Note 1 relating to non-IFRS results: Non-IFRS results exclude special items for all periods. In addition, non-IFRS results exclude intangible asset amortization, other purchase price accounting related items and inventory value adjustments arising from i) the formation of Nokia Siemens Networks and ii) all business acquisitions completed after June 30, 2008. More specific information about the exclusions from the non-IFRS results may be found in this press release on pages 3, 15-17 and 19.

Nokia believes that these non-IFRS financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information to both management and investors regarding Nokia's performance by excluding the above-described items that may not be indicative of Nokia's business operating results. These non-IFRS financial measures should not be viewed in isolation or as substitutes to the equivalent IFRS measure(s), but should be used in conjunction with the most directly comparable IFRS measure(s) in the reported results. A reconciliation of the non-IFRS results to our reported results for Q3 2010 and Q3 2009 can be found in the tables on pages 12-13 and 15-19 of this press release. A reconciliation of our Q2 2010 non- IFRS results can be found on pages 11-12 and 14-18 of our Q2 2010 Interim Report of July 22, 2010.

Note 2: Nokia reported net sales were EUR 29 795 million and earnings per share (diluted) were EUR 0.30 for the period from January 1 to September 30, 2010. Further information about the results for the period from January 1 to September 30, 2010 can be found in this press release on pages 11, 13 and 20-23.

THIRD QUARTER 2010 HIGHLIGHTS

- Nokia net sales of EUR 10.3 billion, up 5% year-on-year and 3% sequentially (down 2% and up 1% at constant currency).

- Devices & Services net sales of EUR 7.2 billion, up 4% year-on-year and 6% sequentially (down 5% and up 2% at constant currency).

- Services net sales of EUR 159 million, up 7% year-on-year and 1% sequentially; billings of EUR 325 million, up 89% year-on-year and 10% sequentially.

- Nokia total mobile device volumes of 110.4 million units, up 2% year-on- year and down 1% sequentially.

- Nokia converged mobile device (smartphone and mobile computer) volumes of 26.5 million units, up 61% year-on-year and 10% sequentially.

- Nokia mobile device ASP (including services revenue) of EUR 65, up from EUR 64 in Q3 2009 and EUR 61 in Q2 2010.

- Devices & Services gross margin of 29.0%, down from 30.9% in Q3 2009 and 30.2% in Q2 2010.

- Devices & Services non-IFRS operating margin of 10.5%, down from 11.4% in Q3 2009 and up from 9.5% in Q2 2010.

- NAVTEQ non-IFRS net sales of EUR 252 million, up 52% year-on-year and flat sequentially (up 47% and down 2% at constant currency).

- Nokia Siemens Networks net sales of EUR 2.9 billion, up 7% year-on-year and down 3% sequentially (flat and down 4% at constant currency).

- Nokia Siemens Networks non-IFRS operating margin of -3.9%, down from - 1.9% in Q3 2009 and 1.7% in Q2 2010.

- Nokia operating cash flow of EUR 439 million, and cash generated from operations EUR 1 206 million.

- Total cash and other liquid assets of EUR 10.2 billion and net cash and other liquid assets of EUR 4.4 billion, at the end of Q3 2010.

- Nokia taxes continued to be unfavorably impacted by Nokia Siemens Networks taxes as no tax benefits are recognized for certain Nokia Siemens Networks deferred tax items. In Q3 2010, this was more than offset by lower Devices & Services taxes due to dividend withholding tax legislation changes in certain jurisdictions with a one-quarter impact. If Nokia's estimated long-term tax rate of 26% had been applied, non-IFRS Nokia EPS would have been approximately 1.5 Euro cents lower.

STEPHEN ELOP, NOKIA CEO:

"In the five weeks since joining Nokia, I have found a company with many great strengths and a history of achievement that are second to none in the industry. And yet our company faces a remarkably disruptive time in the industry, with recent results demonstrating that we must reassess our role in and our approach to this industry.

Some of our most recent product launches illustrate that we have the talent, the capacity to innovate, and the resources necessary to lead through this period of disruption. We will make both the strategic and operational improvements necessary to ensure that we continue to delight our customers and deliver superior financial results to our shareholders."

Nokia's third quarter 2010 reported operating profit increased to EUR 403 million, compared with an operating loss of EUR 426 million in the third quarter 2009 and an operating profit of EUR 295 million in the second quarter 2010. Nokia's third quarter 2010 reported operating margin was 3.9%, compared with -4.3% in the third quarter 2009 and 2.9% in the second quarter 2010. Nokia's third quarter 2010 non-IFRS operating profit decreased to EUR 634 million, compared with EUR 741 million in the third quarter 2009 and EUR 660 million in the second quarter 2010. Nokia's third quarter 2010 non-IFRS operating margin was 6.2%, compared with 7.6% in the third quarter 2009 and 6.6% in the second quarter 2010. The year-on-year decrease in Nokia's non-IFRS operating margin resulted from a decline in Devices & Services and Nokia Siemens Networks' non- IFRS operating margins that were only partially offset by an increase in NAVTEQ's non-IFRS operating margin. Sequentially, the decline in Nokia Siemens Networks' non-IFRS operating margin was largely offset by increases in Devices & Services and NAVTEQ's non-IFRS operating margins.

The following chart sets out Nokia Group's cash flow (for the periods indicated) and financial position (at the end of the periods indicated), as well as the year-on-year and sequential growth rates.

In the third quarter 2010, cash generated from operations increased on a year- on-year basis due to net working capital improvements. Sequentially we benefited to a lesser extent than in the second quarter of 2010 from decreases in net working capital, and this resulted in a sequential decline in cash generated from operations. In addition to the aforementioned impacts, in the third quarter 2010 we experienced cash outflows related to foreign exchange hedging activities, both operative as well as balance sheet, and this led to year-on-year and sequential declines in operating cash flow. Both total as well as net cash and other liquid assets increased in the third quarter 2010 as a result of positive overall cash generation.

The year-on-year 4% net sales increase resulted primarily from higher ASPs and device volumes in most regions. Sequentially, the 6% net sales increase was primarily driven by higher ASPs. Net sales in the third quarter 2010 were negatively impacted by industry-wide shortages of certain components, particularly in the low end of the market where Nokia's position is strong, and we expect this situation to continue through the fourth quarter 2010 and into 2011. At constant currency, Devices & Services net sales would have decreased 5% year-on-year and increased 2% sequentially.

Of our total Devices & Services net sales, services contributed EUR 159 million in the third quarter 2010, compared with EUR 148 million in the third quarter 2009 and EUR 158 million in the second quarter 2010. Services billings in the third quarter 2010 were EUR 325 million, compared with EUR 172 million in the third quarter 2009 and EUR 295 million in the second quarter 2010.

An overall improved demand environment primarily contributed to Nokia's 2% year- on-year increase in global mobile device volumes during the third quarter 2010. However, this was largely offset by the impact of industry-wide shortages of certain components, particularly in the low end of the market where Nokia's position is strong, during the third quarter 2010. On a sequential basis, Nokia's 1% decrease in global mobile device volumes was primarily due to these industry-wide component shortages.

The year-on-year 2% increase in our ASP was primarily due to converged mobile devices representing a greater proportion of our overall mobile device volumes and the appreciation of certain currencies against the Euro, offset to some extent by general price erosion and a higher proportion of lower-priced converged mobile device sales. On a sequential basis, the 6% increase in our ASP was primarily driven by converged mobile devices representing a greater proportion of our overall mobile device volumes and the appreciation of certain currencies against the Euro, offset to some extent by general price erosion. The 28% year-on-year and 4% sequential declines in our converged mobile devices ASPs were mainly driven by an increase in the proportion of lower-priced converged mobile devices sales consistent with our strategy to reach wider groups of consumers with our smartphones, as well as price pressure in certain high- end smartphones.

Profitability. Devices & Services gross profit (reported and non-IFRS) decreased 3% to EUR 2.1 billion, compared with EUR 2.1 billion in the third quarter 2009, and increased 1% compared to EUR 2.1 billion in the second quarter 2010. The gross margin (reported and non-IFRS) was 29.0% in the third quarter 2010, compared with 30.9% in the third quarter 2009 and 30.2% in the second quarter 2010. The year-on-year and sequential gross margin declines were primarily due to material cost erosion being less - driven by both industry-wide shortages of certain components and the appreciation of certain currencies against the Euro - than general product price erosion. Year-on-year, the gross margin decline was offset to some extent by a more favorable one-quarter foreign exchange hedging impact, converged mobile devices representing a greater proportion of our overall mobile device volumes and a positive 80 basis point one-quarter royalty income impact. Sequentially, the gross margin decline was offset to some extent by converged mobile devices representing a greater proportion of our overall mobile device volumes and a positive 80 basis point one-quarter royalty income impact. Nokia sees shortages of certain components impacting our business through the fourth quarter 2010 and into 2011.

Devices & Services reported operating profit increased 3% to EUR 807 million, compared with EUR 785 million in the third quarter 2009, and increased 26% compared with EUR 643 million in the second quarter 2010. The reported operating margin was 11.3% in the third quarter 2010, compared with 11.4% in the third quarter 2009 and 9.5% in the second quarter 2010. Devices & Services non- IFRS operating profit decreased 5% to EUR 750 million compared with EUR 787 million in the third quarter 2009, and increased 16% compared with EUR 647 million in the second quarter 2010. The non-IFRS operating margin was 10.5% in the third quarter 2010, compared with 11.4% in the third quarter 2009 and 9.5% in the second quarter 2010. The year-on-year decrease in non-IFRS operating profit was driven primarily by the lower gross margin. Sequentially, the increase in non- IFRS operating profit was primarily due to higher net sales and lower operating expenses, offset to some extent by the lower gross margin.

NAVTEQ

Net Sales. Third quarter 2010 NAVTEQ reported net sales increased 52% year- on- year to EUR 252 million, compared with EUR 166 million in the third quarter 2009, and were unchanged sequentially. The year-on-year increase in reported net sales was primarily driven by improved sales of map licenses to mobile device customers as well as improved demand and higher navigation uptake rates in the automotive industry. Sequentially, the positive impact of sales of map licenses to mobile device customers on NAVTEQ's net sales was offset by lower sales from other segments. At constant currency, NAVTEQ net sales would have increased 47% year-on-year and increased 2% sequentially.

Profitability. In the third quarter 2010, NAVTEQ's gross profit (reported and non-IFRS) increased to EUR 213 million, compared with EUR 146 million in the third quarter 2009. Year-on-year, the gross margin (reported and non-IFRS) declined to 84.5%, compared to 88.0%. NAVTEQ's reported gross profit was EUR 205 million in the second quarter 2010, with a gross margin of 81.3%. Non- IFRS gross profit was EUR 206 million in the second quarter 2010 with a non-IFRS gross margin of 81.4%.

In the third quarter 2010, NAVTEQ's reported operating loss decreased to EUR 48 million, compared with a EUR 68 million loss in the third quarter 2009 and a EUR 81 million loss in the second quarter 2010. The reported operating margin was -19.0% in the third quarter 2010, compared -41.0% in the third quarter 2009 and -32.1% in the second quarter 2010. NAVTEQ's non-IFRS operating profit was EUR 74 million, compared with EUR 43 million in the third quarter 2009 and EUR 50 million in the second quarter 2010. The non-IFRS operating margin was 29.4% in the third quarter 2010, compared with 25.9% in the third quarter 2009 and 19.8% in the second quarter 2010. The year-on-year increase in NAVTEQ's non-IFRS operating margin was primarily due to higher net sales, offset to some extent by a lower gross margin and higher operating expenses. The sequential increase in NAVTEQ's non-IFRS operating margin was primarily due to the higher gross margin, as well as lower operating expenses.

+----------------------+--------+--------+-----------+--------+-----------+

The year-on-year 7% increase in net sales was primarily driven by increased sales of 3G network infrastructure as well as network planning and optimization services and network operations activities. The sequential 3% decline in net sales was primarily driven by a seasonally weaker infrastructure market. Net sales in the third quarter 2010 benefited from some improvement in overall component availability, as well as an improvement in the industry-wide issue related to security clearances in India which was preventing the completion of product sales to customers, compared to the second quarter 2010. Of total Nokia Siemens Networks net sales, services contributed EUR 1.4 billion in the third quarter 2010, compared with EUR 1.3 billion in the third quarter 2009 and EUR 1.4 billion in the second quarter 2010.

Profitability. Nokia Siemens Networks reported gross profit decreased 10% to EUR 702 million compared with EUR 778 million in the third quarter 2009, and decreased 19% compared with EUR 869 million in the second quarter 2010. The reported gross margin was 23.9% in the third quarter 2010, compared with 28.2% in the third quarter 2009 and 28.6% in the second quarter 2010. Nokia Siemens Networks non-IFRS gross profit in the third quarter 2010 decreased 8% to EUR 733 million compared with EUR 794 million in the third quarter 2009, and decreased 22% compared with EUR 937 million in the second quarter 2010. The non- IFRS gross margin was 24.9% in the third quarter 2010, compared with 28.8% in the third quarter 2009 and 30.8% in the second quarter 2010. The lower year-on- year and sequential non-IFRS gross margins in the third quarter 2010 were primarily due to a higher portion of lower-margin products in the business mix, the continued component shortages that impacted deliveries into certain higher margin markets and certain one-quarter items, some of the impact coming through very late during the quarter.

Nokia Siemens Networks third quarter 2010 reported operating loss was EUR 282 million, compared with a reported operating loss of EUR 1 107 million in the third quarter 2009 and a reported operating loss of EUR 179 million in the second quarter 2010. The reported operating margin was -9.6% in the third quarter 2010, compared with -40.1% in the third quarter 2009 and -5.9% in the second quarter 2010. Nokia Siemens Networks non-IFRS operating loss was EUR 116 million in the third quarter 2010, compared with a non-IFRS operating loss of EUR 53 million in the third quarter 2009 and a non-IFRS operating profit of EUR 51 million in the second quarter 2010. The non-IFRS operating margin was - 3.9% in the third quarter 2010, compared with -1.9% in the third quarter 2009 and 1.7% in the second quarter 2010. The year-on-year and sequential declines in Nokia Siemens Networks non-IFRS operating results were primarily due to the lower gross margin in the third quarter 2010. The year-on-year decline was offset to some extent by higher net sales and lower operating expenses in the third quarter 2010.
