Nokia’s MVNO service with NTT DoCoMo named ‘Vertu Club’ – Japan

The MVNO agreement announced earlier between Nokia and NTT DoCoMo will actually be signed between NTT DoCoMo and Vertu, Nokia’s luxury handset division. The new MVNO will be called Vertu Club, with services available on a premium membership basis. In this regard, the first Japanese Vertu store, called Ginza Flagship Store, will become operational in Tokyo from February 19, 2009. However, the services of Vertu Club will become available to customers from the second quarter of 2009. In the meantime, customers can purchase unlocked handsets such as Vertu Ascent Ti, Vertu Ascent Ti Ferrari and Vertu Signature from the Ginza Flagship Store.
