NOKIA: Nokia Announces Product Advisory for AC-300 Charger for the Lumia 2520 tablet in select European countries

Espoo, Finland - Nokia today announced a product advisory for the European and
UK variant of the AC-300 charger, which is used exclusively with the Lumia
2520 tablet. Consumers in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Russia,
Switzerland and UK are strongly advised to suspend use of the charger until
further notice. Also, consumers who purchased the Lumia 2520 travel charger
accessory in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Russia, Switzerland, UK and
the US are strongly advised to suspend use of the travel charger accessory.

In total, approximately 30,000 chargers are impacted by this advisory. This
includes approximately 600 travel charger accessories sold in the US.

During an internal quality control process, Nokia identified a potential
product quality issue that may potentially lead to a safety concern with
certain AC-300 chargers, manufactured by a third-party supplier. Under
certain conditions, the plastic cover of the charger's exchangeable plug
could come loose and separate. If loose and separated, certain internal
components pose a hazard of an electric shock if touched while the plug
remains in a live socket.

"While there have been no confirmed consumer incidents related to this
potential quality issue, product quality and safety are top priorities at
Nokia," said Jo Harlow, EVP Smart Devices. "We apologize to the owners of the
Lumia 2520, and we are working with urgency to minimize the inconvenience."

Sales of the Lumia 2520 tablet and the travel charger accessories, including
the AC-300 chargers in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Russia,
Switzerland and UK, have therefore been temporarily delayed. In the US, we
have suspended sales of the travel charger accessory.

The AC-300 charger is exclusively designed to be used with Nokia Lumia 2520
tablet. All other Nokia chargers can be used in a normal manner.
