TripAdvisor, the world’s largest (and my favorite) travel site just announced a new partnership with Nokia that includes an app and an integration of the service into Ovi Maps. It launches today in select markets, with full global roll-out scheduled within a month.
The Nokia C7 has not been officially announced yet, but that doesn’t stop the Hong Kong Hi-Tech magazine from getting their hands on one early. It features Symbian^3, 3.3-inch 640×360 resolution capacitive display, 8mp camera, 720p video, dual LED flash, and so on.
The Nokia C6, E5, and C3 get official US pricing at the Nokia online store. They’re all in the pre-order page, but clicking on any of the devices for more details at the time of publishing this post, results in an error page. This means these devices are coming soon, but we’re not sure when exactly. We’ll keep you updated.
You already know that Framestore is working on a cool visual effects app for the Nokia N8, right? If you’re excited about it like me, then you’d also like to know that they’ve published new videos about mobile and web-based FX Studio that will allow you to add Hollywood-quality special effects to your video clips. The preview of the sample effects look great so far. Take a look.
Who’s getting fired for this? A poster showing the Nokia X6 and Nokia 5230 running Android was spotted on Oxford Street in London. The ad was for Three Mobile. It’s definitely a marketing error because Nokia recently said there were no plans to use Android with their devices. I hope you didn’t get your hopes up.
We just got word that a whole team of folks will be working on the
@NokiaUSCare @NokiaCareUS twitter account to answer questions you have about Nokia products or the Ovi Store. The account was created last June but they just tweeted about the launch today. This could be the fastest way to let someone at Nokia know about the issues you’re experiencing.
The Linux foundation just announced that Meego will be the next platform to be used for In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) by the GENIVI Alliance. To name a few, this major automotive alliance consists of members like BMW, GM, Mitsubishi, Hyundai, Peugeot, and more. No timetable was announced, but they mentioned the reference design builds upon the Meego handset platform which isn’t expected until October this year.
Nokia and Newegg are currently running a promotion over the next month that might interest you. They will be offering some pretty exciting offers on some of Nokia’s latest devices but it requires you to have a quick eye. When you see the egg on the widget flashing (embedded after the jump), it means one of the offers has gone live. For example, one of these deals is a voucher for a Nokia N900 for just $1.
