As mentioned earlier, Nokia announced today that Ovi Maps and some other premium content would be freely available across all Nokia GPS enabled smartphones.
According to Nokia, “Until today, Navigation has been kept in the hands of the few. Today that changes. We realised that billions of people around the world already have mobile phones that are perfectly suited to delivering Navigation. So we’re going to let them do that. From this day on, Navigation on your Nokia, with Ovi Maps, will be free for everyone, everywhere, to get people to the places they love. Now, and forever.”
