New Delhi, India: Nokia added a new feature to its location-based services (LBS), enabling its smartphone users in two major Indian cities, Delhi and Mumbai, to get real-time traffic updates of their cities.
Speaking to an Indian daily, Nokia Director Sales (Location and Commerce), Rajat Tandon said, “Powered by NAVTEQ Traffic Pro, the ‘traffic feature’ will offer users detailed information on traffic speeds on motorways, main and secondary roads and enable users to plan their travel and save time and fuel and frustration.”
The service would be available on select Nokia smartphones like Nokia N8, Nokia 700, Nokia 701, Nokia E6, Nokia Lumia 800 and Nokia Lumia 710. It can be accessed through ‘Nokia Drive’ on a Symbian device and ‘Nokia Maps’ on Windows devices.
The service is available free of cost and the user will have to just pay for the data charges to use the service, Tandon added.
“Location is at the core of our vision for the future. The aim is to empower people via location-aware technology. Going forward, we will continue to introduce more location-aware services that represent the future of mobility for consumer in India,” stated Tandon.
