The world's largest cell-phone manufacturer said on Thursday that it is adding more resources for its Mobile Search service, allowing users to find more of what they are looking for, despite location.
Finnish-based Nokia added search services for Canada, Denmark and German mobile markets, teaming up with local directory companies to enable precise local searches.
You can get lost in many parts of the world now, but connect to Mobile Search and you're soon on the way to your destination, whether it's a restaurant, business or other local destination. We're thrilled to be adding so many new local search providers to our Mobile Search offering, it certainly reinforces our dedication to provide local Internet services directly to your pocket, said Ralph Eric Kunz, vice president, Multimedia Experiences, at Nokia.
Nokia's mobile search application lets users find phone numbers and services in their area, and once the required destination has been located, the application can direct users to the right location with the aid of a digital map.
Mobile Search has already seen a tremendous increase in users across Finland, France, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom, the company said.
The Nokia N80 Internet Edition, Nokia N73, Nokia N93, Nokia N70, Nokia N71, Nokia 6630, Nokia 6680, and Nokia 6681 all support the search service.
