About Nokia Drive & Nokia Music :
“Nokia Maps works in a similar way to Microsoft’s Bing local scout. Users can search for local directions and Nokia provides smart routes for walking, driving and public transport. The app will also surface places to see, eat and highlights of local areas. The navigation works step-by-step, similar to Microsoft’s own mapping equivalent. Users can also review locations and share them across their social networks. Locations can be pinned to the Home Screen for quick access to regular places of interest.”
“Nokia Music is designed to be exclusively available on the company’s upcoming Nokia Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 Windows Phone devices. Nokia Music is another free out of the box application for the Lumia 800 and 710 devices. Nokia Music uses a Wi-Fi or 3G data connection to connect and stream thousands of free music tracks. The application works as an internet radio app, similar to services such as last FM. Nokia Music users can pick between different categories of music and have a selection of music streamed to their devices within seconds. The categories of music include rock, pop and classical and a variety of other genres.”
