Navigation applications for the Apple iPhone and Google Android smartphones are quite expensive, and Nokia has obviously seen an opportunity to entice customers to their range of mobile phones, as they are now giving away Ovi Maps and Navigation for free to customers who own a GPS enabled mobile phone.
Previously, Nokia customers only had access to basic navigation services for free, and they had to pay extra for the Ovi Maps and Navigation feature.
The services will be available on ten of Nokia’s GPS enabled smartphones from today which include the Nokia N97, Nokia 5800 Xpress Music and the Nokia E72. Nokia plans to make the free software available to all of their GPS enabled mobile phones over the coming months.
This is great news for Nokia owners, but will it be enough to help Nokia’s falling sales as they lose out to Google Android phones and the Apple iPhone?
