Nokia inks deal with wireless carrier Etisalat for satnav service
Etisalat and Nokia today announced a joint collaboration to provide convenient access to advanced mobile Internet based services which include maps, navigation and games on Nokia devices, based on Nokia’s Ovi platform.

Subscribers to Nokia Maps will be able to choose to combine their payments with their Etisalat account. The payment will be directed to their account automatically, if chosen accordingly, while customers will also have the existing option of paying through their credit cards.

“The United Arab Emirates will be the first country in the Middle East and Africa to roll out this service during Q2, 2009, while the cooperation will be extended to other Etisalat operations in the Middle East and Africa in due course”, said the press release.

Etisalat operates in 18 countries across Asia, the Middle East and Africa, servicing over 74m customers.
