C Technologies subsidiary, Anoto, and Sonera study possibilities for co-operation

C Technologies' subsidiary, Anoto, and Sonera study possibilities for co- operation Anoto and Sonera will together evaluate services with the aim of integrating these into the Sonera product portfolio and offers to subscribers. If the parties enter into a closer co-operation the revenue model will be based on a division of the revenue from the services whereby Anoto is providing the infrastructure together with some basic services and Sonera will investigate the possibility of developing and expanding the services further. "This combination - paper, pen, and mobile services - is a very interesting concept, with very extensive application potential in today's, and in the third generation's, mobile network", says Jari Mielonen, CTO, Sonera. "We are very pleased to be able to study possibilities for co-operation with Sonera, as they are one of the leading operators with a new approach. They are also well positioned to handle those services necessary to make the third generation mobile network a success", says Christer Fåhraeus, CEO, Anoto AB. The initial collaboration is strategically very important for Anoto, as it is the first time an agreement has been entered into with an operator who deals with end customers. Anoto's concept of digital, paper-based services is built on three cornerstones: paper bearing Anoto's pattern, digital pens with Bluetooth communication, and services that are offered to customers through a mobile operator. Anoto has previously initiated a number of joint ventures with partners in the paper and pen field. A collaborative agreement with Ericsson Microsoft Mobile Venture was also published recently. Their MOSOtm platform, intended for operators, will have integrated Anoto functionality.
