "The Buzz" music news portal, XM Radio Mobile and more. The included music player and MicroSD card slot lets owners store and enjoy thousands of digital music tracks on an optional 2GB MicroSD memory card.

"The unique smoothback design of the Nokia 6555 will appeal to the design-conscious consumer while the high speed 3G capability will satisfy the needs of those looking for powerful wireless technology," said Ian Laing, vice president of Sales for Nokia. "The Nokia 6555 is a direct result of our collaboration with AT&T to develop a compelling product specifically for their customers. It marks the latest chapter in our long history of working together to bring innovation and quality to customers."

Staying in contact with friends and family through voice calls, text and photo messages is made easy with included push-to-talk functionality, an integrated instant message client and a built-in 1.3 megapixel camera and video recorder to capture and share special moments. Bluetooth technology makes it convenient to connect to PCs, wireless headsets and speakers, as well as an increasing number of vehicles that come with built-in wireless hands-free capability. The analog clock standby mode adds an additional touch of elegance to the Nokia 6555 phone's design.

The Nokia 6555 will be available in select AT&T retail stores and online beginning September 12 for $49.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and a two-year service agreement.
