Nokia and Navicore have come together to bring GPS navigation capabilities to the Nokia 770 internet tablet, in an attempt to bridge the Linux-based device into new markets.
The Navicore Personal GPS navigation software, which has long been available on Nokia’s S60 and S80 based smartphones, provides turn-by-turn navigation while driving, riding, or walking, as well as including points-of-interest such as restaurants, hotels, petrol stations, and local tourist venues.
Navicore Personal will be available as either a standalone Navigation Kit that includes the software along with a Bluetooth GPS receiver module and car holder, or as a complete all-in-one Navigation Bundle that includes the Nokia 770 in addition to the Navicore software and GPS receiver.
The Navigation Kit for Nokia 770 Internet Tablet and the Navigation Bundle is estimated to be available for Christmas at selected outlets such as Nokia Stores in the UK run by Mobile Phones Direct, Dabs.com and also Nokia online through www.nokia.com
