I think everybody knows the Nokia tune. It is pre-loaded on millions of phones. Originally it was composed by Francisco Tárrega in the 19th century. However, what about the Nokia mailtone? A non-representative, but meaningful survey made by Nokia shows that the existence of a mailtone is almost unknown. Nokia wants to change it and so they created the site www.nokiamailtone.de. With Nokia Messaging Nokia is bringing e-mails straight on your mobile phone. So, Nokia want you to create the new mailtone. Just take your mobile phone with recording function, go outside, explore sound effects or compose a short sound. The three best will win a device from the current Nokia product portfolio.
1st: Nokia E75
2nd: Nokia E71
3rd: Nokia E63
The weekly five best entries will be published under the heading “Top5”. New, interesting or unusual submissions will be reviewed in the “Your Sounds” section – it’s worth taking a look form time to time. The challenge starts on 20th of May and ends on 5th of June. Head over to submit your sound. Despite the site is all in German you can submit your sounds and win.
