Nokia introduces 6110 Navigator with integrated GPS
Nokia has introoduced the new Nokia 6110 Navigator, a navigation-enabled mobile phone designed for the mass market, bringing together GPS (Global Positioning System) and AGPS (Assisted Global Positioning System) functionality with always-on mobile connectivity.

The Nokia 6110 Navigator features full personal navigation experience with integrated maps, routing and navigation. With the Nokia 6110 Navigator, users can quickly view their current location on the map, search for destinations, find specific routes, or locate services such as restaurants, hotels or shops that are nearby.

Featuring full turn-by-turn 3D navigation, the Nokia 6110 Navigator suggests the best route to follow to reach a location by car or on foot. Clear instructions by voice guidance and turn arrows on a map ensure finding the fastest way to the destination.

The Nokia 6110 Navigator comes with a local map pre-installed on the memory card ready for immediate navigation. Additional maps and content - such as traffic information, weather services and travel guides - can be purchased online. Additional maps can be transferred to the phone by using the Nokia Map Manager application included.

The maps also show thousands of points of interest, such as restaurants, hotels, shops or other services nearby the location, including phone numbers and web addresses for calling and browsing directly with the phone. And, because the map's information is located in the mobile phone, it can be shared with family or friends with the touch of a button.

The device connects to HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) networks with speeds up to 3.6 Mbps. It also supports WCDMA 2100 HSDPA and GSM/GPRS/EDGE quad-band (850/900/1800/1900 MHz). Emails can be handled in real time by push email, which also supports attachments as well as features a Message reader function to read aloud your emails.

The Nokia 6110 Navigator is expected to begin shipping in the second quarter of 2007.
