Will people sell a mobile phone for 'indoor sat nav'?

A navigation aid to help people who are indoors may not be far away

The imminent arrival of indoor navigation systems may excite a significant number of consumers and persuade them to sell a used mobile phone.

With the cash raised from such a venture, people could splash out on a new model that includes the technology.

Ian, writing the latest Nokia Conversations blog, admits the tool does not sound particularly useful at first.

"But think about the number of times you've struggled to find a particular room in a large hospital, your friends at a concert or even the sock section of a department store," he notes.

An indoor sat nav system may be able to help in such situations and ease the process of locating something in a foreign environment.

The good news for those interested in the feature is that Ian believes it will be on the market soon.

Nokia's outdoor navigation tool, Ovi Maps, was recently named by respondents to one of the blog's polls as the favourite Nokia app.
