Ovi Maps includes Qype content; Nokia shipping free in-car kits

Ovi Maps now includes Qype, Europe’s biggest portal for local community-based reviews, helping people find new places wherever they are, leaving nothing overlooked.

Initially offering information on more than 20,000 cities, the Qype community enriches Ovi Maps with hundreds of thousands of reviews and recommendations from locals and travelers on many European hotspots like cafés, shops, spas and hotels, giving the inside track before arriving.

And, with a new post added to Qype every 40 seconds, people are assured to have the latest information to help them make the best choices no matter what they are looking for.

For people planning a road trip, Nokia has started to include car kits with new smartphones in-the-box at no extra cost. And, with the added convenience of pedestrian routes for exploring cities on foot, swapping the phone from car to pocket makes navigating around new places easier, no matter how people choose to do it.

Note: Nokia now supplies car kits in-the-box with nine of its smartphones. A car holder and car charger are included with the Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition, Nokia N97, Nokia N97 mini, Nokia 6710 Navigator, and the Nokia X6. A car holder is now included with the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia E52, Nokia E72 and Nokia 5230.
