Nokia Nearby beta graduates to Nokia StoreMon, 2012-10-15 12:23
With the announcement of the Nokia Asha 308 and 309, we introduced a web app called Nokia Nearby. Even on phones without GPS, Nokia Nearby helps you discover what’s around you, and it uses the same points of interest that you’ll find on other Nokia phones and on maps.nokia.com.
Nokia Nearby for Series 40 was first introduced in a beta trial on Nokia Beta Labs, with the goal of the trial to understand the usability and usefulness of such an app. With the app now being distributed in Nokia Store* for about 50 different Series 40 phone models in over 25 languages, we are concluding the beta trial.
Thanks to everyone that participated in the trial and gave us feedback. With your help we have been able to make the app better and now make it available for more people to enjoy.
* Since Nokia Nearby is a webapp, you'll need the Nokia Xpress browser (v2.0 or newer) installed on your phone as well.
