Nokia Maps 2.0 Beta

Nokia Maps 2.0 Nokia announced its Maps 2.0 Beta last week; its key feature is pedestrian navigation — i.e., turn-by-turn navigation on foot, rather than in a car (see also CNet Reviews). CNet’s Margaret Reardon tried out the service in Barcelona, with an eye toward its utility for city dwellers: “I’ve lived in the same apartment in Manhattan for 10 years. So even though Nokia’s new phone and Maps 2.0 service impressed me on my little tour, it’s safe to say that I don’t really need to spend that kind of money on a phone that will help me get around my own neighborhood. But I also see how cool it would be to have while traveling.”
