NEW YORK (AP) -- Finland's University of Oulu says it will establish a research laboratory with financing and expertise from the chip giant Intel Corp. and cell phone maker Nokia Corp.

The university said Tuesday that the lab will initially include about two dozen researchers working on mobile Internet technology.

The first project involves using 3-D technology for mobile phone displays. "3D technology could change the way we use our mobile devices and make our experiences with them much more immersive," Nokia Chief Technical Officer Rich Green said in a statement.

Tekes, the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology, is providing extra financing.
