NIM signs deal with Nordisk Mobiltelefon for handset navigation and tracking
Networks In Motion (NIM), today announced an agreement with Nordisk Mobiltelefon AB (NMT), a mobile communications operator (3G CDMA450 network) licensed in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Poland and Ireland, to provide mobile phone navigation and group finder services.

Nordisk will offer NMT Navigator, which includes turn-by-turn, voice-prompted directions as well as local search of millions of points of interest and detailed color maps, and NMT Team Finder, which tracks friends, workforce, children or family, to its customers in Q1 2008.

“We chose Networks In Motion because of its proven success in the U.S. and because they provide unique functionality, better maps and more effective user-interfaces than its competitors,” said Johan Lodenius, co-founder of Nordisk Mobiltelefon AB. “By providing NIM’s applications to our consumer and enterprise customers, we’re able to offer unique applications for finding people or places, with extremely high availability, through our outstanding network coverage and high precision assisted GPS service.”

NMT will launch 3G mobile telephony service in Norway and Sweden in 2008; the company is currently offering mobile broadband services in Norway, Sweden and Denmark.

This is the first European wireless carrier signed by Networks in Motions which opened offices in Europe (Sweden and Spain) earlier this year.
