To celebrate the fact that Ovi Maps is apparently now free to "everyone, everywhere" (so long as you've got to have the right phone), Nokia has launched a fleet of black cabs across certain cities meaning those who spot the special taxis can get their fare for free.
Each special cab is fitted with a Nokia X6 handset so passengers can try out the Nokia Ovi Maps service, giving people a chance to track their journey turn by turn using the voice navigation system.
Commenting on the OVI Maps cabs, Nokia brand manager, Chris Jones said: “The OVI Maps cabs will help get people from A to B, but allows them to record their own sat-nav voice packs so they can be calling the shots to the cabbie. So, if you would like to hear your girlfriend’s, boyfriend’s, son’s or grandma’s voice on your sat-nav then Own Voice for OVI Maps is just for you”.
