Handmark will have its software bundled with the Nokia E60, Nokia E61 and Nokia E70 shipping in the UK. Nokia has selected The MICHELIN Guide and ViaMichelin digital maps and route planning to be distributed with the first of the new Nokia E-series mobile devices.
This is the first commercial service resulting from the recent partnership between Handmark and ViaMichelin, an European company expert in digital mapping and travel assistance services.
For over 100 years, The MICHELIN Guide has provided recommendations for hotels and restaurants throughout Europe. The wireless version of The MICHELIN Guide puts the choices in restaurants and hotels at the consumers' fingertips no matter where they travel in Europe.
“We believe The MICHELIN Guide will be useful for the users of the Nokia Eseries phones,” said David King, Senior Product Manager of Nokia's UK business device unit. “It is great that Handmark and ViaMichelin are working together to enable this addition to cater and support the busy employee and executive lifestyle.”
