Nokia Ovi now has free navigation

Nokia has just announced that navigation is now free for compatible phones.

Recently Nokia revamped their mapping application. It’s now pretty decent but the downside was that you had to pay for navigation – I didn’t have a problem with that but the thing is you can only purchase a subscription for it, it wasn’t a one time purchase. It made me feel like I was being nickel and dimed (only navigation cost a lot more then that).

Anyways now it’s free. Get it at

Nokia N86 along with 6350, 2730 and 6750 coming to Canada


I just noticed that Nokia Canada is bringing the N86. I use a S60 powered N85 sometimes and I really like it. The N86 8MP has the N85′s OLED display plus it ups the processor speed from 369Mhz to 434Mhz (same as the N97) and the camera resolution from 5 to 8 megapixels. Nokia isn’t saying which carrier will have the N86…

The N86 comes in HSPA 850/1900/2100 and 900/1900/2100 varients so it’s safe to say the N86 won’t be available on Globalive. That leaves either Rogers, Bell or Telus.

Also coming are the Nokia 6350, 2730 and 6750.


The 6350 is a S40 powered clamshell phone  with 3G.


The 2730 is a S40 5th edition fp 1 candybar phone with 3G, a 3.5mm AV jack (so it has TV out?), and 3G. It’s got Quad band GSM with dual band 3G (850/1900) so it will either be on Rogers, Bell or Telus.


Finally the 6750 is a S40 6th edition powered clamshell phone with 850/1900/2100 3G. Again that frequency support suggests either Rogers, Bell or Telus.
