Find your way by selling old phone and investing in Nokia handset
17 August 2010 — 11:48 AM
Consumers hoping to find their way in the mobile market may find selling used phones and investing in one of Nokia's models is a shrewd move.
Rhiain, writing for the Nokia Conversations blog, says there are a number of apps available through the brand's Ovi Store that will help users with navigation.
For example, the ViewRanger GPS feature turns any phones on one of Nokia's leading operating systems into "an enormously powerful tool for exploring".
There is also the Explorers Tracker app, which is described by the author as "a combination [of an] outdoor guide and expedition log book".
Finally, the expert recommends OpenTable, a function that allows people to book a table at a restaurant close to their current location.
Clicking on any eatery brings up results about its menu, price range and distance from where the phone is being used.
In 2007, Nokia was recognised as the world's fifth-most valuable brand.
Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, says: "Nowadays there are apps for a variety of smartphones. If you fancy this type of handset you could trade-in your old handset for cash."
