Nokia teams up with Lonely Planet

Partnership to bring Lonely Planet to Nokia handsets

The soon to be launched 6210 Navigator will feature Nokia Maps 2.0, allowing access to Lonely Planet city guides.

Nokia and Lonely Planet today announced a partnership to distribute Lonely Planet content via the Nokia Maps application. Owners of Nokia handsets can now purchase and download Lonely Planet city guides for use on their phones.

Currently, guides for more than 100 cities are available; Lonely Planet plans to make more destinations available in the future.

The Lonely Planet guides help travellers find places to eat, shop and sleep, as well as describing the popular sights and nightlife for each destination.

“Lonely Planet is a well-known brand amongst travellers and stands for adventure and editorial independence”, said Bruce Webb, Nokia Australia's context and advertising manager.

Chris Boden, Lonely Planet’s director of global business, added: “The mobile phone is the most ubiquitous communication device on the planet and is increasingly becoming an essential travel tool — providing portability, location-awareness and always-on access to real-time information, all in a single package."

The Lonely Planet maps cost $14.99 per city and can be found in the 'Guides' section in the 'Extras' menu of Nokia Maps.

The latest 2.0 version of Nokia Maps is required; it is freely available for selected Nokia mobile phones. Specific maps can be downloaded directly to selected phones or by using the Nokia Map Loader on a PC.

The announcement precedes the launch of Nokia’s second Navigator phone in Australia, the 6210 Navigator. The 6210 will come with Nokia Maps 2.0 and be pre-loaded with Australian and New Zealand maps.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
