Nokia‘s just grabbed a new trademark over in Finland, hinting at new service on the way, Ovi Prime Place. Is Nokia Maps about to get even smarter?
The trademark for Prime Place was filed by Nokia on 14 October, and according to the description, pertains to “Mobile advertising services; providing an online searchable database featuring information about local businesses.”
That would suggest Nokia has some form of Yell-like business listing on the cards, but given Espoo’s push towards social networking on its handsets and in its apps, we reckon it might come with a twist.
For instance, a Nokia blower with GPS baked in could automatically detect where you are when you step off a plane and pull up train times, local hotels and more, without you even having to ask, then share them with others.
There are no more details on what Nokia Prime Place is right now, but given how quickly the X series phones followed the discovery of their trademark in August, we may not have too long to wait to find out.
