Mass market mobile phone with integrated GPS offers instant and easy-to-use maps, routing and navigation
At the annual 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona, Nokia introduced the new Nokia 6110 Navigator, a navigation-enabled mobile phone designed for the mass market. The Nokia 6110 Navigator brings together GPS (Global Positioning System) and AGPS (Assisted Global Positioning System) functionality with always-on mobile connectivity in a feature-rich, compact device. The Nokia 6110 Navigator is expected to begin shipping in the second quarter of 2007 with an estimated retail price of 450 Euro before subsidies or taxes.
The Nokia 6110 Navigator features full personal navigation experience with integrated maps, routing and navigation available with the click of the phone’s one-touch Navigator key. With the Nokia 6110 Navigator, consumers can quickly and easily view their current location on the map, search for destinations, find specific routes, or locate services such as restaurants, hotels or shops that are nearby. Featuring full turn-by-turn 3D navigation, the Nokia 6110 Navigator suggests the best route to follow to reach a location by car or on foot. Clear instructions by voice guidance and turn arrows on a map ensure finding the fastest way to the destination.
“Location-based experience is among the fastest growing areas in mobile devices. Offering integrated GPS functionality, the Nokia 6110 Navigator will put maps, routing and navigation into the hands of the broadest consumer market world-wide,” said Peter Ropke, Senior Vice President, Broad Appeal Business Unit, Nokia. “With the Nokia 6110 Navigator, mobile phone owners will be able to enjoy the benefits of navigation in their daily life and enjoy a wide range of location-based services – whether they want to explore a city, search for restaurants, get weather forecasts, or look for travel guides for a weekend trip.”
The Nokia 6110 Navigator comes with a local map pre-installed on the memory card ready for immediate navigation. Additional maps and content – such as traffic information, weather services and travel guides – can be purchased online. Additional maps can be conveniently transferred to the phone by using the Nokia Map Manager application included.
The maps also show thousands of points of interest, such as restaurants, hotels, shops or other services nearby the location, including phone numbers and web addresses for calling and browsing directly with the phone. And, because the map’s information is located in the mobile phone, it can be shared with family or friends with the touch of a button.
Moreover, the Nokia 6110 Navigator enables fast and seamless access to online information with HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) up to 3.6 Mbps. Emails can be handled in real time by push email, which also supports attachments as well as features a Message reader function to read aloud your emails.
The smart Nokia 6110 Navigator is an ideal tool for 3G multimedia, enabling real time video sharing and video calls, as well as a 2 megapixel camera with a dedicated capture key, panorama mode, and integrated flash. Video clips can be enjoyed with full screen view, and maps and images are clear and crisp to see on the large and bright 2.2″ QVGA screen, offering up to 16 million colors. For extra protection, the camera lens is covered by a protection slide, keeping the images crystal clear.
The Nokia 6110 Navigator is Nokia’s first dedicated smartphone aimed specifically towards the navigation market. This device is another example of the commitment Nokia has to location based experiences such as mapping, navigation and local search and joins the already announced Nokia N95 and Nokia E90 in Nokia’s integrated GPS device portfolio.
Based on the world’s leading smartphone software S60 on Symbian OS, the Nokia 6110 Navigator enables access to a wide range of S60 applications such as Mobile Search or S60 games for additional entertainment and productivity.
