[Content-driven services expected to build confidence in GPRS.]

by Paul de Bendern, Cannes, France -- "Nokia, the world's leading cellphone maker, said on Thursday music, video, and picture messaging would replace popular text messages as a major source of revenue for mobile operators pressed to deliver on huge investments they are making in the wireless Internet.

"Multi-media messaging will give immediate returns for operators in terms of revenues," Niklas Savander, vice president of Mobile Internet Applications at Nokia, told Reuters in an interview at the GSM World Congress, a trade fair in Cannes.

"We think it will take off like SMS (short messaging service) did," he said, adding he expected the service to be fully up-and-running by the end of this year in Europe.

"The new service will offer mobile operators a way to exploit their new high-speed networks and generate revenues quickly, amid concerns that third-generation technology will take longer to develop than previously anticipated.
