"The multimedia business group is currently evaluating a partner for a single campaign in 2005," a Nokia spokesman said.

Grey won the October 2003 global launch of Nokia's N-Gage, a mobile phone with a wireless gaming deck, after a pitch against Bates and Richard Group, an independent Dallas shop that was Nokia's U.S. agency until Grey won that business in early 2004 after a pitch.
