Nokia expands its Mobile Search, a free software solution for Nokia Nseries and other Nokia devices based on the S60 platform.
People easily can find what they want, when they want. The Mobile Search application fast-tracks the user directly to the desired contact number, with just one click. Users of this online search tool in select countries across Europe will have access to decisive local search capabilities from their Nokia mobile devices.
In addition to the initial countries, with Fonecta and Eniro in Finland and Sweden and Yell.com in the UK, Mobile Search will now be at the fingertips of millions of Nokia mobile device users in Denmark, France, Italy, Norway and Spain. The users will be able to access local content from Eniro, Findexa, Fonecta, Page Jaunes, TPI PaginasAmarillas.es, Seat Pagine Gialle and Yell.com. Once Mobile Search has found the required destination, the application directs the user to the right location with the aid of a digital map with dynamic panning and zooming, where maps are available.
Mobile Search users in France and Sweden have the added benefit of locating friends or family with people search, available in these two countries.
Local search engines enable country specific quests for services or businesses – anything from bakeries and bars to hotels and hostels. The search results reveal the relevant contact data, and with the push of a button, the user can call that pizza place directly, or choose to save it straight to Contacts. Once the desired search has been located, the integrated mapping solution, where available, shows the user how to get there. Share the find by sending the map as a MMS to a friend.
Mobile Search tracks the travels of the user, and automatically offers to change to available local search engines in new locations. The setting can also be changed manually, which would allow dinner reservations for a Parisian restaurant to be made from London, for example.
