[New W-CDMA compatible handsets for 3's UK network announced and include the Motorola A1000, E1000 and C975, the NEC e338 and LG's U8130 and U8138 models. All support video mobile services and will arrive in stores later this month.]

London -- 3, the UK's first video mobile network, today announces the launch of six new handset models ahead of the Christmas trading period. The additional models bring 3's handset portfolio to twelve, effectively doubling 3's range of video mobiles and enhancing the customers' choice of features and functionality across a range of prices.

The six new models are supplied by some of the world's leading 3G handset manufacturers - Motorola, NEC and LG - and will also be on offer in the other worldwide markets where 3 operates. All the new models support the full range of 3's video mobile services and will be on sale across UK from November.

The new range will complement 3's existing portfolio of leading handsets, namely the LG U8110 and the LG U8120, 3's flagship contract handsets, and the NEC e616V and the NEC e228, 3's best selling handsets on ThreePay.

Motorola is delivering three models. The Motorola A1000 is the most advanced 3G video mobile on the market, with Symbian operating system and an integrated 1.2 Mega-pixel camera. The Motorola E1000 is a fully featured high-end video mobile with 1.2 megapixel camera, built-in MP3 player and Bluetooth. The third is the Motorola C975 which will be available on ThreePay, 3's great value pay-as-you-go offer.

NEC introduces the smallest and lightest 3G video mobile to go on sale in Europe - the new slimline NEC e338 - which is exclusive to 3. This follows on from the launch in October of the NEC e616V the most advanced handset available on ThreePay and brings the total number of NEC models available on 3's great value price plans to four.

LG boosts its range with the addition of two new models, the LG U8130 and LG U8138. These handsets are enhanced versions of the two top selling LG handsets this summer.

Bob Fuller, 3 UK CEO said, "3 is the fastest growing mobile network in the UK. With these six new models, we're doubling our portfolio and offering customers an enhanced choice of video mobiles in the run up to Christmas. Our portfolio of twelve leading handsets combined with our great value and top quality services, makes 3 an unbeatable proposition for the Christmas market. We believe this is going to be a 3G Christmas."

This range of models ensures that 3 offers the most extensive choice of 3G handsets in the UK market.
