Nokia Nuron - 3G Phone with On-Board Navigation
Just in case you thought that things were settling into a nice Garmin v. TomTom and iPhone v. Android war with neatly drawn lines, Nokia is launching the Noika Nuron 5230 in the US that will come with onboard maps, and integrated navigation capabilities; Nokia, you know, the owners of NAVTEQ - the map maker who stars in the NAVTEQ v. TeleAtlas wars.
The Nuron is Symbian based and is coming out in a few weeks for the T-Mobile system and has a 3.2-inch display and is Nokia's first US phone with on board navigation. The phone will come with a $39/mo minimum plan plus a $10/mo dataplan, making it line up pretty well with other smartphone offerings in the market. What makes it stand out is that it is only $69 for the phone.
It will have driving and pedestrian routing, as well as lane assistance built in. The phone also comes with free real-time traffic updates, event and movie listings, and weather forecasts. Of course, just in case you need more, you can get it from the full HTML browser.
