Nokia's free navigation service surpasses 1.4 million downloads in 10 days

3 Feb

On January 21, Nokia officially announced that the new version of its Ovi maps would be downloadable free of cost and till 31 January, there have been 1.4 million downloads of this free navigation service. At the moment, Nokia is getting one download request every second!

At present, 10 Nokia smartphones are compatible with this service while the to-be launched GPS-enabled devices will have Ovi maps pre-embedded.


Looking at the current stats, indicating more-than-a-million downloads, its certain Nokia has taken a sigh of relief as for now. But we still think it would have been better had Nokia had offered free navigation since day one (the company charged users by making them purchase a licence if they wanted to use turn-by-turn navigation).
